Superclaymation!

Recreating claymation animation using CGI

The traditional act of claymation animation, as used in such classic British animation as Wallace and Gromit and Tony Hart’s Morph has been a process that has remained fairly unchanged since its inception. This project, involved designing a framework in order to attempt to emulate the look of this animation technique using industry standard 3D and 2D graphics packages.

Culminating in the production of a plug-in set for Nuke -a visual effects package developed by The Foundry- and a demonstration animation utilising full motion capture, the project raises important questions about the ongoing development and visual style of Computer Generated Animation as well as the place stop-motion clay animation takes in this changing climate.
