Upon stumbling upon this, I did a search to make sure there aren’t any duplicate threads. “Computerarts” returns nothing so here goes.
Visiting Deathfall this morning I found this:
Deathfall is no longer the active site it used to be so I was a little surprised that it mentioned Blender - of course it was the image from ED that caught my attention. Anyway, I followed the link to find that the tutorial is made by computerarts.co.uk - normally not a Blender heavy site either! Looks like Blender really is getting taken more and more seriously! I suppose it also shows my creative commons is such a great license for getting exposure.
Here is the link to the tutorial (freely available):
At first glance, this is an excellent tutorial well worth going through. Personally, I have never managed to figure out the NLA (mainly cause I never needed to) but here is my excuse. It would be great if this could be a regular blender tutorial but I suppose there are copyright restrictions.
Coming to think about it, I believe computerarts is where I discovered Blender all those years ago - it was listed in their free software section.
Enjoy the tutorial!
EDIT> I suppose one reason these tutorials are rare is that they get obsolete so fast. I understand that are a couple new features in the CVS that make walkcycles so much easier than even described here!
