Scene 12 – Animatic

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Here’s the animatique for the 12th scene of demo.



The original 6 positions of human figure were drawn in Pencil. That allows us to set timing properly and to get the idea of the motion in general. Then we imported keyframes in Synfig Studio and created smooth motion.

Now, when we ensured what animation is looks smooth enough we could proceed with redraw of original 6 keyframes in detail.

For now there are just three working places. Not a Blender Institute ;), but that should be enough to give a start to the real work.
