    Easing habits/Pivot habits

    Do you have any habits when it comes to pivot?

    Is there a certain joint that MUST be moved before anything?


    I tend to move the legs, then the arms.

    You make too many threads






    I move everything throughout the animation, then the final step is to come back and move the neck/head joint to make sure it fits with the rest.

    The first thing I move on a stickfigure is the orange center dot, then the legs, and then upperbody. Last thing I end up doing is moving the BG (thats if I am using camera movements).

    My newest habit is I don't ease as much, I just keep all the joints flowing. It seems to be working pretty well for me.

    I usually animate shit that doesn't have flow, and that's fast paced.
    It seems to work out, though. Cause people usually like my animations.

    I always check foot placement first, before I move the other things.

    I have a habit of animating really badly, but the first thing i usually move is the torso, then arms, etc...

    D: I hate easing...
    It looks cool sumtimes but i hate it. Although its a principle, where you could alter to your style like Fluent, I still hate it.
