Here is my new "Mech" animation.


I created the mech from scratch. The chopper is from Turbosquid. The building in a mix of 3D and 2D effects.

Lightwave and After Effects was used.
Thanks for viewing.

Nice work. The only thing that I thought was off a little was the timing during the missle fire sequence. It looked like a very fast acqusition of the target and then fire. Almost too fast. And the strike on the building from impact to the plume of debris and smoke from the facing side didn't quite look fast enough. Other than the timing issues, the animation looks great!

Very cool! But the one thing I noticed was your camera shake effect was a little unrealistic it did not feel like a person was taping it. All together though it look really cool.:thumbsup:

Fun animation. Work on giving more of a sense of weight to your animations. I am watching the mech walk and it seems there is no inertia at play after each footstep. This gives the impression that the mech weighs very little (while the feet are able to bond with the ground at each step to prevent sliding from something that has so little weight).

EDIT: Even the firing of the missiles might push the body backwards a bit from their thrust force.

I'm still uploading animation, in the mean time I've visited your site and found that you forgot to delete dummy contact information from the wordpress theme which is visible if you view it fullscreen on widescreen. I'm in the process of building my own wordpress site so that's why I noticed it.

Cool animation. :o)

That's pretty awesome FX! Camera work is strange and unnatural though.
