The "Real-Time Character Animation" video tutorial is up on design3.
Real-Time Character Animation teaches you expert techniques used by professional animators. Working in Softimage with a character and animations from the Source engine video game, Counter Strike, you’ll learn how to blend different poses and motions together in order to create new animation sequences. Then use customized parameters to develop the controls and organization necessary to work with the animation sequences. Using device capture you’ll be able to link your mouse movements to the character animation controls and essentially turn your mouse into a motion capture tool. Finally, you’ll see how to create real-time shadows from the character model geometry.
Check out the "Source Creature Rigging" video tutorial on design3.
Working in Softimage, you’ll start with the basics of bones, joints, and hierarchies as you set up an animation rig for a biped skeleton character. Then learn how to create a shadow rig and envelope the character model to it. Next, you’ll see the character guides and rigs that are already included in Softimage and learn how to modify them to fit your own needs. Finally, you’ll go through the entire process of creating a skeletal rig for a quadruped dragon character, ready to export to the Source engine.
