Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating the dialogue pass, part of Character Animation: Dialogue.
…>> I've gone ahead and…finished off the secondary motion on both arms, as well as the head.…And I've added in the finger animation.…So let's just see where we're at with this scene.…>> I, I, I didn't, I didn't know that thing would explode.…I, I, I didn't, I didn't know that thing would explode.…>> So, you can see that the animation is pretty much in place.…And also that just by moving the body, we get pretty good sync.…Now this is because the body is actually a big portion of…the visual part of this scene.…
So if we were to kind of divide this up by area,…you would see that the body itself is probably 80% of the area.…And the head is probably only 20%.…So the audience is going to see more of this, than they are of this.…Now this doesn’t mean that the head is inconsequential.…It’s just that you need to make sure the body is in sync, as well as the face.…So now, let's go ahead and move on to animating the face.…
So we're going to start off by animating the lip sync and…then we'll finish off by doing facial expression.…
