That was some beautiful work, Thibault... thank you very much for sharing!

It would be awesome to see a tutorial on the rigging that was used.

Impressive, most impressive. Very realistic render and movement. Looks like the feathers are sculpted displacement. It worked out great. I wonder if using fibers for the feathers was considered to be too hard to get as good a result, not worth it, or what. I'm curious about that.

The fact that the animators re-animated their work to use the voice actor's outtakes is a gift from them to us. That was so funny and very much appreciated.

This project is a capstone achievement for Lightwave. The rigging, modelling, animating AND rendering.

I asked (on vimeo) if they would consider using the new PBR over octane but it looks like they have that workflow nailed.

Just wonderful.

hey all, i'm the rigger for Able VFX (http://ablevfx.com/) that put this spot together. Thanks for the shout out and website link Thibault! (heads up for any interested parties, Able VFX is located in South Carolina, USA)

Appreciate all the kind compliments this piece has been getting. If people are interested I can do an in depth article/video on how this bird flies, but in the mean time here's a quick and dirty explanation i wrote up in another thread (http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?157123-Rigging-Question&p=1546966&viewfull=1#post1546966).


Quick and dirty explanation, it's a combination of endomorphs and bones. Endomorphs for gross adjustments, bending the feathers up+down and spreading+contracting tail feathers. The rest of feather control comes a from dividing the wing feathers into groups (13 groups/wing in this case) and weighting each feather group to their own bone. Those bones are then (a) parented to the appropriate wing bone, (b) targeted to an individual null (which is hidden in the video) that sits on a DPSpline (I needed the covered percent available in DPSpline vs LW's built in), and (c) assigned a pole item to control banking (the pole is parented to the same wing bone).
