Just been working out a setup for ‘replacement’ animation, using 3D objects rather than just textures or 2d. Haven’t seen this in Blender as yet, so hopefully this will be interesting for someone. Anyway here’s a quick demo of the setup/concept.
Obviously the animation is very basic, and only has a few mouth-shapes, but I do love that poppy stop-motion mouth look. I’m looking at using it in a proper project soon (hence the proof of concept).
What do you think?
I’ve posted the files on blendswap, hopefully up soon.
