Assignment #5

Here is a link to the animation I designed for assignment five, and here is a link to the .max file.

After some thought, I decided that the Kinetic Sculpture assignment would be the most fun (and the least tedious) to do. My goal for this project was to make some of the sculptures I made in assignment #2 appear to interact with one another, whilst moving around and acting alive.

At first, I had difficulty aligning all of my keyframes; some of the ones that I added would activate earlier than when they were supposed to. I eventually found that I had to duplicate all the earliest keyframes and drag them further along the timebar, so that they could prevent some of the later ones from activating too soon.
