Animation – Week 9


In this weeks class, we learnt about timing and animating feet for our walk cycle assessment. It is very important to time your walk as this defines your walk cycle.

We then went about changing the timing of our walk to suit the characteristics we wanted. The frames were evenly spaced with each pose every three frames. We then went about animating the feet using the roll ball, ball twist and tap attributes for the foot. This gave the feet a new level of detail and life. We were able to achieve this by studying our own walks and determined that the feet point out slightly for balance, and that the heel touches the ground first, followed by the ball then the toe, creating a rolling motion.
