Hi guys, i am animating this guy who is very angry and scared at the same time. the effect I'm trying to achieve is like he is trembling. what would be the best way to do if.
I'm using Maya 5.

The best way will be finding out a reference, and watch it frame by frame. And follow the timing and movements in it.

What i do for these kind of scenes is..get two poses of lets say hands, copy n paste the keys alternatively on every second frame, go to graph editor and adjust the curves. Somehow as if the pitch of a graph goes down. This makes it look the movements organic, rather than mechanical. Try if it works for you...
