Disco Krang is so happy, that is IT for Principle photography on 'A Thing About Rats'.

Got act three done in a little under two weeks.

Now it's simply a matter of working on about 45 fixup shots all next week and this grand finale is done.

a nice celebration of the shows 30th anniversary this year.

act three fixups should be finished tomorrow if the schedule keeps. about 30 done in two days.

hoping to have the whole thing done by wensday. will sit on it a few days, and if nothing else bugs me much between now and saturday, will post a final upload...and then start the much slower pace on the big rip off remix.

I will be creating a new portal room for that one, a new rocksteady (this one was modeled after season 1 version), and a new transport module, since those are now the oldest models from the last 6 years. everything else will stay the same from the previous rats project. as will vernon and the turtle van and news van. all the minor characters like army guys, scientists, and sets will get new from scratch.

and that really will be it for COMPLETE episodes. just to keep busy, I might do short scenes from shows that could use an animation upgrade...like Ice Creature Cometh, or Hot Rodding Teenagers From Dimension X. but complete shows are just too much work.

Principal photography should be finished today.


I fixed just about every minor thing that bugged me. will let it sit for a few days and a few watches later to see if i feel anything else needs fixing or improving to my current ability to do so, and will give a final upload saturday.

I will say this. after doing four episodes by myself, i am no longer as critical of animation errors or mistakes as I used to be. even with a team of 50 or more people working on a project, i can see how things get ignored or dropped or forgotten about now. and even perfectionists can't get things right 100% of the time, especially with budget constraints.

I'd like to think i'm getting better. or at least less sucky than when i started out...but i tend to find modelling a bit more fun than animation.

All the big issues are fixed. all the continuity issues are fixed. all the animation issues are fixed.

just a matter of how much i let the remaining lip synch issues bug me.
and it's all but done.

Final upload coming saturday night.

if i redo a big rip off just to have three good looking consecutive episodes done..
it all depends on how good i can make all the old elements look this time around. before anything gets started, i will have fun trying to recreate those sets and extra characters.

if we can make extra elements look better than they did then, big rip off gets redone.

This is precisely why i want to redo at least a Big Rip Off, because it is now the oldest one in my repitoire.

June 2014 Versus March 2017.

The new set, while still not great yet with colors, is MUCH more stream lined and much more properly setup based on all i learned on setting up shots. things are not as bunched together and somehow i made the placement all work with the show placement, when animators of the day where not concerned about such things as set continuity.

Most of the elements for act one are done. I've just got the outside power plant sets...One Building, Two robots, a main room, and about ten extra characters remain.

I really enjoyed the season 1 episode done in CG. It felt very smooth and neat all the way through so thanks
