    the second class Ruben brought in Pixar animator Doug Frankel who did a few short critiques on any animation we brought in and then talked about his approach to 2D animation This past weekend I was able to take a little time off from the new baby and stop by The Learning Center for their Stop Motion Armature building class This class was solely run by Ruben and after a few hours of building going through best practices and seeing the different materials used we ended up with a really cool bi pedal wire armature The main take aways I got from this class were to Make a puppet as light as possible Longevity of a puppet is very important Make sure they are easy for an animator to work with So if this is something you re interested in and in the Bay Area there are still a couple more stop motion classes coming up Here s their upcoming calendar Posted January 28 2013 Author Jake Hawley Comment Post a comment Thumbnails and workflow I love to draw Even though I do almost all of my animation in the computer drawing always helps me plan my shot and clarify my idea Sometimes I ll think up some poses in my head draw them out and then act them out for my reference video This way I can try and work out anything too cliche or to see if my movement is natural enough working these poses in Either way I ll study my reference and do a few more drawings If I m in a hurry I ll just find the key poses in my video reference and drawing directly over the video using a program called Flash Either way no matter how bad the drawings are its always a good process that helps me think a little more detailed about each pose Posted January 18 2013 Author Jake Hawley Comment Post a comment Changing a spline color in Maya Want a fast easy way to help differentiate spline colors in Maya Check this out For instance I ll have 3 or 4 spine controls selected and would like to see which X rotate spline goes with what Then if I change the color of each one this makes it a lot easier to do Usually I ll use different hues of blue so I know the darkest blue is the lowest spine control and the lightest blue is the top most control Ok on with it 1 Select the spline you want to change in the GE graph editor Then select Curves in the GE menu bar and go down to Spreadsheet 2 This brings up the Attribue Editor with the Anim Curve Attributes opened up Check the Use Curve Color box 3 Then click on the Curve Color box to bring up the color picker and select whatever color you want to use 4 Marvel in how your spaghetti mess of splines can now be more festive

  • Some stop motion projects — Jake Hawley
    already 6 weeks old For both projects I used Dragonframe stop motion software which I love and After Effects to cut and color correct everything Dragonframe is super easy to get up and running and a very clean interface When you buy the software it comes with an external number pad that is extremely useful This becomes pretty crucial when you can t be right next to your computer to capture a frame If you re just using a trail version it lasts for 30 days and you can only capture 50 frames in one take but you can do as many takes as you need Check out the video of Hermione below and a few behind the scenes shots as well Claire did the hard part of animating Hermione I just clicked the capture button Quick shot of our set up for the baby stop motion video And here s the set up for a project I was involved with at work Newer Sketching with markers Older Walt Disney Museum Animation Workshops Posted February 27 2013 Author Jake Hawley Tags stop motion dragonframe animation Blog Life drawing the first time in forever about a year ago Moleskin Drawings June

  • Changing a spline color in Maya — Jake Hawley
    and would like to see which X rotate spline goes with what Then if I change the color of each one this makes it a lot easier to do Usually I ll use different hues of blue so I know the darkest blue is the lowest spine control and the lightest blue is the top most control Ok on with it 1 Select the spline you want to change in the GE graph editor Then select Curves in the GE menu bar and go down to Spreadsheet 2 This brings up the Attribue Editor with the Anim Curve Attributes opened up Check the Use Curve Color box 3 Then click on the Curve Color box to bring up the color picker and select whatever color you want to use 4 Marvel in how your spaghetti mess of splines can now be more festive Newer Thumbnails and workflow Older Just walkin around Posted January 9 2013 Author Jake Hawley Tags Maya Animation Blog Life drawing the first time in forever about a year ago Moleskin Drawings June 2014 to Feb 2015 about a year ago More Moleskin sketches from around London about a year ago Few more marker drawings and other
