Hi Monster Buddies,

This is the final version of my Weight Lift. I have worked very hard on it and put lots of efforts hope you all like it.

Critics and comments welcome!

So how did you all like it? This happened as a result of deleting the parent constraints. I posted this for two reasons:
1. For a joke
2. For a lesson

Whenever we plan out our shots, we should keep in our minds what exactly we need to do. True that animation is an art. Software is nothing to be worried of. But technical stuffs are a bit of a challenge for us (at least as a beginner). The first mistake I did was constraining after I had finished my first pass. The constraints were applied so that the box remained attached to the hands and I could animate the box only and the hands would act accordingly. I should have planned this before to avoid such a problem. But yes, at least I learnt something. If I would have constrained it and then animated, such a thing wouldn't have happened.

I took it as something funny that happened while working seriously. It relaxed my mind.

So, it is not only important to know what exactly to do, but also it is important to know WHAT NOT TO DO.

I will be posting the actual final version of the weight lift in a weeks time as I have to concentrate on the sports assignment which is the final assignment.

Thanks for bearing me! Happy animating!

Ya I am agree. No doubt art is first.....But art can't be acknowledge with sound technical knowledge.
Manu said tht day its good skill possesion for any Animator to have knowledge of Blend parents and other technical aspect of Animation
