    Well, this isn't realistic at all...:)

      I agree, this is not realistic, but if you dont have it as scene focus, it will increase your scenes realism.
      Also this tutorial teaches you the technique, the details are still your own decission :D

      I did not expect the tutorial result to be photorealistic, when he's mostly teaching technical stuff.

    What make it unrealistic is the speed,some time speed play a big factor in realism.However,it great animation -thanks

    This tutorial helped me a lot. The sample video might not be the best, but with some little corrections (and some ornithologist knowledge), it is priceless :)

    The technique is the important thing.  The realism is in the hands of the animator.

    • Manuel L.

      Exactly :)

    Observation is the key to imitated realism animation.

    I'm guessing it's because it's a low resolution, but for me, it looks pretty realistic.

    Looks fine to me. Anyone who's seen a starling swarm should agree.

    For something in the background of a scene this would work great.
