Sorry it’s been so long since any updates and posts on my site! As most of you know, I’ve been very busy for the past three years as Head of Character Animation on Dreamwork’s Megamind
. It was quite an exciting and amazing journey, but VERY very very busy!
Once the movie finished, I immediately started working on the short “The Button of Doom” which released with the DVD a few weeks ago.
After that I took a really lovely 3 weeks off to just relax with the family, and then came back to work as a supervising animator on another short that will be released sometime soon hopefully!
In addition to that, I’m working on some new technology at work, AND getting ready to head up the animation for another film at dreamworks that comes out in a few years.
So yeah, I’ve been busy! 🙂
Anyway, back to the Animator Friendly Rigging series! I’ve had a number of requests to find out whether or not the series works with Maya 2011. I’ve started working through it to see where the issues are, and one of the first ones I’ve resolved is a quick fix to the js_createTwistySegmentUI.mel script to make sure that the WorldScale Enable/Disable checkbox works correctly.
You can download it here: js_createTwistySegmentUI
I’m hoping to start blogging again a bit more regularly.. I apologize for slacking so hard! 🙂
