Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Timing poses and adding holds, part of Learning Character Animation.
…Once I get my poses blocked out, I need to time those poses to the dialog.…So in this case, it's really just a matter of kind of pushing the poses back or…cutting and pasting the keys for those poses to get them aligned with my dialog.…Now, I have four poses here.…I have an initial pose.…I have this pose for the word, this is way.…And then this one is, too much for me.…So all I need to do is time those so that they hit on the dialogue.…
So I'm going to start here at the back and just start pushing back these keys.…We're going to go ahead and cut this key. And then slide the time slider back,…about to frame 47, which is the word much, and then set a key.…So, the next one is the word way.…So, again, I'm going to go ahead and set my timeline there.…I'm going to go ahead and cut these keys, and…then just move this back, somewhere around frame 27.…
And set that key, and then the next one is the word this.…And again, cut and paste, or you can slide it if that's how you want to work with…your software. It really doesn't matter.…
