Finished up work on the Nokia Xpress Web App Builder promo video. It was a fun mix character animation and a symbolic demonstration of the new app building service offered by Nokia.

Everything was built animated and rendered in Lightwave 11 along with the Rhiggit Lite, which worked out pretty well. IK/FK blending and offset controller made animation a pleasure. We went for 12fps, which gave it a nice innocent, stop-motion feel as well as saving on render time :) It was rendered through Lightnet render commander on 4 i7/Xeon machines, averaging 1 minute a frame.

The materials were all pretty simple, with heavy use of the ambient occlusion node. The renders were all in one pass, brought into After Effects for compositing and adding graphical elements.

Of course, 12 fps, that's how to get the stop motion look, thanks for the insight Louis. The work was brilliant again as usual.
