Well, that tears it. Now any talented amateur can make something like Star Wars: Episode III or Avatar. If piracy doesn't kill the big movie studios, a glut of faster, cheaper, better competition oughta do it. smiley

The problem is that this creatures are not very good actors... it's difficult to make them obey, they seem to only follow their own fractal behavior grin

Great job Kali
Very beautiful in its own way, nice color and lighting and very nice movement, even if the beasts are not yet well trained and do not listen to orders (or algorithems) well

Crazy creature, Kali. Maybe useful as background actor.  shocked
Did you use the fractal movement pattern, you introduced wth trees moving in the wind?
Looks unpredictable.

Thanks for the comments!

@Torsten: yes, is even basically the same script, without the folds that make the trees. The problem with the mirroring is that it constrains the amplitude and direction of the movements, because the branches trespassing the symmetry line disappears. So I wanted to see how the trunk moves alone, with more amplitude and freedom, and this is the result.

The obeying issue should be easy to fix. You could combine the fractal motion by blending it with inverse kinematics or something, smoothly interpolating between the two... - maybe even non-uniformly, so that the tip of the arm gets full inverse-kinematics weigth, if that makes any sense. You could make a worm that precisely points into one direction while still randomly and fractally rotating around that pointing goal.

I have run into the fold problem too (not enough room to move around). Like in your octopus animation it would be nice to use a kaleidoscope fold for the eight legs but that leaves very little room to move. Unless someone can come up with a way to dynamically rotate the folds - like a spiral fold.

Great stuff your coming up with!
