Using a displacement map to make a walking creature

Animation: http://queatz.com/files/dispture.avi (544kb avi because Blender crashed on all other formats)
Blend: http://queatz.com/files/dispture.blend

Watched the video. Nice effect! Sort of like a soft body thing. Very aquatic. What are your plans for it? Just an experiment?

Yeah just an experiment. Was playing with it and thought I’d render it out. :eyebrowlift2:

This is a cool looking start. I’d like to see this refined a bit, but slow down the animation. Also If you render our as a sequence of PNGs or JPEGs then make a movie out of them it takes a lot of strain off of Blender.

Definitely a cool idea. I think I will play around with it a bit.

wow, really neat technique, animation was a bit fuzzy, too dark and too fast but refining this could make some really cool things.
