To some of my reviewers: Yes, it's simplistic. Yes, the song is annoying; that's part of the humor. It's a TEST animation that happened to have some comedic value, and its original intent was just to see how well I could make the model move, so don't read too much into it. I'm not aiming for Front Page status with this one.

This was a 3-D animation I did at work to test a character rig. The soldier model will be used in another, much larger project, but I used this to test his movement. My rationale was, "If I can get this soldier to dance the Macarena, I figure I can get him to do whatever I need him to do in the final project."

The test animation was so amusing to me that I decided to synchronize it with the music, and this is the result.

The program I used was 3ds max, in case you're wondering. I know this is stupid and pointless, but that just means it should fit in just fine here. =P

The animation and the 3D was spectacular, it must have taken a lot of effort and talent to pull that off. The soldier's shadow was a plus too, as it matched the person perfectly. All in all, great test animation, at that rate I can't wait for a full 3D submission.

Soldiers doing the Macarena......Not a bad idea :)

Probably one of the better things i've veiwed today, a very nice job with the animation, the movements were smooth and not blocky, very well done.

Not Bad

This wasn't all that bad... Infact the 3-D was pretty cool and all. Not to many folk go for that angle. I think you should try and craft 3-d environments and incorperate a plot or two...Good show...
