Chapter 3.1 The Walk Cycle

30 10 2008

Michele Bousquet says in her book 3ds max animation with biped,

“The walk cycle can have winning and loosing impact to the overall animation”

I have embedded an experimental biped walk cycle animation that I created to show the impact of a simple 10 step 20mm com step cycle.

See Below.

I composited the robot biped into a still plate to see if there was an increased emotional response from the viewer to the character, I added some lighting effects but didn’t take the time to add the shadow mapping as this was an experiment.

I found that compositing a simple biped animation into a live action plate does add impact to the character and its effect on its environment.
