Part 7

In this part add more realism to our character with secondary animations. We add a little bit of random motion since in real life people never stand 100% still. Also, we animate her chest to simulate some breathing and make her hair swing a bit when she is walking.

Overview

In this series we create a highly automated rig to animate 2D characters for cartoons in After Effects. The rig is based on iExpressions and the puppet tool. It features

  • an automated walk cycle,
  • automatically rotating wheels
  • secondary animations
and much more.
