small sequence of animation, WIP
show user profile  ravihara
hi everyone.
this is my first attempt to do human animation and interaction with 3dsmax biped. all the models are created by me from the scratch. currently, i'm just finishing off the cloth animation on the characters.
next, have to concentrate on adding armor and facial animation.

Wow! Apart for the very first steps that look a little awkward (like the weight is moving sideways), it looks great!!

If you work on the run-cycle it'll be brilliant. Right now it's only very, very good. I think, the main problem is the arms. The left arm carrying the shield has no weight i.e. it looks like the shield weighs less than a piece of paper. I think if you reduced the swing and rotation arcs it will help (plus a warrior would be trained to keep it as poised as possible). The right arm, again, has no weight. If you look carefully there's no follow-through animation, it just moves directly back then forth without the slightest pause. If you rotate the wrist slightly at the end of each arc it will give the impression that the sword is made of heavy metal or steel.

Another small tweak might be to reduce the sway of the shoulders as running with that much swing would not be helpful if you're lining up for an attack.

But, to reiterate, the animations where the warrior attacks the other soldiers are brilliant.
