We have an exciting opportunity for a CG Generalist position to join the Bardel family. As a CG Generalist, you will be taking 3D vehicles, animating them based on the animatic, then exporting the animation for import into Harmony, then using Harmony tools to trace back the CG vehicle to match the character animation. You'll need to have a good foundation in both Maya and Harmony for this role.  This is a perfect position for someone who enjoys working on a fast paced, high profile show and loves 2D animation.

In Maya:

In Harmony:

  • import a rendered png sequence of the maya animation.

  • if a 2D build is provided of the vehicle, import it into the Harmony scene to load it's colour palette. If there is no build created, you'll need to create a colour palette based on the provided design.
  • if there is a camera move in the scene, you'll need to attach the png sequence to it.
  • using Harmony drawing and painting tools, you'll need to traceback and colour the vehicle.
