    To anyone confused about Monty's involvement in this let me clarify.
    Aside from being one of my best friends, huge inspiration and mentor for years...

    -He encouraged me to go for it. To do a fan animation of my fav game series rather than use my original lame looking robot character who had no background story or fan base. I already wanted to do an X fan film, so it was clear. (X8 not being my fav of the series, but it was my only resource for models at the time)

    -I was hesitant to go through with it out of fear that Capcom would sue me...but this is the guy who made Dead went on anyway. It was a risk I had to take and thankfully Capcom played it cool.

    -He tweaked my animation in the 1 clip from 1:34-36 to make the spin kick look more badass.

    -Zero's black visor was his idea.

    -He provided the KOS-MOS gatling guns and helped me make them transform by creating the blend shapes for me. (I animated the parts)

    -He got me in with Rooster Teeth where I could use the mocap stage to speed things up.

    -He convinced the RT peeps to let me work on this during business hours since we could re-use the animations I made on other future Poser projects (RvB, RWBY, etc). (win win)

    -The fact I even use Poser was because of him. He blew my mind showing me how to use this software on a level more advanced than any tutorials I could find.

    -If it weren't for him encouraging me through his own work, showing me it pays off to work your butt off for something you love doing, this would not have existed.

    -Lastly but not least, this animation was the first real solo project I did where I was able to put into action all the tricks I learned from him over the years. (So much more learned since then) Apologies to those who hate the end. I wanted to make this so much better and keep the story a lot more in line with the series, but time. Time is the a-hole who got in my way. But it was either make changes in order to get it done or never finish it at all. Sometimes you just have to make the hard decision to move forward and stop trying to perfect it for all eternity. Otherwise it would never get done.

    When he saw his name in the credits he was like "What? You really don't have to do that?". But how could I not put his name there? It was not to gain more attention. It was out of appreciation for giving me the time of day. It was my way of saying thank you and trying to honor him. Not the greatest animation in the world, but this is a piece of my life. It's part of my journal.

    btw, I did have X's Ultimate Armor rigged and ready for animation. As well as the 3 girls, Alia, Layer and Pallette. Plus Lumine & Sigma. I just, did not have time to make it work the way I wanted.

    So, I don't know if this is an appropriate post or even necessary. I just want it out there for the record. Monty's involvement was all the above in order to help me grow as an animator and get a little closer to mastering the ability of telling a story. Bringing imagination to life to share with others and hopefully make people a little more happy.

Hey Shane, do you still have the 3D models you used for the Megaman X fan animation and could you send me a link?

If not, what did you use to rip the models?

hey,Shane.Have u guys seen the new features for Maya 2015.U can use shaderfx for rwby and viewport 2.0 now supports particles.I am pretty sure u can use apex cloth with realtime shadows and lights.
