Ver demo descargando aquí.Animate! With Cristin McKee, Volume I: Animation Fundamentals is the first volume in a new multi-disc series on character animation with Animation:Master. This is essentially a complete animation course for beginning to advanced-intermediate animators. Future volumes will be released as each disc is completed over the next few months.
In this initial disc, Anzovin Studio animator Cristin McKee thoroughly explores the techniques and theory of basic character animation. Cristin takes you step-by-step through the fundamental principles of animation, while alos calling attention to many beginners' mistakes and explaining how to avoid them. Numerous examples are animated "live" to give viewers a detailed look at the animation process of a professional animator. All of the animation examples include "right" and "wrong" versións which are analyzed in depth to provide a frameworque for distinguishing between good and poor animation. A complete and detailed lesson plan supplements the training materials, making Animate! With Cristin McKee an excellent text for any animation curriculum.
"My goal,” says Cristin, who has been developing this series for more than a year, "is to show new animators practical ways to apply the established rules and tricks of animation--approaches that I always wished someone had taught me while I was in the early stages of learning to animate." Cristin has worked on many high-profile projects, including “GI Joe: Valor vs. Venom”, “Halo 2”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (the game), “John McCain: Faith of My Fathers”, and Anzovin Studio's short film “Duel”.
Included topics: Getting Started * Keyframes * Squash & Stretch * Anticipation * Follow Through * Overlapping Action * Secondary Action * Animating a Simple Character.
The disc contains appróximately 1.5 hours of hi-res video and more than 20MB of supporting materials. Hash models, Hash project files, tip sheets, transcribed lessons, and sample movies, among other extras, are included on the disc.
