falling....

i know with euphoria being used that the physics are going to be intense and we have viewed in past trailers people falling or jumping and then rolling out, but what about falling from builings or abandoning helicopers midflight, and for that matter when it dropps out the air will you come face to face with the blades still spinning?
i know its a bit sadistic but one of the first things il do when i get the game is climb as high as i can and jump, just to see what happens, maybe if you fall far enough you will bounce off the pavement like in max payne
what would you like to see
any thoughts/comments

I've seen some endorphin videoes where they fall a long way down, and there is some bounce to them when they hit the ground. Euphoria will probably be the same.

the bailing out of helicopters has always bugged me, it should like slowly spin and keep going in the same general direction once you bail, not shut the engine off and fall like a rock. planes kind of did this in SA but helicopters were crap

Euphoria and Endorphin are not the same thing. Endorphin creates canned fbx animation files by combining pre-made mocaps with behavior events and other simulations.

The animations made in endorphin don't occur in real-time like with Euphoria.

No, but both are made by Natural Motion, and both use the same kind of software. So, they should look pretty much the same.

I'm perfectly aware of that, thank you. However, wether or not the animation is dynamic or canned, hardly has anything to do with what happens when a guy is taken to a high place and let go. Admitted I'm no physics expert but I think the body hitting the ground will react the same way.

Edit: Thank you Jon, nice to see someone who thinks before they talk. : )

Trust me, they'll be very different. Pre-made animations don't even match up to what we've seen of Euphoria.

I take it you've never used endorphin.

The animations aren't pre-made. You make the animations the same way Euphoria does, the only difference is that Endorphin records the animations instead of making them on the spot.

Exactly right!

Perhaps this can shed a little bit of light on your question, Almostrodney

I've seen many videos of it and for some reason everyone's told me their pre-made. :/

Well, I guess that my point was that pre-made / recorded animations probably don't compare to on the spot.
