Working with IK tools.

Did this little walk cycle today using the IK tools in Animate Pro:

It’s not the greatest piece of animation in the world but it’s a pretty good demonstration of what IK can do.

The IK tools are so freaking easy to use once you figure out how to use them and how to lock the feet to the ground. Reminds me a lot of working in Maya… only 50x easier haha.

I used to use Anime Studio for 2D animation and the IK was similar, I could at least lock the feet to the ground for full body shots, but it was a big pain in the butt to actually do a real walk cycle or a jump or a run that actually looked good haha.

I’ll post more tests soon.

That looked pretty good.

I think the front leg was rigged better than the back leg. I felt the knee area on the back leg didn’t look as appealing as the front let.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, when i first read was on my phone internet so no watching videos!

Cool stuff!
