A walk cycle? With no legs??
Hey Campers, Tony Ross of tonyteach.com here. In this premium Toon Boom Animate tutorial, we create a forward walk-cycle (no legs involved).
This tutorial is based on anime and old-school limited animation, like Scooby Doo. Whenever you would see a character walking toward the camera, they would only be shown from the waist up. This was used as an option, when time and budget were tight, as it takes longer to create a convincing forward walk cycle when the legs are visible.
This Premium tutorial is 26 min long, and normally priced at
$2.95, but for a limited time, you can get this for just $1.
All the best-

Here is another great piece created by Adam Phillips, one of the most proficient Animate Pro users. This music video is for Cilla Jane, an independent singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. “Into the Woods” is a track from her new album called ‘Until Morning Comes’, which is available on iTunes.
Check out the video:
Here is what Adam stated: “The animation was done 100% with Toonboom Animate Pro. It’s entirely 2D, I’ve used Toonboom’s morphing to achieve some of the 3D-ish effects, like the fox head and girl turnaround.”

Tony Ross shares why he is dropping Flash for Animate when it comes to creating animation.
Animate’s capabilities for character rigging, true 3D camera, and automated lip sync have succeeded in convincing him and never looking back!

The hand-drawn animated Disney film set in jazz-soaked 1920s New Orleans is a refreshing, lively version of the fairy tale.

Gregory Hargis is a Sr. Video Editor/Animator for Awana® Clubs International. He has been working in video for the last 5 years and has a degree in Visual Communications and Film Studies. He owns a small business focusing on photography as well as freelance visual communications including animation. Gregory uses Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Animate Pro to create animation for children that are wholesome, fun and exciting videos with Christian Values. “I’ve started my animation career with Digital Pro. Even the simple upgrade to Animate Pro has vastly improved productivity and cleaned up my timeline. With the use of key-framing drawing layers instead of just pegs, and now symbols, my cut-out characters are much easier to manage.(..) (Toon Boom Professional Products) are by far the best animation software on the market. Ease of use and quality outputs, nothing compares. Customer and Tech support are second to no-one”, commented Greg.
