Procedural Animation (UM3PAN101) – Rigging Character in Unreal

This was so cool. I love the rigging of the character in Unreal. I never seen anything like this before. This makes everything so much easier when you make your own models. I have not used Unreal for so long, and I am really surprised on how powerful the engine is. You can make a good side scroller prototype in only hours. The templates are also nice, this saves hours in normal set up.

I wonder if Unity have the same….

So far really happy with what we have gone true. I really like how easy the tutorials are to follow online, because I can press pause and start all the time, this lets me do it step by step. Because of how many times I did press stop I am happy I did not have this on campus, that would make this much harder, but at the same time you then have time to work on it after the lecture.

 
 

Procedural Animation (UM3PAN101) – Responsibility

I been away from lectures and meetings for a week, something I inform my group about, they were good sport about it. This meant that the modeling was given to someone else. But I think I will do the texturing for the character. We will talk about that in the next meeting. I see we have fallen a bit behind on our work, something I hope we will manage to change together now the next week.

We have been told to post a picture of character and environment on Moodle, no one has taken the responsibility to do that. We are a group with so many people, and someone should have stepped up. I feel it is needed that I post a picture, and I feel I need to do that today. Unfortunately, I don’t have all the answers, so I’ll wait until Monday. Then the group have a meeting and we will need to sit down and answer the questions and send a reply.

2 hours later:

I got a reply from the group and posted the pictures on Moodle, and this on a Sunday evening, that was great. Feels much better right away.

Here are the character sketch made by Mats.

Studio3 (UM3ST3351) – Planning week

First week is over, we wrote a game document and I put up a Mood Board template I made quick before we all jumped in and filled in the pictures.

We have started to make the character and will have a sketch done by the end of today. The same with an environment sketch. We did have a talk and I will start to model the character first thing when the sketch is done, I will also do the texturing. Depending on my time I will see if I can make the textures in Substance Painter or if I’ll take them in Photoshop.

We are on to a good start, and I really like the style we use. This is an exciting assignment. I also really like how our group works, first time on a small group with campus and online student. I really like how that work out for us so far.

Procedural Animation (UM3PAN101) – New Group

I chose to be in group 3, I have seen the work of the people in the group before, and felt that would be a nice experience to work with this group.

We had our first meeting yesterday, and had some issues with the sound in the conversations, because the campus students had only a phone. But I was impressed when they said they would fix something that meetings better for all of us. That was nice to feel they gave an effort to get good communication between us.

I made a google drive folder for our work, and a document for contact info / ideas. Beside that the first day will be most about getting the group and making a connection.
