Collaborative Character Animation

In this presentation, Gene Magtoto demonstrates workflow and technical direction tips used by The Sequence Group on cinematics for the video game "Remember Me". Gene demonstrates use of the Reset PSR, Transfer, Naming and Timewarp tools, as well as techniques for locking the camera in a shot using Frozen Transformations. He demonstrates the power of the Layer Manager for group workflows. Gene shows off an awesome joint-based facial rig, and has graciously provided a simpler joint-based face rig for experimentation.
