For example where arm traveling from point A to C where B is the mid point of movement. Move point B ahead or after exact mid time sequence.
@ridex That’s a nice recommendation, and certainly worth the time about offsetting the middle movement… I am familiar with some of anticipation… reaction ect your refering to… but its funny because I can’t even think about adding that kind of stuff which takes an animation from OK… to really good and natural, until I get at least the basic movement looking “unrobotlike” because even if I put it some aniticapation before and some reaction stuff after… I’m still looking at this dude who looks like robot man during the main movement… if that makes sense. But I’ll definitely try your suggestion on the offset.
edit… Hey Ridex just noticed your from Madison… I used to travel up that way a lot for work… love that town a cool progressive town for sure… ya hey dar…ya really should visit Madison
@smalltroll Its funny you mention that… because as i’m working on this friggen character I’m finding myself trying to imitate the poses to kind of get what would be natural. My kid walked by and gave me a real strange look (and deservedly so) as he saw me pretending to lift something up… its like playing air guitar on a bigger scale I’ll definitely check out your endless reference site…so thanks for that.
But I guess my question to both of you…becomes this… so I got this robotic movement that seem to be between the beginning and ending poses… I have a decent point A and point C but to get to point C… I have to put in a bunch of little keyframes for diferent bones… the poses at A and C are OK but its much of the middle part thats F’d up… so do I delete the whole middle part and start over… do I start messing with timing of the middle keyframes… do I start deleting a bunch of middle keyframes and hope for the best?
I wish I could post a blend file… but I just can’t because of the size… but I’ll take any and all suggestions, recommendation and wild ass guesses anyone wants to offer them.
FYI… press on the one arm bandit and casino link in my signature, and that will show you the WIP I’m working on… I’m just starting the character animations now…
