In this video, learn how to create, name, and use pre-animated cycles of animation.
- Animation cycles include any movement that repeats itself,…and that can be really handy in animation.…(upbeat instrumental music)…Cycles are a series of images that can repeat endlessly,…or will cycle from one position to another.…So, look for opportunities to add cycles into your puppets.…Let's take a look at a couple of examples.…So, one of the cycles right here, is of the flames…that you see coming out of the top of…that little bottle right there.…So, let's go into our rig mode and see how that was setup.…
And I have the flames attached to the hand…that's holding them, the hand and the bottle.…There's six images of the flames.…We'll turn this on, so you can see them.…Okay, there's one flame, there's another.…So, it's just a cycle.…They're slightly different,…and it goes from one to the last,…and then the sixth one then leads into the first.…So, in this case, these six will cycle over…and over and over.…Another type of cycle is going from one position to another.…So, for instance, the wave.…
