There are so many objects in Virtual Toad that sometimes it's helpful to work on a single object in a separate file.
That's what I've done here with the "Ice Guy" from the kitchen scene. I wanted to emulate as closely as possible (and within reason) the actual mechanical apparatus used to make the Ice Guy "fall" as the ride vehicle approaches.
This video is a test clip I rendered to gauge the realism of the motion when fully animated.

This auto-looping .mov file is 4Mb in size and is 6 seconds long.

As always, you'll need QuickTime to view this and all other video clips on the site.
