Laura: Whilst I'm thinking about it, who's animating, and which version of Maya are ye using? (this has probably already been said elsewhere, but this just makes it easier for me to seeee~~)
I'm fairly sure I'm either on 2010 or 2011, just want to make sure we're compatible. :D

James: You should be able to see the diffrence between 2010 and 2011 2011 looks very diffrent thay made it look more modernised and prity looking

Ryan:character animation is being done by karen and karl, lightning is being done by james and i'm doing secondary animation. Karen is using maya 8.5 because her mac isn't compatible with any other versions, i'm using maya 2010 and i think karl is as well but i'm not too sure, but we've been swapping files and all that for a while and everything works fine so we must be compatible.

Karl:yeh im on 10. we should be fine as long as we dont use any new features then go back a version.

James: Lookin good how are you gona doo the eyes?

Me: I am working on that now, was thinking of doing something similar with the nose, so that you can see the main outline of the patch around his eye then need to delete some faces to insert the eye ball.... i think, im not completely sure, need to play around with it a little i think.

James:lol i c so the eye is gona b a ball u might nt have to remove ne faces cos your nt gona notice lol mayb just move some of them back a bit or something lol idno

Hey guys, i have just uploaded the schedule onto Adrive, its on ryan account, the email login is and the password is Shofukamachi1 (is case sensitive) and is on the second page. From there you should be able to make your own one, i have roughly placed in everyone's work as no one sent me there own even though i did ask over a week ago, so you will have to work around this one.

Ryan: Hi everyone,
Sure is a great relief to have the first draft of the dissertation done ay? But it's no time to start getting lazy, we have to keep working hard if we want to make an awesome animation =) So all we have to do now is begin getting things started/finished (modelling, texturing, rigging) and so on. Lets make the most of the time we have now so we don't have a great big rush in the 3rd term, remember to keep this wall alive with any questions, relevant research or awesome tutorials we come across which could benefit the rest of the team, best of luck to everyone
