Ball lift 3D view

Right here's a cool thing. on Vimeo has used one of my animations within a 3D video environment! I think this looks really smart, and a clever piece of kit. Anyhow take a look here, it's a bit like playing where's Wally, but with Alfred instead! Just use the mouse clicking on screen to move the camera around. 3D video link

BBC Reference Footage Wolf Run

Hi, been working on a new wolf run trying to use some reference material from the BBC Motion Gallery, an amazing site that is FREE too for all you animators out there!

Latest wolf run, with more extension on hind legs. Struggling with the rig here as it deform, otherwise I'd like to work on the rear legs more. Credit to Drew Vaughan who built the rig!

So here's the basic wolf run cycle, I think the footage is running slightly slower than real time as the cycle seems to be about 16 frames and also annoyingly you can't see the wolf's feet on the Beeb footage. Anyhow here's my effort with background:-
