For the past 6 days straight, all day and most nights I’ve been trying to learn toonboom harmony premium. I’ve never animated before but I’m familiar with programs in general since I edit a lot in after effects. I don’t find it intimating.
However, all of the tutorials I have come across only half-teach. Usually tutorials say ‘how to rig an arm’ or ‘how to move an arm’, ‘how to rig an eyeball’, ‘how to rig a face’ but never how to join them together to form one functioning character. And if it is a tutorial from start to finish its super basic and doesn’t let the character turn its head or body. Both free and paid tutorials are all the same from what I’ve experienced.
Is it because rigging one character literally takes more than a week or does no one want to make a 6 hour long tutorial? I’m not sure how long it takes I really want information on this subject.
Where does everyone learn? I’m learning everything broken which makes my rig broken and I don’t know how to fix it. I’ve tried and failed rigging a character a day now, today I’m up to my 7th redo with no success.
Not one tutorial I have come across so far does anything start to finish, perhaps I am searching in the wrong places?
I’m really ignorant about this software and I want to be informed, if anyone could give me some advice that’d be great for me and I’m sure for others wanting to learn!
I want to learn how to IK rig a cut out character and simple animation in toonboom harmony premium. If possible, from start to finish not leaving out any details. If there’s a tutorial or course I can take, if I need to pay I will be happy to.
It’s just frustrating when I really want to learn but am clueless about it all!
