Anime Throw Test

New video for AlterChasm!

If you couldn't tell, it's a short test we did to see if we could replicate the dynamic camera movements that are employed in anime in order to amplify certain character's actions. I'm not an anime aficionado, but recently, I developed a new-found appreciation for some visual techniques employed in anime.

For this test, I decided to throw a tennis ball.. Nothing inherently exciting about throwing a tennis ball, but I knew I could use some of the assets from Magic Tennis Ball to make my life easier. And, hey, perhaps you could say the character has taken throwing the magical ball to the next level..?

The test didn't come out quite the way I wanted it to, but the effect is still pretty cool. I initially wanted to make the camera seem like it was moving in and out in real time, but instead, it came out more like stop-and-go type of feel. I think it still feels anime-ish though. It's not perfect, but I think it was a successful test. Hope you like it!
