    [TOOL] Animating 2D Paintings with a Procedural Mesh + Skeletal Animation Framework in UE4

    Hello Game Devs,

    Here is a demo UE4 scene animating some paintings extracted from the British Library Lab's public domain archives ( https://www.flickr.com/photos/britishlibrary/albums ) The 2D paintings are brought to life via the Creature Procedural 2D Motor System, it's UE4 plugin and of course the most important entity, Unreal Engine!



    The overall process and video is documented here:


    More info on animating one of the birds in the video is here:


    Characters are animated in Creature (http://creature.kestrelmoon.com/ ), with the human clothing done using the new dynamic Cloth + Wind Fields feature.

    I have made the UE4 Project and plugin available for all to download and play around here:

    I hope you guys have fun trying out the project and viewing the video posted above.

    Cheers!

    This tool is incredible - exactly what I was looking for - for 2d games as well as own non game animations! Excellent work.
