I have to say that's absolutely amazing stuff. I'm really curious how you managed to chose the parameters for your sine functions. Do you have an editor or something? And more to the point, how many hours did you save by not having to use Character studio ;)

Anyway, keep up the good work.

It look's very good from the pic. I also first used simple sin functions on my character animations (This involved a _lot_ of trial and error to get something that looked normal :). But I'm now using splines for movement because they allow finner control and are easier for movement in more than 2 axis'.

Yep, nice model! Say, is the "police" tag flipped ?

You should try keyframed motion (Splines), usually easier to edit.

Where can I find info on this type of animation? I haven't been able to find any good info on skeletal animation or anything at all. Thanks.. Nice work BTW.


The word "finished" is the least used term in my vocabulary. While I'm working on implementing code and fixing bugs, Microsoft is working on creating some with the next release of Windows.
