For our third assignment, we were to make a simple animation in Unreal game engine.
I partnered with Alexandra for this project. We started with making the character in Adobe fuse. The character is set in a T pose by default.
The character was then imported to Mixamo for rigging and animation. We arrived at the following animations to export to unreal.
So the idea is that the character walks toward the spiral stairway like a zombie, runs up the stairway, all the way to the top of the tower, does a little Macarena dance and trips and falls to a gory death.
Shown below is an unfinished movie, previously we got the character to run all the way up the stairway but then the software crashed. On reopening the software, we chose ‘restore files’ when asked, but it somehow opened the very first iteration of the video. Turns out we had lost all saved progress. We have re-started the video and should complete it within this week.
Update: Finally managed to recreate the scene all over again and animate the character and camera. video below.
