Greebo put his conversation video there too.

 

Hmm, not sure what the difference was, but I didn't need a password for greebo's.

 

Anyway, I think the animation has potential, but it would look a lot more convincing if the belt actually moved to some degree. I know it's rigged to the hips, but could you jiggle it up and down or something to simulate being adjusted?

Moving the belt without the rest of the hip area is impossible, we have no bones for that.

 

If I were doing this I might hide the fact that the belt can't move by having minimal movement in the hands once they hold it, and have him focus his movement on shifting his hips around, maybe twisting left to right a bit.

I rotated the hip. Legs of course moved with it so I had to adjust their position on each frame manually (I did that before anyway).

 

Looks a bit better, but the stretching caused by the rotating looks worse than no movement to my eyes. Maybe make it rotate not that much? (Sorry for nitpicking :)

For the moment, just add it to the proguard. Greebo and I are still sorting out how we want to handle the other characters.

Some more shifting from one leg to another, this time shorter.

I also added footstep sounds to shifting1 and adjusting_belt_animations.

 

Nice :)

 

But why does it look like he has black thumbs?

      Sometimes life throws a curveball - other times it straight up tries to take you outta the game. Been one thing after another lately but I ain't goin without a fight!

      My Uber rating (as a passenger) is 4.71. Is there still hope or should I just kill myself? What's yours?

      Did I mention how absolutely grateful I am that TDM didn't get (and can never be) assimilated by a huge company like Microsoft, as is what happened to Minecraft?
