Wiggle animation help Mar. 16th, 2013 @ 02:17 PM Reply

Hey, everyone. I'm working on an animation right now, and in one shot, I want to make this little guy wiggle for a few seconds, but I don't know how. I know that the visual illusion is that the arches are moving forward in a kind of loop, but I need help figuring it out. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Maybe this method will work for you? Another way is to just animate a few frames and loop it, but if you want smooth motion this is another good way to go.

Hmm. Interesting. It'll take a lot of practise with that. I'll have to try it out more later.

I finally figured out this, though. Copy and paste, etc. Thanks for the help.

Your best bet is to manually inbetween the arches so the head doesn't look as if it were tacked on. To do this you need to keep in mind the individual arcs never flatten, they just roll forward.

Example-

Coincidentally, I made a timelapse a while ago of inbetweening wavy lines

Baaaaaaaaahhhhhhh I can't open it cos I only have CS5. I do see what you mean with the video, though.

Looks very good, I don't see much wrong with it !

Maybe double some keyframes so that it has more anticipation.

Awesome job !

Thanks. I wanted something sillier and not so technical-looking that was slower (dem double keyframes), but this looked good enough. Took too long.
