Psst. Hey, pal. Try the Animation forum. B^P

Buuut.... as long as the question is here, the MAX assignment is more of a cool (albeit tough) chance at your very own copy of MAX. Mmmm.... Polygonalicious.... What you have to do is create a story around what FIRST means to your team, then turn that story into a 30 second animation.

For animation tips and tricks give the Animation forum on Chief Delphi a try, or even FIRSTanimators by sending an email to me, so I can signs yous up, or email firstanimators-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

There ya go. Hope that helps some. Oh, and my input? I think it's a good idea. It gives the animation teams a focus, rather than just creating a hodge-podge animation. Most animators do not agree from what I've seen, as they claim it makes it to restrictive. now let me get all grandpa on you all

<grandpa>Ooh, sonny, back in my day, there were 3 animators on the team, and 2 of dem were just cheering the 3rd on. With this here new-fangled racken fracken story focus, I've created 8 stories between two separate teams I'm helping. All unique, creative, and staying on focus. So take them mash taters and stick em in your long johns!</grandpa>

Ah, the wacky mind of an animator. Gosh help us all, every one.

Good luck and happy animating!
