Did you see that Newtek symbol on that control panel in that exploding robot?

We put the NewTek logo, LW logo and a whole lot more in all of our movies :)

How are the faces animated? It doesn't look like the heads are using morphs, are they using animated movie images on the heads maybe?

Maybe the textures were animated in a paint program?

Actually DaveL, you win and get the prize. The Faces were acually flat faces that were morphed into a sequence then mapped onto the heads. It is really simple, the facial animation is setup so that timing matches the action, render out enough frames to sync up and that is about it.

About hidden eggs
Oh yeah, you will find all sorts of hidden things in there, these movies are all ways a source of surprise for that.

Ivan,
So if you want Wolverine's snarl to last a little longer or to have it happen a few seconds later, you need to go back to your outside app, change the animation, and then bring it back into LW?

The faces were animated in LW...the faces are LW Geometry with morphs. And like Ivan mentioned...they are rendered and then mapped back onto the head object.
