Character Design and Creation ● Motion: Can the character squash and stretch beyond the boundaries of what a real skeletal structure would allow? How much? Must it obey the laws of motion of a physical character? You can mix things up to achieve the appropriate level of realism and stylization for your project. 3), you will see that although there is a fair amount of detail in the models, the proportions have been altered from the human ideal, and the materials are very simple. While the character of the mother obeys normal laws of motion and structure, the Beast has the ability to squash and stretch to emphasize his level of babyhood chubbiness and flexibility.

43) the different elements of the Sequencer Image Strip while it is being moved: ● ● ● The numbers on either end of the strip indicate the start and end frames the strip would have if you accepted the current transformation. The first number inside the body of the strip indicates how many images (your storyboards) are contained in the strip. 43 An Image Strip in transform mode Move the strip until the indicator for the start frame is 1, meaning that the sequence of images will begin on frame 1 of the animation.

In fact, it is a “built-in” level of detail system. Level of detail refers to rendering models at varying levels of complexity depending on how much of the rendered frame they occupy. If the Beast were to appear far in the background, taking up less than, say, 20 pixels from top to bottom in the final render, there would be no reason to enable the subsurface modifier. 14 A close-up of the Beast with two levels of subsurfacing render time. We’ll revisit this sort of optimization in Chapter 15 when we look at rendering and compositing, but the strategy begins at modeling time.
