View Full Version : Fingers animation with violin

02 February 2012, 12:52 AM
hello everyone,
I am a student in 3D, I use 3D Max, I just start the animation but I'm still a beginner, I need a tutorial or an explanation of how to animate a man who plays the violin or else of this kind.
I am very grateful

There are no specific tutorials on how to animate a character playing a violin, but there plenty of resources on character animation.

Please don't post the same question multiple times in different threads... anyway as far as animating it I doubt you will find a resource or tutorial catering directly to playing a violin. That is part of an animators job to solve problems like that on their own, dig up footage of people playing especially if your audio for the clip is a famous song I am sure you can find may people playing the specific song on youtube. Even record video of yourself acting like your playing, you get to choose how realistic or stylized the movement is (unless you have a client requesting otherwise). So collect/make your own references and then duplicate it in your animation.

I agree with Andrewty. The only way to really get in and learn how to do an animation, especially if there aren't many tutorials on how to animate a specific shot, or how to animate exactly what you want, is to do some research. Look for video reference, or film some yourself. It is one of most important things when it comes to becoming an animator. Look, learn, animate!
