How to Animate - It's Easy!
animation tutorial part. 1 AKA "the secret of animation" from giovanni braggio on Vimeo.
Above is a very short and very funny video by Giovanni Braggio, revealing the hidden secrets of computer animation. Giovanni explains how easy it is to animate. Forget the complicated business of learning timing and spacing the hard way - you just pick your language, and ask the character to perform for you.
So why are you spending all this time and money at University if animation is as easy as Giovanni says it is?
In truth, what Giovanni has created is a superb piece of animation with one of the oldest and most reliable free rigs for use in Maya - Norman. Norman has been around for a decade, a solid and dependable platform for students to learn CG animation.
