I agree, like the video but the music is complete garbage and kind of irritating. We have IQ's over 50 so what is this music I don't even..

Yeah, the music is hurting. Can only hope that it was just for the video and not the game.

What poor song choice for the video, haha.
Nice animations though

Who cares about the music? You should just focus on what the video is really about instead...

LOL! You guys are a hoot -- I wanted to put a random song that doesn't relate to classical music! I updated it to something more -- Suitable. =) Enjoy

Oh, yea... I can see why that may have grated on people. New music is beautiful btw, and the animations look great.

Damn though, 30 days? Not long to wait then...

In times of motion-capture keyframe animations on characters look odd. The animations are quite good, but why don't you buy 2x5 sec of motion capture and save yourself from 20 hour+ nights of shifting arms back and forth?

Here are a couple of reasons:
1. I just started animating for the first time last month, I will get faster as time goes on.
2. When key-framing, you become one with the characters movements, meaning each and every movement you make will project you're own emotions as an artist.
3. Encore! will eventually have cinematic sequences, if mo-cap was going to be our prime method all of our characters are just going to look plain silly.

Animation is time consuming, but just imagine being able to control each and every movement of the characters you love.

You only started animating last month?! That's insane; those animations are really good! Very smooth :)
I can't wait to see this project further develop!

You'll just be spending 20+ hours cleaning up mo-cap data instead.

Well I like it a bit, but it's not as good composed as one could've hoped for, for a game centered around music. The piano is kinda annoying at some times, maybe it's all too jazzy (not that I don't like jazz, it just doesn't fit) making it all a compilation of various genres

I like it when it's just classical, that's the best imho
