In this collection of lessons we will learn about a wide variety of animation techniques that are designed to improve your animation skill-set. In this course we will build an animation of a character climbing over a wall from scratch, using techniques that can be implemented in any animation. Step by step, we'll create this climb while covering various techniques like: how to block in your extremes so that finalizing the animation becomes a faster process, strengthening poses to get a more entertaining outcome, and we'll also learn how to work smarter by utilizing Animation Layers to tweak pre-existing animation non-destructively, so that by the end of this course, you'll have the knowledge base you need to create animations quickly and proficiently. Software required: Maya 2011 and higher.
