This tutorial shows how to make a very simple walk cycle for the stick man rig made in previous tutorials.
Key Points -
Create key frames using rhyme "go to frame, make change, insert keyframe"
Put leading leg forward, trailing leg back, do opposite for arms to balance
Insert key frames for the pose at the beginning and end of the walk cycle
Click the 'Insert Keyframes' button and choose 'Whole Character' option
Copy the pose and paste in the middle of the cycle, x flipped
Add some intermediate poses to make the character 'bob up and down'
Save the walk cycle as a stored action
In the Channel menu set the Extrapolation Mode to Make Cyclic
Set key frames to move the armature object from left right (while the walk cycle repeats)
