2. Application of Principles of Animation
3. Character Animation Mechanics
4. Character Animation Workflow
This is what you will achieve at the end of the intermediate 3D Animation Course:
Who is this class for?
1. You like to learn advance animation concept
2. You like 3d and have not got dizzy yet
3. You have basic animation background
4. You want to learn character animation
5. You like to try 3d animation as career in future
What's Bean Sprout F3R3 Method?
These are the main key points we want to include in our walk cycle animation:
1. Character walks naturally without any jerks
2. Good demonstration of forces and overlapping actions
3. Input of impactful details such as balancing, natural looking hands, visually appealing toe movement, subtle head motion and more.
The challenge that beginners face is juggling all these aspects at the same time. Using Bean Sprout F3R3 method, the entire walk cycle animation can be broken down into bite sizes which prevents beginners from being confused.
The character is animated in the following Bean Sprouting sequences:
C. Upper Torso
We then apply the Foundation 3 and Refinement 3 (F3R3) which are the 6 most essential principles of animation:
F3 sequence is PoseTimeEase:
- Pose the main keyframes in walk cycle
- Time and space the key frames
- Add in forces by Ease in and out
R3 sequence is OverExagApp:
- Add Overlapping action if applicable
- Exaggerate when actions aint obvious
- Correct any action to look Appealing
1. Is This The Right Animation Class for me?
This class is for beginners 3d animators who is are learning character animation. If you had done some basic bouncing ball and overlapping exercises in Maya, this walk cycle class will be just right for you to level up your animation skill. Or if you are a student currently learning animation but experiencing difficulty in churning out a realistic walk cycle, this class will assist you in your practice.
If you are not familiar with Maya's basic interface and have not tried animating with Maya at all, this class might be challenging for you.
Nash is a helpful and skilled lecturer. Passionate in his teaching and value his student's ideas and input.

2. Keep The Video Training Materials Even After Class!
Ever wanted to ask the trainer to repeat the steps again after class?
Now you can!
You get to watch all the training videos from all the classes even after it ends!
You can watch it repeatedly to practice 3D animation at home!
This allows you to refresh your memory if you are unable to remember the steps during class.
How cool is that?! This is what I personally wanted to have when I'm learning animation in the past. After my class, I have to try to figure out things on my own. I have this problem before and I know how sad it is.
But I do not want you to experience it! I want you to enjoy your learning even after my class.
That's my contribution to you!
3. Bonus Material - Learn To Animate With Observation Ebook !
You will get Learn To Animate With Observation Ebook for FREE when you sign up for any animation class! This ebook talks about 3 different stage to critically improve your animation concept. The ebook is built upon years of experience in the animation industry.
Reading your book has helped my observation. I now look to observe rather than see and this became possible only after I came across 'POR'. After observing, recapturing isn't a big deal and also, animation doesn't seem difficult compared to when I haven't read your book. I believe I can please the audience now.
All thanks to you!
