Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video About the course, part of Character Animation: Basics.
This course is a foundations course, which means that it teaches the principles of animation, regardless of software. The course is not software specific. So we're going to actually present the material in an interface that is generic, and looks something like this. Now we will be providing you with rigs that you can use in your favorite software. Now these rigs look identical regardless of software, so you should be able to use those rigs to animate your own material or to follow along.
And hopefully the material that we present will be applicable to any rig or any character that you choose to animate.
