Animation Resource&Tutorial thread


thanks for the useful tidbit…I’ve always wondered what effect animation would have on a sites appeal and overall appearance.


This is a great thread!

I’m part of an awesome Character Animation Community - Animation Salvation

It has some members who are big names in animation, and it’s geared towards creating connections between animators from all ranks and regions! Imagine Facebook for Animators, plus a Video section similar to YouTube, an “Animation Education” section, a forum to get advice and critiques called the Mentorium, regular Animation Events (including some live events), and even a Jobs Section (this will be filling up as word spreads).

Come on in and create your own account, and it’s all free!

I hope to see you in there.


anyone have a reference from a movie in which a woman walking, possibly talking on the phone has her purse snatched from her by a fast moving thief

Greetings for 2012
Forgive me the birdy pun, but this free tutorial from character animation tutor Alex Williams, teaches you how to animate an avian flap cycle.
Following on from part one, where Alex showed you how to animate the bird flapping its wings,
He now shows us how to add personality, make it fly on a believable motion path, light and render it, all the while keeping your workflow simple!
I hope you find this tutorial useful and would love to see your results should you wish to upload the shot Online.

Happy animating!

I made a video to break 3D animation down into something most people can understand. While it probably won’t be directly valuable to this community, maybe it will help you explain to people what you do!

Cheers! :beer:



hi all
can you help me figure out if it is efficient to use baking texture techniques in architectural visualization animation. i’m using fly through mode for light cache and incremental add for irradience map… all the rendering i’m sending to render farms. i’m wondering if baking texture techniques will end up being more efficient if i want to render the scenes localy.
thank you very much for your help. have a nice and productive day
