Fake 3D Walkcycles in After Effects
You will learn how to create fake 3D that will look so realistic that no one will ever get how you do that. I will teach you all my tricks and life hacks on the example of this cute little pigeon.
What is this course about?
Learn how to tame this pigeon from start to finish in After Effects. In this masterclass, we will be talkin’ about Faux 3D, Puppet Tool & a small dose of frame-by-frame animation.
I will also guide you through some of my techniques, my workflow, and custom expressions. Better keep this folk as wiggly as possible, right? Also Download The BlenderBros Hard Surface Game Asset Course Free Download 2021
Adobe After Effects
Shape the Character in Illustrator
Basic shapes, pen tool & a tiny bit of nonsense, that’s all you need for designing this peep! We will also use masks, pathfinding and a few other cool AI techniques.
Prepare Layers & Setup Workspace
Don’t rush straight into AE! A tidy workspace and good naming are the keys to be more effective. Let’s Marie Kondō this workflow (I assure you it’s fun).
3D Turn: Fake it!
Infinite round and round and round and round… Hacking 2D shape layers to get a 3D look requires some intricate knowledge, or not
Supercharge the Puppet Tool
It’s time to see the wobbly magic hidden behind this creepy function. Pin it, link it, offset it, these are some good ol’ tricks!
Secondary Wavy Action
We will see what a simple path animation can do for you. Meet your two new friends: Vertice and Tangent.
Frame-by-frame Walk Cycle
Okay, after all this warm-up, we are ready to punch some serious keyframes. And there will be a lot of them in this section. Let’s roll for cel-animation basics in AE.
Wrapping up & Finishes
You’d be surprised how simple finishes give another dimension to your design. I love shaking this screen, and you?
