Carbine Studios Details Metal Maw's Spawn Animation

Carbine Studios has released a follow up to the blog they did on Wildstar's boss Metal Maw last month, this time focusing on what they call his 'birth animation', seen in the video above.

A birth animation is simply the animation that is created for when a character spawns into the game world. For most characters, this is something very simple but as Metal Maw is a big and powerful boss, the team at Carbine opted for something more epic and dramatic. For Metal Maw's birth animation, he flies up out of a hole in the ground and lands, preparing for the battle. The process is interesting and Carbine Studios' Senior Animator, Seth Kendall does a great job mapping it out so non-developers can understand what goes into these processes.
