Another ruff layout sequence!

November 1st, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well last week was tough. I wasted almost 2 days trying to fix a nasty bug in Maya. Mind you, it’s the first time I meet something that bad (after many years using the program). Anyway, at some point I noticed every scene was opening with error messages. Which is a bad sign. So I did what any sane person would do in this case; I threw the computer out of the… er I mean I nuked the preferences folder and let Maya recreate default ones.

However it did not fix the problem at all. It seems one scene I was working on was “contaminated”, but to make a long story short, I managed to get back on track. As a plus, I now have a script that I just have to run to set my preferences back to the way I like. In case this happens again. *knocks on wood*

But most importantly I’m done with the last (chronologically) sequence of the movie! Now I just have the first sequence left to do. So I’m still on track I guess.

Talking about my short movie, let me answer here some commonly asked questions about it: I would say I’ve been (really) working on it for about 6 month. I hope that I can finish it within an additional year. The movie is supposed to run a bit less than 15 minutes. For now, I would like to keep the story under wraps. So let’s just say it involves a robot and a boy…

And, surprisingly enough, no farting and/or burping animals.
