Unit 11: Major Project - "& Son" Last Minute Shot Fixes

Hello Everyone,

Here is a sample extract from my latest contribution (08/05/14) direct from Polydoodle Pictures Studio Blog. The animated gifs below show some of the fixes done to Benjamins eye blink which was distorting the mesh. There is a fault in the characters blend shapes causing the brows to move when we need him to blink with sad eyes. Let it be a tip for everyone out there to be careful when making blendshapes... Try to do everything seperate.


"The images above show Benjamin's head with a Black Hole mask which Sammy asked Stitch to render out as Benjamin's eyes were cutting through his blink cycle. The problem with doing this is it impacts the eyebrows which sadly is a fault in the facial Blend-shapes of the Benjamin rig. We will probably look into this before New Designers to possibly make a sad facial emote that doesn't impact anything but the eyes."
