    My new toon relies heavily on 3D

    Hey all, thought I'd post my new Flash-animated cartoon here, as it relies very heavily on Swift 3D. I used Max to create several backgrounds, tracking shots, and even characters in this toon. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks a lot

    Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Most of the first half was done within Swift 3D V2, and then I upgraded to 3ds Max with the Swift 3D plugin for the second half.

    It's pretty cool man. The voices are done rather well - one of the best parts imho; however there's this weird unfocus/focus (anti-aliasing goes on the fritz) thing going on right before they speak. I could never tell if that was intentional.

    Sometimes, the background textures were great. But in one one sequence - IIRC the hero was in a jail or room with greyish walls - the textures were quickly repeated and not up to par with just a few minutes earlier in animation.

    but... I'm not a fan of the trees in the beginning. but bacon trees... that's funny as hell.

    I do have to ask why not Flash instead of Quicktime - output of tool perhaps?

    Overall, it's not bad. I had to start looking, of course automatically for the Swift3D elements, and the good part is that they're there, but don't pop out as readily as I would have originally thought. You can tell they're there, but they're well-done. And to me, that's a good thing. But you can tell that the latter part of the animation was done last... it has a bit of more polish than the earlier minutes.

    Overall, I like it, but yeah... I downloaded it for later perusal because of it's length.

    I know, I know... people say stuffs too short normally. But this is a movie, so it's not a complaint, but merely an observation.
