Halo Grunts - Animation
This morning, we got word from Shaun Escayg, who was involved in an animation project over at CGSociety.org. The short video he pointed us to (5 seconds, about 6 mb) was fantastic - but I didn't want them to suffer from a bandwidth hit if we front-paged this, so we're making the video available here (with Shaun's permission, of course). Feel free to toss your two cents into that thread at CGS... but grab the video from us. (It's available in its original H.264-encoded QuickTime (5.5 mb), as well as a Sorenson3-encoded QuickTime (3.9 mb) and a WMP9 version (5.7 mb).) It's not long, and it has no sound - but the grunts are GORGEOUS. Model was done by Ben Falcone, animation by Shaun Escayg, and rigging by Mikkel Grosland (with Anna Terekhova supplying the Needler model). Amazing work. Grab a copy! (Louis Wu 19:31:37 UTC)
