Building Reusable Character Actions in Moho Pro 13
What you'll learn
- How to use the Actions panel
- Build step based actions which can be linked with others
- Learn how to create walk cycles and other character animations
- A copy of Moho Pro 13 is required to open the project files
- Basic bone rigging knowledge
Moho's robust bone system is great for creating quick, eye pleasing animations. And with the Actions panel, you can save, edit and reuse these actions at any time. You can even transfer the animation to other rigs with a similar makeup. This process is great for larger projects with reusable actions or multi-episode series that rely on the same actions.
In this course you will learn how to set up the three main action types: Smart, Morph and Regular. In addition, we will go over various tips and tricks to ensure your workflow is being maximized with this feature.
This also acts as a crash course in character animation as we will be applying anticipation, follow-through, and other animation principles to help solidify our library.
More specifically in this course you will learn:
How to create the three action types: Morph, Regular and Smart
Enhance rigs further with additional Smart Dials
The differences between Copies and References
The importance of grouping and action organization
Build an actions library which can be used for multiple projects and rigs
Build up isolated one step actions which can be linked together with others to create unique animations
Setup robust motions such as a walk cycles and learn what it takes to create eye catching results
Create an action dial that acts as an alternative to the Actions Panel
Import and export actions from and to Moho documents
Who this course is for:
- Animators looking to build a resuable library of character actions
- Animators looking to bolster their animation skills
I have spent several years learning different kinds of software while freelancing personal and commercial projects. Along the way I have collected a bunch of useful knowledge that can be translated into engaging video tutorials. So while I continue to create zany animated adventures, I want to share with you what I have learned.
I have worked for several companies over the years creating eLearning content. Some of these include: Smith Micro, Virtual Training Company, Packt Publishing, Train Simple and Pluralsight.
My animation is freelance based and isn't as well known as my eLearning content. I have a few animation projects I currently have my hands in. In addition, I work for others who need animation assistance.
