In this video, learn that characters no longer have to stand still. Let them walk.
- Character Animator gives us the ability to automatically…animate walk and run cycles with our characters.…And we don't have to know how to draw the cycles ourselves.…(Latin hip hop music)…So to create your walking puppet,…you need to make all the elements just standing…straight up, and all of your limbs really straight.…I happen to have two different head angles,…frontal and right quarter, that's up to you.…What's really important here is the body.…So the body, you have the torso, turn that on and off.…
And we'll leave that off for a second…so you can see all the other limbs.…You have the right arm here, and the left arm,…which is back behind it, and I have them layered…so everything hides what it's supposed to.…You have the right leg, which is in front,…and the left leg back behind, and notice it's a full leg,…'cause your going to need it, because the legs…and arms are going to be swinging back and forth.…Make sure that the limbs, not the torso,…but the limbs have a plus in front, and name them…"+Right arm, +Right leg, +Left leg, +Left arm".…
