Sorry for the delay, pretty busy here at work essentially rebuilding some big pipeline tools, systems etc etc.
First up I’ve got a new idea for an animation controller which I’m sort of keeping under wraps. Basically rigs are hooked together by controllers which are animated, problem is most of these tend to be custom – what im planning is a very basic controller that does advanced transforms very well – on top of this customly defined controls can be added on top – which get sort of ‘wired’ into the system.
Secondly I’ve been trying to explain (hopefully) transforms over at CGTalk. A transform is basically a direction with a spin projected by an offset about a coordinate system. Now this sounds a little complex so over the next few posts i’ll explain them a little bit better hopefully with some interesting examples.
