A complete step-by-step course to high-end 2D character animation
We've designed this course to be tailored specifically for aspiring animators, or professional animators transitioning from a different program. Toon Boom Harmony is an incredibly robust professional-grade animation software, and can do pretty much anything in the realm of 2D. Everything from stick figures to Disney-level results. We've brought an amazing 2D animator to take you through this amazing journey, and I truly believe he created one of the best Toon Boom animation courses out there.
What will you learn?
We'll start by going over the Harmony interface and understanding how to work with different display views and how to use the X-sheet like a traditional animator.
We'll go over different ways to import or create artwork for your shot. We'll learn how to create the outline and the fill for our characters, as well as add special effects.
We'll start animating our shot with traditional frame-by-frame animation, going through all the steps from planning the key poses, roughing out the animation, clean-up and coloring.
Rig a Character
After covering the traditional side of 2D animation, we'll use Harmony's advanced rigging tools to bone-rig a character using cutout rigs, puppet rigging and deformation. We'll also see how to set up mouth shapes for automatic lip-syncing.
Finishing a Shot
Through this course you'll see how an entire fully-animated shot is produced. We'll add special effects, camera movement in 3D space, and export the final shot in different formats.
