Great work as usual! Is this the same workflow as your other projects? Or have you introduced some new "tricks?"

Thanks!!

Similar workflow, the team more smaller, only 3 people. :P
In this project we use Motion Capture and Ikbooster to apply (very easy and fast!). tutorial soon.
For vegetation you can see our tutorial in youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bliPxn5e7mM
The rest than usual, Simple Skin for characters, radiosity montecarlo, morphmixer, instances....and coffee, much coffee :)

Great, it'll make a bit more sense now.

Any idea when you'll be doing your Mocap tutorial?
No pressure.....honest :)

Hairy boobs... HOT!!!

Pretty good acheivment considering the level of detail and the length, muy bien hecho. The lip sync, however (in the future section obv) I thought didnt look so great (sorry).

Might just be the compression. We did lipsync that looked great but when compressing it and uploading it it looked very much off. So it MAY depend upon what compression scheme is being used.

I'm not an expert by ANY stretch - just suggesting a possibility.

Thanks!!, all critics are welcome.
The real problem was the production time/budget/people (only three), we donīt have time to refine the lip sync. But itīs true, we should take more time for this. :P

What did you use for lipsync?

We use TAFA and it's been GREAT. VERY easy to make good lipsync FAST.

We made facial animation directly in lightwave (native tools), using MorphMixer and expressions assigned to bones for control morphs.
