well... considering advent children was released in 2007? or was it 2005 in japan, it's no real surprise that you could do that sort of stuff in maya 6.5
the technology was there, just that no one could drive it the way the joes at FF7 could
and now with the invention of all the other tools and plug-ins and other apps everyone can make FF graphics...
i liked it better when FF was still way above everyone else with graphics :p
i remember back in 2000 when spirits within was released, took them 4 years to make and everyone was oo-ing and aa-ing over the fact you could see pores in people's skin, and you can't forget about that individual hair collision. a shame the movie wasn't even FF related...
now you see pores in everyone's skin
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
