A2 MILK™ – Final Shot Animation

A2MilkBanner2

This animation was actually a last minute thought by me and Nick as we thought it would be quite humorous but the actual idea was spawned from a test image I made earlier in development.

The Animation



The actual animation isn’t detailed in its execution as it is just the character rising from behind the table, but there was some props involved which were not in the other animations, one being the carton shown in fig 1.

I was lucky enough to actually find a laid out carton texture online which I could use to texture my model .

Fig 5:  The texture map

Fig 5 show the texture map that I created using unwrapped carton texture I found online but I also modified it to not have the seam lines and just generally cleaned up the material.

In the scene there was also a table cloth, which was actually made by creating a plane, adding lots of edge loops and then using a Maya plugin called Ncloth to simulate a cloth over a table. The plane was covered in a free repeatable texture of a table cloth which I placed over the plane’s UV.

Finally I moved some of the scenery to make a new looking scene for the kid to pop up from and with that and with the very basic added animation done, I added a little smile at the end to finish it up.
