Well, I'm getting closer ... used the Firefly renderer to redo the animation, although I had to turn off raytracing, so it's still not nearly as nice as the still renders. Other than a glitch about midway through, where a couple frames didn't render properly, it turned out much better, and the cameraman didn't look drunk!

Next one will definitely have to utilize Lightwave ... I'm looking forward to Poser Professional, which will bring in tighter integration and migration between the two applications, so once animation can be set up in Poser for the characters (taking advantage of the rigging and also Mimic for lip sync), it can be animated in Lightwave without having to set it all up again.
