I’ve been also keeping up with this guys tutorials. I’m always looking for easier and faster ways to animate an entire film. This guy has it right.
how to animate
This is a great short. It is a 3d animation but it is also 2d.
I know a lot of you like 2d. So here you go. Rotoscope some 3d.
Hey folks I know a lot of you who make anime will eventually want a fight scene.
So here are some fight scene videos to learn from.
Here is an artist showing us how to use Sequencer to make cinematics. First let us show you the level of work you can do in UE4
Here is the making of this awesome looking cinematic and here are some videos that can show you how to do it yourself.
Here is the making of…
I hope you can see the possibilities. This animation was done in real time/live. They used characters and motion capture.
Motion capture is getting a lot cheaper. . I showed a video in the posts that shows just how much cheaper they are getting. So the question is can you combine Cheap motion capture, with say Poser, Iclone or Daz characters?
Imagine using something like the characters below. Popping some mocap ln there and using Ue4 for the render?
Michel Victor has some cool work.
He has extensive tutorials on how to add animation to a still drawing. You don’t have to make the whole anime frame by frame. Why not do a manga with a little bit of pizzaz to it.
You can get your tutorials here…
This has a sort of an Appleseed, Final Fantasy feel to it.
Here is a CGI Breakdown.
I was thinking could you make a Final Fantasy looking Anime, Cartoon or Manga using Poser or Daz 3d?
I was thinking you could take a few elements like this and do something similiar to the above without having to create every single asset.
Get to it folks.
Also why are almost every short animation out there about someone getting chased by something else in a weird world. Do we like being chased?
Hey ya’ll. I was doing some research on making Anime style backgrounds. After all your characters have to live somewhere. Give them a home and place to interact with in this awesome tutorial.
Here is a link to a whole boatload of tutorials
There are tons of tutorials that you can use for your manga or your anime series.
I really love his work. I like how he uses 3d as a reference and in some cases as a render. His website has extensive tutorials. Go visit today and give your characters a place to live.
You cannot really do animation without having a few ground rules and practices. There are traditionally 12 rules of animation and I will be posting a series here for the next few days starting with
1 and 2.
These tutorials are written by Alan Becker.

I just wanted to share this cool indie animation I found.
Here is just an interesting video on how much anime costs to make per episode.
But you and I both know we can do it for less.
