I've made this animation in 1999 for a government TV ad which was broadcasted in my state here in Brazil (Sergipe). For the 3D rendering I've used Lightwave 3D, without any bones or traditional morphs whatsoever. Instead, I've employed SockMonkey for the joints deformations - which allowed for much better visual feedback, considering the slow performance of the machines of the time - and the LipService plugin. LipService allowed (and still allows) for very smooth non-linear morphing which preserves volume very well, and it also worked fine with SockMonkey. Another curiosity is that I've used no IK whatsoever, I had to "pin" down the feet manually, animating on ones (frame by frame). For the keying mask I've used Elastic Reality, morphing the mask on 60 fps - a lot of work - and After Effects for comping and color matching. Considering the strong limitations of those days tools and equipment, and my own lack of deeper knowledge about animation (which shows), I'm very proud of the final result. Sorry for the low image quality, it's the only copy I've got and it's actually amazing that I still have any, I've lost many similar "relics" :)
