This Humpback Whale comes with a procedural spline animation system that produces dynamic acceleration, turning and rolling along splines. The Whale’s mouth optionally opens when it nears the player, or animates on its own. The Whale also optionally makes 'whale songs', projecting sound from its mouth.

The package includes 2 swimming animations & 3 Poses, combined in a Blendspace that animates the Whale’s movement.

It comes with 4 LODs, two texture types, Dry & Wet Materials, and a range of adjustable blueprint settings allowing maximum customization.

The Material parent has been planned in advance to allow maximum tweaking so you can adjust your material instances with complete control.

Additionally, a demo scene has been included with Underwater PostProcess Settings, Caustic Lighting, Fog, & Depth of Field, along with many Whales with their paths set up, demonstrating what can be accomplished with the Spline Blueprint.
