Gymnastics Floor Trick

This is a work-in-progress play blast video of the gymnastics floor scene.  I'm use the Stewart Rig to perform the trick.  Any comments?

Re: Gymnastics Floor Trick

hey MJCA smile

the blocking is looking good smile
It is a bit small, maybe you can get the camera a bit closer and remove the transparent frame, so it is full screen.

did you use a reference for this shot?

from frame 4 the body looks a bit to straight for the run. I guess you could bend/rotate his body a bit forward. At frame 3 it is a bit better, not so straight. I guess you can push that a bit more to get a nice line of action smile

I guess you will have some small isuess at some points then you go to spline.
for example:
>frame 20/21 his armes look like they pause in one pose.
>frame 24/25 his leg stops mid air.
but the spacing of his root looks good to me smile and that is the most important in the blocking.

>from frame 82 his shoulders looks broken, but it is hard to tell because of the resolution. maybe they are translated or rotated to much.
>around frame 134. I guess the spine is bend the wrong way? the pose doesn't look natural.
you can decide if you line up the neck with the spine or you invert the spine to get a flow into the body. I'm not sure what will work better.
> I'm not sure what is happening in the end. frame 203 looks like he has a broken foot, falls to the ground and makes a "bridge"? big_smile that part is a bit confusing.

hope I could help you a bit smile looking forward to your next update!

Re: Gymnastics Floor Trick

oh wow, crazy moves. smile

I guess that can work.
but my first thought was "what is happening to him?", because that movement is so unusual.

This is an update on the work-in-progress playblast video.  I've smooth out the animation from the blocking stage and update the camera movements.  Any comments?

This is a new update on the playblast video.  I started add so overlapping to the animation and I made changes to the camera movements again.  I also added a plane to the scene.  Any comments?

This is the latest update on the work-in-progress playblast video.  I did  some more tweaking to the character and updated the BG.  Can some leave comments on this update, please?

Re: Gymnastics Floor Trick

This is a new update work-in-progress playblast animation video.  I tone down the pop movements on the head.  I've also added some more overlapping to the head and fingers.  I've made some corrections on the flipping in air before he lands back on the ground. The difference between these two video is the camera view.  In the second video, I added a second camera to the scene to get a different view of the animation. Any comments?
