In the last weekly you got a glimpse of Hjalti‘s first lipsyncing test of Victor’s new rig. Some of you wanted to know how long this shot took him to animate. The answer is approximately 2.5 days. Obviously, initial tests like this take a little longer as Hjalti learns about the rig and consults with Mathieu and others about the direction of the character, but there are also many steps between reference material and final animation. Thankfully, Hjalti’s been kind enough to record each animation iteration, plus the actor reference he used, so that we can string them together here (in the video below) to show you how a lipsync evolves.
Edit: Final render updated (with sound!) February 4.
