the only wonder is why its taken someone so long to dream up!
I'm a bit surprised it's apparently easier to sculpt a model rather than take a 3D scan of a cow. Or maybe the sculpture is based on a scan?
Cows don't look like cows when 3D scanned. You gotta use horses.
Might cool. Than fancy stuff you see in the animate-step, is that actually something animators use, or is it just cool-looking eye candy a la hacker screens on TV?
Yes, but it's been rendered to make it look extra cool. For real animation rigging see: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=maya+rigging
The sculpting stage is a joke, it was probably made in something like zbrush http://youtu.be/3ffwxDte4-4
Thanks! The (funny) sculpting stage joke is actually what made me wonder whether the animation stage was accurate.
Is the perversity of the "Colour correct" transformation sweeping across an 8-bit GIF... wonderful? Oh. No, that's right. Just depressing.
MNG/APNG. The bungling of HTML5 video. Hooray for the Web.
It just proves that 8 bits was totally good enough all along.
Was the mangled URL a deliberate retort?
I was kinda expecting one of those trick GIFs where they abuse animation and transparency to load thousands of colours into a single image (each frame can have a separate palette and the spec doesn't say that pixels left over from a previous frame should obey the new palette...).
