Character Animation Workshop (And second anniversary!)

In this workshop we'll cover the process of animating rigged characters. That is, character models that have been already prepared with a skeleton and controls to pose and animate.  We'll go over pose by pose animation, some general animation principles and the use of the NLA editor in Blender to compose more complex animations out of simple actions.

Our animation project is still underway. You can practice what you learn in this workshop by joining our project and animating one of the characters of "Surprise Little Bug!".  Details will be given in the meeting.

Please bring a computer and a 3 button mouse! This is a hands-on workshop. You will not learn much by watching and not doing it.

Please keep that RSVP current! If you RSVP yes and then are not able to come, please come to this page and change your RSVP to no even if at the last minute. I'm going to buy Pizza and drinks and that will help me get the right amount. Wasting food is evil!

Hope to see you all at the Bocoup Loft!

    It was excellent! I really like all the people in the group and Engel did an amazing job of teaching us new things about animating a mesh and preparing a useful document to help us remember how. It's not easy to do when everybody in the group is at a different level of ability. I'm glad to have joined Boston Blenders.
