FOR THE RESIT:- THE SHORT BUT SWEET MAYA MOVIE..


video
 The maya movie,Of norman taking gaming to far... 
I do have alot to say about this video,for one it is very short but i couldnt work out how to over lap animation without deleting the previous animation i created, I'm proud of the fact i learnt how to use cameras,lighting,and rendering in the time i had to resit the project because before i didn't no how to do any of lose things without needing alot of help, Either way i've forced myself to learn alot in these last months and i'm hoping that can help me towards the future...

FOR THE RESIT:- THE FINAL TOUCHES...

I batch rendered out my group of images into my maya image folder and then imported them into premier pro:-

For some reason each image was set at 5 seconds each so i had to work out how long each image should be by timing out my maya file and audio, I mostly had to change each image sequence one by one as they would not select as a whole at first, I re-imported my audio from audacity into premier pro,and then from memory exported the short movie into a quick time file.

FOR THE RESIT:- LIGHTS,CAMERA,ACTION!

Add caption
Next up was to add area lights on the side of my arcade and two spot lights within the aracde to light up normans face and light up the "game over" screen, My render view was for some reason not working so i had to get a code off the interent to fix the problem because i could not see how the lights were affecting my scene. I add one camera to my scene and used resolution gate to create my animations border. I keyframed out my camera the best i could, I went over its keyframing 5-6 times because i couldnt work out why the camera wouldnt move from the same spot from frame 1, I added a new audio from my star wars cut with my sound program audacity:-



FOR THE RESIT:- finishing off the lip sync and adding a eye brow movement

Afrer finishing off the lip sync from the star wars dialog,i added a slight expression to the ear-brows as normans face looked together to flat, I struggled to find away to over lap animation layers so in the end i had to leave it as just the lip sync and ear brow movement....
