Fundamentals of Animation in Blender
What You’ll Learn
Through focused lessons and 12 exercises, this course fleshes out key animation principles
Timing & Spacing
Timing and spacing is what separates good animation from great animation. timing is how long it takes for something to move. Spacing is how it gets there.
Squash & Stretch
Showing the change of shape through squash and stretch can add a lot of appeal and life to any action.
Overlap & Drag
Not everything should move at once. Learning how to drag things behind and then overshoot the target can be a lot of fun.
Walking the walk
Once you’ve practised each of the principles, you will learn to put them all together and create some entertaining walk cycles.
Plus much more!
Our goal is for you to understand the foundation for crafting compelling animation; that everything complex is the collection of its simple parts. Like for example, how all motion can be understood in the context of a bouncing ball.
Our 3 Vonnbot characters have been updated with new features. They are rigged and ready for animation. By gradually layering the simple principles of animation together in a way that’s easy to understand, you’ll learn to breathe life into them just like a professional.
