Tips #2


– RHYTHM OF YOUR SHOT –

When you start your animation, I always suggest to create a BLOCKING first!rhythm01.png

Set your tangents in STEPPED mode, in order to have a Pose to Pose, with no interpolation between keys!rhythm02

In this simple example, the Timing and the Rhythm of the shot is too boring…Timing_oldIt’s not interesting… all the keyposes, the mains action, have the same speed and a regular timing!rhythm03

Add variations in the intensity and speed of any actions helps you to have a more interesting shot! rhythm04.png

In a Blocking phase is really easy to adjust timing and spacing just moving your keyposes, change them or add some new breakdowns!rhythm05.png

In this new version, the Rhythm is much more interesting!Timing_newI added this variations: different spacing and intensity for each actions, more breakdowns, some anticipations, some exaggeration…and now also the mood of the character is more clear!rhythm06.png
