~Skye Walker~

My 1st try with Skye, a cartoonish female figure from 3D Universe! First thing I had to do is to remove her joint limits because they are too restricted. She basically has no body morphs, and her face cannot be customized to create new characters, but still not bad for only $10. Skye ships with this bikini, short hair, textures, and make ups, so I think it's a great value for the money.

Creating this animation took me longer than usual because this is a new figure I am not familiar with, and also because I redid the animation several times until I decided what kind of motions I wanted. Keyframing the chest bounces by hand was painful as usual, but I think Skye deserves to have it. ;p

Figure is Skye by 3D Universe. Keyframed animation and rendering done in Poser8. Final compression and compositing in Flash CS. Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

Thank you! It was an attempt to add bounce with traditional keyframing. Poser didn't support soft body dynamics way back then. ^^

I am still not sure if softbody dynamics are worth the trouble because you can't control the animation the exact way you want because... it's dynamic. ;p

depends on the situation... softbody would probably
fall apart for something like Katena's obsession.

It's kinda sensitive to hard shaking. Conversely, manual keyframing gets precise animations but it takes forever. ;p

Great walk cycle and great work on the bounce. I too wish that poser would, by now, have soft body dynamics. Ah well....

Thank you! Looks like Carrara 8 will be shipping with the Bullet physics engine built-in when it comes out. That will allow for real-time dynamics on light geometry, which can help a lot with dynamics automation in animations. ^^

Thanks, I think that walking with stiff arms like that gives her a fashion model look, and the bounce came as an extra that is hard to ignore. ;)
