Hello Ruud,

Don't be too hard on him. It's very nice for an 'first idea'. (NL: Eerste opzetje)
The scene is very funny and comic-like. Just like the Jetsons.

Well, what can I say? I'm not the expert.. ;)

I thought that was a great animation.

Well staged, nice animation, novel idea and the render didnt look that bad at all...if you were going for complete realism then ok you might need to work on it a bit!

Well done

thanks for your replies

first thing i must say (i should do it before) is this modeling/animating has been done on a pII450 256mo and a poor graphic card.
moving timeline gives me a 2fps idea of animation. so i did previews and previews and previews and previews...
this is a reason why i did not go ahead with rendering. once i had something i was pretty ok, i rendered the scene.
the objective was animating, staging and fun but not really beauty. neither photorealism :] (in this case i should begun by another model)
however, i could work on picts in a postprod soft like combustion to get something more fine, all of you are right

am glad you laughed

aa low, soft filter adaptative .3 simple blur40%
radio2x6 65% 1bounce exepting background (wich is a simple pict on a oriented poly)

4lights key area and back fill fill colored spot with no shadow
no post prod on pictures, exept sound. i guess i miised a setting :)
render time is approximatly 1 to 1.30 mn/frame 400x300
