Learn how to bridge the gap between the traditional animation principles and digital software!
The early masters of animation created a list of 12 principles which are important for anyone who wants to create interesting and believable animation. Digital animation continues to make incredible technological advancements that give animators the capability to produce visually stunning work. New technology, however, also has a tendency to create an environment where animators are so focused on adapting to the new workflow that they tend to dismiss these fundamental animation principles… which often leads to poor and lifeless character animation. Tradigital Animate CC helps you focus on these principles while using the program’s wide array of features to create believable animation, consistently.
