What’s the best method for creating a simple walk through animation? I’m trying to create the feeling of walking through some of my game level architectural models as video walk throughs. What’s the best method to achieve a natural feel? I’d really like to be able to record me walking through with Shift-tab to an ipo curve, then just render it. I need to be moving about 5’ per second, so if I make the animation at 30 frames per second for you tube, (which seems to be 29.4 or something), I need to travel about 5 feet every 30 frames. My objective here is to not have it feel like a fly through, but a walk through. I’ll need to move over steps, around corners etc.
I don’t know much about animation, so my previous methods were to just insert some keyframes, then play with the curve until it feels right, but it never does.
