4+ days of 24/7 rendering but it's finally done!
Othello: An Excerpt from the play by William Shakespeare
See it on Vimeo!
Get the face rig responsible for it all! Othello face rig V2-CTRLS.blend
Methinks the fellow doth promoteth too much
The rig is version 2, with a full set of controls. It's not been exhaustively tested (that's what the Blender community's for, right? ) but I've put it through a fair set of paces. It works in 2.50a2 as well, though I haven't used it much in that version yet, just a quick test drive of the main controls.
Two text files in the .blend tell more than you prob'ly want to know about the rig.
The downloadable .avi uses the Xvid codec, so you'll need that for viewing (you should have it anyway, it's sweet & Open Source & everything). Also, I've found that Virtual Dub (which I used for multiplexing the audio & video) is also a great viewer app -- gives much better picture quality than any other viewer I've ever used, besides being a major player in my production toolbox. Much better that VLC for playblast reviews during animation, and it can play back sound, unlike the Blender internal player. Also Open Source. Go get it.
The d/l vid is full size (720x480) and plays back a lot smoother than Vimeo, so it's the best venue for seeing all that Blender can do.
Hope you like
