Improve your skills with Character Animator after you complete this course. This video explains how.
- Before you jump into production, make sure you play with Character Animator. (upbeat music) Nothing teaches you the specifics of working in a software like experience. So play with the various puppets, play with the different styles and techniques, and then download lots of Adobe's free puppets and see how they work. Go back over the earlier videos here and really understand how Character Animator ticks.
Do a few animations for yourself and then you can more accurately plan a character animation production that'll be successful and profitable. Also, make sure you check out my sites at storyboards-east.com and marksimonbooks.com, and check out my other LinkedIn learning courses, like my Storybook Pro course at lynda.com/marksimon.
So, enjoy, and keep on animating. (upbeat music)
