Shot Progress - Spline Pass
I have now completed the spline pass of my new shot! Yay! This includes my first pass of lipsync and facial animation.
When I convert a shot to spline my main goal is to get everything smooth and retain the snappiness of the blocking. So I try to look for places where I can add a bit more zest into the spacing which really adds some texture to the shot. I think this can be seen best when she says "Fight" for the first time near the start.
My next pass will be polish where I will first go through the fingers and really clean those up and get them to interact with each other nicely throughout. I will also track everything and try and get the spacing to be really tight and not get even at all anywhere within the shot.
So stay tuned... polish pass is coming up soon!
