Please excuse the fact that this is only 3 seconds long. I'll upload a longer version in another post.
So...I manage to get a decent looking render out of Maya, works fine. It's an .avi compressed with DviX. No problems.
I want to shove YouTube. Like...push it. You know, playground styles. I've tried a bunch of times to upload the clip you see above. Apparently, this one was a total fluke, since I tried to upload the same file with more keys. Didn't take. I even had a crack at uploading a simple turntable test of the hand model I did. And that's totally buggered. I don't get it.
If anyone reading this has had similar issues with uploading to YouTube, and has found a solution, please leave me a comment. I'd love to be able to show some of the animation that I've done so far, as well as being able to showcase my models better by including video with images. Bleh. I want to get this sorted so I can show people stuff!
Anywho, I won't go into any details about the character at the moment, since I plan on uploading some renders soon. There are a few little texturing things that I didn't manage to sneak in on time for the project hand in, so I'm still going to be doing some minor tweaks here and there. Expect more in another post...
It's late and I'm pissed off with YouTube, so I'm probably going to go to bed now.
P.S. Why can't you loop a YouTube video? Sheesh.
