Start work on animating......serious lagging going on making animating really difficult. every time the graph editor was selected it would have cut out imagery of the scene pasted over the editor. so the editor had to be opened as a separate window to be able to work on. The scene was difficult with both character and plane selected Maya just would not let me animate.....really lagging....So we had to first animate the plane then import the character then parent the character to the plane......we had problems with parenting. Maya would not parent the plane and the character after many attempts we just animated seperatly. Also when the character was selected and parenting was done. When moving the plane and character jacks rig would just come out. So in the end we had to delete the rig and place Jack in the plane. This still deformed the skin of the character. So in the end we animated pieces seperatly.
