Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating a character from seated to standing: Adding secondary motion, part of Learning Character Animation.
…At this point in the process we've worked mostly with the hips.…But we've got a pretty good shift of weight, so let's take a look at this.…So, she's anticipating the move, and then standing up.…But obviously, the upper body needs to get into the process.…So let's go ahead and just start working…our way through some of the major poses here.…So I'm going to go to frame seven, where we have our anticipation.…Now, what we've got here is we've got…this character, she's backing up because she wants to go forward with her momentum.…So she's really trying to go back so that way,…she can go forward and really push her body weight forward.…
Now remember, at this point, her body weight…is pretty much straight down into the bench.…But eventually, we'll want this…to move forward and up. So that way, her weight is now here.…So, what we need to do is take the majority of…her weight wha, when its here, and push it over here.…And that requires moving that upper body off the side…of bench, so that she can get it over her feet.…
