I really like it!

Question: Isn't it harder to work with viewport manipulators than with a scripted interface (window with all the controls on it)?

Your other fish on youtube looks good also.

Are you using bones for the face?

Thanx everybody.

Nik:I made a floating UI using maxscript for the Nemo fish. I can use either one.

just morph targets for the expressions and bones for fins and head/jaw.and I used the Tentacle script on the fin bones for auto-like swim control.

Next model I make I'm gonna use splines as bones in the face and have 100% control.

If I can figure a way to make the vertices from the splines into dummys...I will be happier than a shithouse rat.....or is that crazy like one?
found a way to link to the vertices...which is all I need!

Thanx for the headsup about cgsociety...I'll keep an eye out.

nice. I suppose you could get a set of physical sliders (midi controlled or something) to animate more easily ?

advance....never thought of that...might try it.

I just wish youtube didn't compress these vids so much....quality is better on my end.

working on Megamind main blue character now.

posting this vid too cause I think it turned out cool:
