Progress, finally!

Hey guys guess what!?! I finally managed to animate, render, and create a movie! These are the "opening credits" for my animation. Parts of it are still jumpy and it is by no means perfect but it definitely made me smile to watch it, especially when I added the goofy music (yay for apple loops!). Just some advice in terms of key framing. It's definitely way harder to go back and key frames once you've done several after them. So, I suggest playing your animation in Maya every few key frames to make sure it is going the way you want it. In order to see it play through the camera view you have to have only that screen open, then you can just press play on the little timeline near where you see where each key frame is. It will play slower than normal here but at least you can get a feel for how the camera will move between key frames. Can't wait to see what everyone else has done!
