I recently came across a machinima/anime by the name of RWBY and it left me very intrigued.
So after doing some research into this thing called "Machinima" I am left wanting for information. Designing a web series, movie, or anything of the like in a game engine is fascinating. Before this I'd never heard of such a thing. So if anyone is knowlegable of the subject and can offer some advice and answers to some questions I'd very much appreciate it.
First, how is something like this done(from scratch)? Do you design all the characters, animate all the actions, and play it like a regular game while recording?
And for a person who wants to make their own Machinima from scratch what advice would you have for them?
Please and Thank You
