Animation polish

Here are the animations I’ve polished so far.

The second one here (where J-F comes up and sees the treasure), has been changed. The original block-in simply didn’t work well with the skinned character. Shoulders and elbows were all over the place, and since we’re short on time the necessary corrective blendshapes for that particular animation are of low priority right now. That said, I think that this is a better choice regardless. It’s snappier, he sees the treasure quicker and leaves more time for anticipation in the beginning and for more reaction-time at the end. “Less is more”, “Kill your darlings”, “KISS”, etc

The plan now is to get the rest of the shots polished before milestone 3 next monday. After that, I’ll try to do a second polish on as many shots as I can. We don’t have much time left, but some shots will definitely needs a second going over at the very least.

    Looks pretty awesome!

    Hope you can figure out a clever way to render all of this :) I’d really like to see it finished the 24th :)
