Have you ever wondered how you could animate your favorite character or motion graphic to music?
Have you ever been curious about how animated music videos are done?
Last, but not least, if you've ever wanted to know how to use the same animation software that shows like The Simpson's, Bob's Burgers, or even Disney uses, look no further.
In this course, How to Animate to Music using Toon Boom Harmony, you will learn how simple it can be to animate to a beat! I'll not only show you how to animate to music, but I'll be showing you how you can do this in the award winning animation software, Toon Boom Harmony.
My name is Tony Ross and I’m the owner and creator of tonyteach*com, and I have over 2 decades of experience teaching digital animation, and my Toon Boom tutorials have been showcased on O'Reilly, Toon Boom, and Lynda•com.
In this course, I’ll show you tips and tricks, like comparing beats per minute to frames per second, as well as how to animate a simple dancing character moving to the beat.
Lastly will put together a short clip, animating a band…
Now, in a music video, there are certain things you can fake, or hide when animating, or even filming a band. But if the drummer is hitting cymbals, when the music is calling for drums, the illusion is lost…
I’ll show you how to get the drums animated correctly, and on beat!
If this is your first time working with Toon Boom Harmony, or even if you’re using a program like flash or adobe animate, these timing and music tips and techniques can still be applied.
