Vehicle-Terrain Interaction Demonstration

Vehicle-Terrain Interaction Demonstration from Suchan Bajracharya on Vimeo.

A quick video on using Closest Point constraint for vehicle real-time wheel-terrain interaction from one of my classes at Puppeteer Lounge.

P.S. the suspension and lot of the vehicle rigs are going all over the place at the moment, don't worry, this is a work in progress file and I just scrubbed through the timeline with dynamics enabled.

Facial Muscle Setup Progress

Facial muscle setup in progress snap from Puppeteer Lounge's Training Workshops "Rigging Workshop 3 - Hyper Real Character Setup".

"The facial muscles are a group of striated skeletal muscles innervated by the facial nerve that control facial expression. The facial muscles originate from the surface of the skull bone, and insert on the skin of the face. When they contract, the skin moves. These muscles also cause wrinkles."

Hyper Real Facial Setup Demonstration

Hyper Real Facial Setup Demonstration from Puppeteer Lounge on Vimeo.

Here is a quick video demonstration showcasing the facial rig that I created and taught to students for Puppeteer Lounge's Hyper Real Facial Setup training workshop. The rig features a combination of musculo-skeletal deformation and corrective shapes. You can also see the rig being driven by the facial motion capture performance which is covered in Puppeteer Lounge's Facial Motion Capture Setup workshop.
