Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning the head rotation, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
Now that we have the clock rotation for the head completed, let's see about fixing things. …Like what happens if you notice something that catches your eye, or you think, oh I …think I can do better than that; it can be really intimidating. I know it frightens a …lot of people when they see these massive columns of keyframes. Where do you begin? …Well, we've set this up in such a way and so cleanly that it really makes it possible …to go in and alter things and improve them. …So here's the basic head rotation, and I've noticed a couple of things. …First of all, this layer down here is no point, Layer 3, let's get rid of that.…
So we're clean again. …So rotate through this, the neck is moving, it really shouldn't and most of these heads I …would intend to happen from one static neck position. …So let's simply keep the first frame, select everything that follows and delete them. …And if you scrub through now you will notice some points where maybe things stick out, …like right here the skin is on top of the hair, that's not good. …
