The art of character animation is about telling story through acting. This lecture covers the setup of a two-character scene that includes a simple character, with few keyable attributes, and a complex character with many keyable attributes. We will approach setting major key poses, moving holds, extremes, overlap and contact positions together with adding and freeing tangent weight on function-curves. Inbetweens are also used to control the contrast and spacing of movement in our animation. The end result is a fully realized scene that is believable and sophisticated.

Topics covered:
Focusing on Story
Setting-up Poses
Hiding Keys
Moving Holds
Contact Positions
Adjust Timing and Spacing
Overlapping Action and Weight
Using the Graph Editor
F-Curve Tangent Weights
