March of the pants

It’s our first animation test!

This one is the brainchild of Jasper Hesseling, who’s been tasked with finishing the clothing/detail modeling of the main characters. To see how his baggy pants geometry would deform while in motion, he set up this quick animation test.

The results were better than we’d been expecting. Jasper’s inventive use of the jiggle deformer gives the pants a loose, jaunty sway, but without having to do any tedious cloth simulation.

Looks like a winner!
