My role in the group project (modelling and animating the background) needs to be done early on in order for everyone else to be able to animate their assets correctly.
I’ve animated the complete camera movement for the sequence based on everyone’s animatics.
Here is a playblast synced with our chosen section of audio:
I think the result is really good for a first version. A couple of changes needed to be made from the animatics but I’ve sent the playblast to the group and am waiting on their approval.
I will probably need to finish and render out this animation by the end of the week which means making small adjustments/improvements to the model, adding lighting, and setting up the right render settings.
My texturing abilities are still very basic so I won’t be able to properly texture the whole model in time. The group seem happy with the basic block colours the model currently has, and too detailed textures would be a distraction from their 2D animations.
