Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Ghosting animation, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…One way to better visualize your animation is to use ghosting.…Now ghosting basically just creates copies of your objects as they…flow through the scene, so you can see how they're moving.…It's very similar to onion skinning in traditional animation.…So let's go ahead and ghost this spaceship.…As you can see we've got it animating along this path.…So I am just going to select my main node…of my spaceship and then under Animate, select Ghost Selected.…And when I do, notice how it changes a little bit, and…then as I go through the animation, you'll see how that ghosting works.…
And you can kind of see how far apart the…keys are and also the flow of the animation.…Now by default, Maya ghosts before and after the current frame.…So I've got three ghosts after and three ghosts before.…Now I can change that if I want, when I originally create the ghost.…Now in order to get rid of ghosting, all you have to do…is do Animate > Unghost All, and that will get rid of it.…So let's go ahead and select our object again and let's do another ghost.…
