With less than 48 hours before the competition closes i decided to challenge myself to try to create another animation entry into the contest :Will i be able to do it lets see.....
This time we recreate the scatman song with the following lyrics:
Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact, I don't let nothin' hold you back
If the Scatman can do it, so can you
Everybody's sayin' that the Scatman stuttersBut doesn't ever stutter when he singsBut what you don't know, I'm gonna tell you right nowThat the stutter and the scat is the same thingYo, I'm the ScatmanWhere's the Scatman?I'm the Scatman
Steps to creations:
Step1- Create a Metahuman that resembles the scatman
This step was straight forward as per all my other entries just try to match the Image to Scat man as best as i could making sure to get his Moustache.
I then set up two lights in Ue4 behind and in front of the characther and made the scene black and white with a Vignette effect to give it an old look.
Perfect Scene set up now for animations...
Step 2- Create the Viseme track using Acculips
This took me about 2 hours to do...
Once these were created i basically just did a live link directly and recorded using take recorder in unreal engine...
I then just used the movie render que to render out the scene and Viola in less than 6hours i manage to do it
1 hour- Create metahuman
1-hour set up lighting and scene cameras
2 hours- use acculips and correct all visemes and add few facial emotes via keyframing
1 hour -render out scene and compile video
1 hour- Upload to Youtube and contest page and update WIP thread
