As you may have seen, we have recently posted a new animation dedicated to NICKMERCS; this features a Spartan walking down a corridor, picking up his sword, and preparing for battle. Not only are our animations butter-smooth (thank you to Vikas and his team, as well as our brand new Xsens suit!), we have now learned the art of cloth simulation.
A glaringly obvious example of this is the cloak that sways as the Centurion walks. For our eagle-eyed viewers, you can also see the leather skirt shift with his body too. We’re hoping that with this small improvement, our characters feel more alive than before.
Perhaps in the future, we will be able to have the same level of simulations like that of Disney and Pixar? We can only hope, and see what the future holds for Futhark Studios.
