I like the way the girl anticipates her big head turn (and her pig tails follow through)


#88 has free video tutorials for 3d studio max, photoshop, flash…
if you send in a request sometimes they put up a tutorial based on your request.


Hey everyone, thanks for all the great resources. I’m sure they’ll come in very helpful! :smiley:


Hi, anyone know of any good free tutorials for runs and walks on the net?



Does anyone have a website resource for rigging up a lego mini fig ?


I think you should post this in the rigging section or maya or max sections


iPhone app ftw! :slight_smile:


Animation is all the rage on the web and is becoming more popular every day. Before you even begin to create animations, there are several important aesthetic issues to take into account. To elaborate, a single animation on a web page will overwhelm all static images, so placement is important.

Before you place a finished animation on your site, be aware that if you have more than one animation on a single page, the effect can overwhelm the viewer and turn them off, rather than draw them in. Also, animations that cycle endlessly can quickly become annoying. Design your animation with a finite number of loops, so that it eventually stops.

Once you’ve decided to create an animated sequence, you need to start with the fundamentals.


thank you for this 2 amazing sites! :slight_smile:


Check out the ultimate animation resource website where you won’t find anything of value…


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
