    Exactly what it says on the tin. This is the rough cut. There's a number of things I know I need to work on. For one, I didn't take as many pictures for the pan to the cab as I thought I did. Whoops. I also need to make a crane rig to get some of those shots just the way I want Looks like it's time to break out the LEGO bricks.


    Three questions:
    1. What's the worst jump?
    2. What do you guys think of his eyes lighting up after the inner robot transformed?
    3. How was the symbol transition?

    It is cool man are the blue eyes in the final take a led modification or just computer effects? Now on your questions, the worst jump is the final one after the symbol transition that In fact is a scene, because he does nothing there, but do not jet me wrong overall is very good.

    The blue-eyes were done via GIMP, following Coolhand's tutorial. The last shot there is just a still picture showing the super robot mode, in the final version it'll be replaced with him firing his laser rifle and his missiles.

    :lol  Indeed. Reminds me of the scene from a movie featuring a certain killer rabbit.

    It was supposed to evoke the Diaclone Powered Convoy commercial.
