A little demo of how I block out a quick walk-cycle using custom mirroring tools I've written for Maya. This is 6x speed and was about 25 minutes in real time. Generally I don't animate most things in such a layered fashion, but for walks and runs I find it's a nice way to work quickly. The main tools I'm using here are scripts that allow me to mirror different kinds of controllers, from IK feet and hands to Spine controllers and FK arms. These will work with pretty much any rig and don't need any set-up. During the blocking section I'm also using a tool that keys the same pose on the first and last frame of the cycle so I don't have to play that frame when animating (which would look like a hitch since it's the same pose as frame 1). That tool is based on the 'set prompt' tool in Maya but automatically figures out how long the loop is so I don't have to type it in each time (I think I'm actually using it too quickly to see clearly in the video but you'll see it flash up now and then :) ) The other thing you'll see me doing from time to time is favoring keys using my own version of the classic 'TweenMachine' tool (the arrow buttons on my shelf). I wrote a TweenMachine tool for C4D a while back (available on my website) and found I preferred just having some buttons to nudge poses back and forward rather than a slider so I wrote one for Maya too. At the end of the video I convert the walk-in-place to one that translates in world space using another tool I created called 'bh_snapToWorldspace'. Hope you find it interesting! The Sheldon rig is from the fantastic iAnimate online animation school.+ More details

My first tutorial video on Animating Characters in After Effects. This is a general overview on how to combine the puppet tool and Null Objects to make a simple bone system for 2D puppets. Here is the Expression I used: n=thisComp.layer("Put the name of the Null Object layer here"); nullpos=n.toComp(n.anchorPoint); fromComp(nullpos);+ More details

In this part we'll create the tension between the bubbles and the liquid. It's very necessary if you want to have a realistic coffee. The Bubbles, if you want to mesh it, you can do it with Frost or V-Ray MetaBall. www.facebook.com/particleskull 1st Part: https://vimeo.com/94038640 2nd Part: https://vimeo.com/94910917 Files: goo.gl/LlTrRK Like us on FB and keep learning! facebook.com/particleskull Special Thank's to Adam Reid.
