HLC: Mani meets Shani

3d Animation of two ladies meeting, walking and talking in 3d environment

So, in our last experience, we spent most time getting coordinates together to work well with pictures we had. Hence this time, we decided that this time we will allow for far more human to human interaction rather than depending on Pexels and Pixabay. We choosed 2 models and 4 actions:

Model lady_polka_01 is named Mani in our story and model lady_ts_trouser_02 is named Shani in our story.

20_11 & 21_11: high-five, walk (2 subjects – subject A and B respectively)

20_03 & 21_03: link arms, walk (2 subjects – subject A and B respectively)

environment.egg: from Panda3D model: Panda3D-1.10.6-x64\models

But today we got stuck in a new feature: To be able to perform basic image manipulation on a running video. Hence to keep it short here is story:

  1. Mani and Shani walked towards each other
  2. Mani and Shani high fives (which to our amazement is a verb in SpaCy)
  3. Mani and Shani discussed (I believe topic was why are we not using a nice picture. But as usual, we do not listen to computer simulated complaints)
  4. They walked away hand in hand.
  5. This time we added brightness feature also in the end.

And here is the final video on youtube:

beach #1-#20
camera @(0,0,270,0,0,0,1,1,1)-@(0,0,80,0,0,0,1,1,1) #1-#145

Actions synonyms used for this challenge


  1. Overall, without pictures it is easy to manipulate the models as everything is in 3D.
  2. This time, we tried to reduce the positional markings and add camera movement too
  3. Overall, around 1.1 hours spent, as in again well spent 🙂
