Have you ever needed a walk cycle for your animation in Maya? If so then this course is for you. In this course, Building Walk Cycles in Maya 2017, you'll cover walk cycle creation from gathering references to final translation of cycled animation into forward motion. First, you'll begin by learning good sources of reference material and how to create and mirror the four basic poses of a walk. Next, you'll then jump in and learn varying poses and timing to give your walk cycles different flavors. Then, you'll discover how to refine those poses and timings using the graph editor. Finally, you'll explore time-saving baking techniques for converting cycled animation to keyframed movement. By the end of this course, you'll have learned a set of fairly sophisticated techniques for creating walks that you can apply to your own characters, animations, and productions. Software required: Autodesk Maya 2017.
