Wow ... extremely nice ... missing words ...

but now: Nitpicking ! *g

have you seen closely the feets in the frames 160-170 ?

when he turns, it seems, that the inner foot moves into the outer one ...
at least it seemes so ...

He seems to have a purposeful, but casual, step about him. I can easily imagine
him carrying a padd and stopping to check on some equipment, starting to move on
to the next checkpoint, then spotting someone he would like to get better
acquainted with <wink> and changing direction to pursue.

Very well done.

(I'd like to mention here that I did use a checker pattern for
my entry-winth-an-entry in the Robots round, but that was a
deliberate effort at being lame.)

If the anti-aliasing is good, the distance is usually a mix of the two
colors, and isn't really a problem.

The problem with checkered patterns in MPG files is the sharp edges
between the squares in the foreground.  Either you get a lot of
artifacts or you have a huge file.

Regards,
John

It looks like he is. Watch very closely when he's stopped or turning and
you'll see his jaw moving up and down, up and down.

Awesome!!!   :o)   This is the best character animation I've seen in Pov and
maybe because I never see such modern toons, it's so smooth like I can't
even imagine.

Because I implemented Dave's suggestion! :)
(I updated the animation after Dave sent his message.)

That's probably right. I hadn't seen that. Hmm, now to find out how to avoid
that...

Making the feet 100 units distant from each other should do the trick.
Don't bother to thank me.

Hmmm ... How 'bout constructing Al as a Particlesystem ...
with:
 - _many_ small blobs ...
 - _many_ forces between these particles ...
 - these particles forming the body of Al ...
 - and: ..... Particlecollission-detection ..... *tataaa* ?
