Improve Your Animation

Industrial Light & Magic animator Peter Kelly offers tips on how to improve your animation. He recommends animating in 3D space rather than just animating to one camera. By paying attention to how characters look from many angles, you’ll have to add weight to the characters, which will also make the characters look more realistic.

Peter also suggests making big changes to your work when a supervisor asks for a change. Rather than making minute changes, he advises animators to make a noticeable change that can then be dialed back if necessary.
