Description

In this course, we will explore the animation principle of follow-through and overlapping in 3ds Max. What should be considered when animating follow-through and overlap? Can follow-through be automated to save time? We will answer these questions as we cover techniques for using this principle to help add more realism to our animations. By the end of this course, you will be more knowledgeable of follow-through and overlapping action, which will help you create more natural-looking animations. Software required: 3ds Max 2011 and higher.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi. I'm Bueno, and I'll be your instructor as we explore the animation principle of follow-through and overlapping in Max. This course is one of our follow-up courses to our 12 principles training. In these branch-offs, we go a little deeper and focus more on how to implement each principle. As animators, it's crucial that we understand each of them if we are to improve the overall quality of our work. And that's exactly what these courses were designed for. What should be considered when animating follow-through and overlap? Can follow-through be automated to save time? We'll answer these questions as we cover techniques for using this principle to help add more realism and loosen up our animations. By the end of this course, you'll be more knowledgeable of follow-through and overlapping action, which will help you create more natural-looking animation. So with that said, let's go ahead and get started with the course.
