In this DVD Robert Kuczera guides you through his character animation process from beginning to end. He first describes how to prepare the Maya Workspace to improve and optimize your work- flow. Next, he shows how to prepare a scene for animation and animate the character. He discusses the timeline, Graph Editor, Dopesheet, layers, shelves, hot keys and MEL scripts. Robert demonstrates how to use filmed reference material to identify the key poses and place the breakdowns and in- betweens. The lecture is focused on showing you how to animate precisely and quickly through the camera. Robert presents an insider’s view of how professional animators work, showing workflow and techniques with supporting discussions on the principles of animation.
