I rigged all the characters for this commercial. Three of them are quite simple – bones, envelope and some shapes.. But the last one, Superman, has some interesting features – muscle-like cartoony deformations, blend by null.. You can see it below.
It was an interesting task to make juice plop in glasses but never splash outside. It was done with ICE deformer – as I guess, simulation is a horribly wrong way to do it in this case. So I got it – controlled and predictable real-time fluid rig, animator can see the result immediately and adjust it on the fly.. very handy!
Also I rigged Choco Macho character for this commercial.
