cmiVFX Releases New Softimage Combat Animation Tra Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

Princeton, NJ (December 19th, 2011) – cmiVFX releases yet ANOTHER bombshell right before the peak of the holiday season! The most infamous animator's dream, Combat Animation, is now tackled by the peoples favorite VFX training company of 2011…  yours truly: cmiVFX!


Short Description - Combat Animation

In this video, we will be exploring the animation of a fight, starting with the basics of human motion. We will be looking first at the anatomy of a punch, working through the different muscle groups and motion through the whole body. As the student of martial arts learns with the first few lessons, the animation student will work the core of the body through the punch, using the whole body to drive the impact. Then, we will move to a part of a fight sequence, using the lower half of the body in a roundhouse kick to the head. You will create the characters yourself, using the Gear animation rigging tools and put them against each other in an unfair fight. We will be exploring the reaction by the opponent as well, animating the impact of the foot. Finally, you the video will demonstrate a fighting attack by a quadruped, with our lioness rig swiping at a stationary ball. This advanced rig was built using the Gear animation system, and is provided with the video.



This video is for everyone interested in ANY type of motion in their projects.  We have designed courseware to span all the software options out there.
