Finally finished the bedroom interior animation.I decided to try out the viewport 2.0 renderer and it doesn't look that bad.Renders way faster than Mental ray(within 3 minutes).
U can watch it here-[link]
An update on 13 vs 7-[link]
Playing around with Blenders game engine(BGE) and using animation sets assigned to keyboard/mouse controls like a controller pad to animate Cloud and the camera in realtime.Still need to create more fighting animation sets.I am experimenting with this approach to see if animation can be done faster and easier.I thought of approaching it this way after watching the sourcefilmmaker intro video.
With this approach,u can easily change things on the fly and re-record ur animations.Its just like the characters are actors in real life and u are in control of the camera.
Will be working on more animations.Take care.
