Here is that project I started in Maya... which is proving much more troublesome than I could have ever imagined. The first video is the preview render of the whole story. The animation probably isn't final, just wanted to block in the story for the sake of my teacher's sanity. But I mean, the way my files are looking right now, it probably won't change much from this preview, since I'm afraid to edit too much and mess up all the files... again. The HQ button doesn't seem to work on this video, dunno.
This second video is a render of the first scene, meaning it has smoothed edges, textures, and lights and shadows. So eventually this is what the whole thing will look like. Still no sound on any of these, that's a whole 'nother ordeal I haven't gotten around to quite yet. This one looks good in high quality, so uh, hit that HQ button.
