CGWorkshops - Video Game Animation Tutorial-kEISO | 12.11 GB
Compared to feature film, game animations need to be created quickly and sometimes without iteration. Kyle Kenworthy has been a game animator at Schell Games for 6 years, working on projects including Pirates of the Caribbean Online, Disney’s Toontown & Mechatars.
In this 3 week course Kyle will demonstrate techniques for rapidly creating video game based animations. You will learn tips and tricks that will help you be successful in a video game environment. Kyle will teach you many useful animation techniques including layered & pose to pose workflows, timing, appeal, animation layers, how to use video reference, and more! Using Maya and picking from a provided free rig, you will take what you’ve learned and quickly create a number of animations including: walk & run cycles, transitions, & a character introduction.
This is an intermediate entry level workshop. Students should have an understanding of Maya and the fundamentals of animation. This course will help you become a much faster and more efficient animator, which is key in the video game industry.
In week 1 ll be covering cycles. Cycles are any animations that are able to loop & repeat themselves. We’ll go over how to create these quickly and still be able to bring life into the character.
Week 2 will cover transitions. Transitions are animations that connect different player states. Standing to crouching, taking a weapon out, getting into a vehicle, the list goes on and on. We’ll go over workflows for creating these quickly & efficiently and how to add some character to them.
Week 3 is character introductions. You’ve just gotten to the end of the Dungeon Level, you’ve defeated all the enemies and you think you’re home free, when all of a sudden a giant troll busts down a door and gives a giant roar! That’s a character introduction. We’ll be using all the tips & tricks we’ve learned to create a cinematic character introduction animation.
