Here is something which I am working on from some time with Joe Alter ,its still in progress but thought is good for sharing. LBrush is a plugin for Maya which really do magical stuff, I literally mean MAGIC . From the time I have started using it my mind is fully blown by its versatility in pipeline. The major module of it PSD (Pose Space Deformation) take care of every rigger bad dream which is the Ugly Deformation. The best part is all this thing which lbrush do can be done on a high subdivision level which mean you can sculpt even the detail like vein with full control over it, Lbrush handle these subdivision AWSUMLY. Do check the LBrush site for more detail on it I am kinda less in words to describe its AWSUMNESS :D.
Will keep on updating about it.
Got this very Good article from AWN. Its bit old but really gud 1.
Dialogue can be the trickiest part of a script. Lucky for us, Jean Ann Wright continues her series of articles on writing for television animation and this month tells us how to tame the words of animated actors.
The Purpose of Dialogue
When Batman kicks butt, he doesn't need a lot of dialogue to dump the dumbdumbs. At its best animation is all about action and movement; it explores space and time. You want to show, not tell, your story. There are cartoons with no dialogue at all! But three dialogue blocks per page and no more than three short sentences per block are normal. Generally, in animation dialogue should be used only after you've tried all other methods of communication. Silence can accompany discoveries, revelations and deep emotions. Dialogue is used to reveal the characters. It provides direction, moving the story along and advancing the plot. It discloses information. It provides conflict. And it sets the spirit or mood of the story, whether it's a comedy or drama.
