2nd Edit and New Animation Storyboard[youtube.com/watch?v=d8LpHdtOV0I]
Having completed the first edit for the 3D Animation I looked at how it could be improved.
I’ve already mentioned that I felt it needed a water splashing effect as the character falls into the water and so I’ve added this into the modified Storyboard.
I also realised that I needed to redo some of the animation sequences that I’d exported from Maya, in particular the sequence where the character turns to face the audience just before falling into the water. Also the animation sequence involving new water splashing effects, making changes to the arm movements and the bobbing of the character up and down in sync with the splashing water movement.
As I mentioned in a previous blog I filmed actual objects dropping into water to use for the water splashing scene but decided to go with the water effect created in After Effects as it suited the design better.
