Sodastream – Snowball Studios
Paul Neale worked with Snowball Studios on the Sodastream commercial creating the character rigs for the Seagull, Turtle and Seal characters. Deformations were handled with 3DS Max’s Skin modifier plus the Data Channel modifier with Delta Mush and Tension Deform.
For speed of animation the characters were equipped with the custom Pose Saver tool set for storing the most used poses.
All modeling, animation, texturing, rendering and other aspects of the production were handled by Snowball Studios.
For over 2 decades, I have been recognized internationally by the 3D animation industry as technical director and rigging specialist for clients worldwide, my work spans feature films, TV series, AAA game titles, broadcast television, aerospace, medical and tools and pipeline development.
