If someone begins a new project, what workflow should be used? For example:
1) draw the first frame, add new keyframe in the Timeline, draw it, add another keyframe etc.?
2) first add a bunch of keyframes then draw them?
What workflow do you use? Helpful details are welcome.
If you're just talking about frame by frame animation workflow then I make a blank keyframe, draw that frame, make a new blank keyframe and then toggle on the onion skin button and drawn that frame and so on.
When I animate FBF I like to first sketch a general outline. The outline key frames occur between every 20-50 blank frames. This is nice if your working on a dynamic shot with timing, panning and whatnot. If you don't like how something looks you can change it without worrying about deleting frames you've already drawn. After I've finalized the outline I go back and smooth the motion with extra key frames as necessary.
Keep in mind that different animators have different styles. Mine is just one of them.
I'm a nub.
