project overview and involvement

Title: 3D Artist and Animator

Location: Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (Orlando, Florida)

Dates: 9/2007-1/2009

While I worked at NAWCTSD I was tasked to design a soft skills trainer based on a current trainer that used live action videos. The scenes from the live action video where broken down and recreated in a 3d movie making program called iClone.  The project was used as a test to see if training value was compromised with 3d avatars vs live action actors. Adobe Director was used to drive the finished trainer

Heavy use of key frame animation and cleaning of motion capture data was used for this project. Character rigging and facial animations timed to prerecorded dialog was used to animate the scene.
