I've been working on this for nearly two and a half weeks. I found that I could get about 6 seconds of animation roughed out per night plus some time to smooth out the previous night's work. It's not fast, but I enjoy the results! If people respond well to this, more can be expected in the future! If not, well, I'll probably be less inclined to spend so much time on these sorts of things (roughly 64 hours worth + 20 hours rendering).
Please take the time to let me know what you think!
So, stop sitting around here and hit up RadiantCG.com and take your pick of video formats (DivX, WMV, and Quicktime). There should be one that works for everyone!
Additionally, registered members can download the video in near-HD (960x720p)! Remember, registration's free!
Thanks everyone for looking, and especially for your comments!
Aside: I was somewhat shocked to see that Renderosity had no Animation gallery...
