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)
