As shown in the smoothed and unsmoothed screenshots of the 'Block Man', the number of polygons can be changed to fit the scene and distance from the camera without losing its shape at all. For example, if the 'Block Man' is only in the background the meshsmooth modifier can be turned off to save a large amount of rendering time.
The downloadable video shows how motion capture data can be applied to the 'Block Man' to obtain realistic and fun animations. As well as this, the video effectively shows how the reactor plugin can work with the 'Block Man' to produce photo-realistic physics-based animation. The video is only one of an infinite number of things possible to do with the 'Block Man'...
This character, whether it be a supporting part of your scene or the main feature, can be animated and textured in any way your imagination will let you!
