Hey everybody! Back from vacation. I can honestly say it was very difficult to get back on the plane to come home.. I've been pulling my hair out over the past 2 weeks trying to come up with a tourbillon movement that really looks like hi-speed RPMs.
I'm fooling around with the Piaget altiplano platform - a tourbillon / partial skeleton with some gears. I gave up trying to compute rotation to make it look real and decided to use @eradicator09's 20-frame animation trick using 20 "pre-blurred" images of the rotating spindle.
Before I actually put a lot of time in the face I was hoping you guys could have a look at the tourbillon movement and let me know what you think? If it looks "real" I'll continue with the rest of the design, otherwise I'll scrap it and move on to something else. ...or any other comments?
