The Importance of Fundamentals
The goal of this course is to lay down the rest of the 12 bedrock principles of animation while building a more robust animation workflow with Maya. Students will learn essential animation exercises to realistically communicate weight, motion and follow-through using a simple “scrat” biped rig and doing a “vanillas walk”. Students will also learn blocking techniques with assignments that focus on full body pose shifts and getting in and out of them in different ways. Concepts like ease in and out with an interesting breakdown and overshooting the same poses can make for different and more snappy effects as well as setting up basic hotkeys to speed up their workflow.
