Character Walk Cycle Tutorial by Brendan Body
Autodesk Maya animation Tutorial you will learn how to create a walk cycle. In animation, a walk cycle is a series of frames in sequence that loop to create an animation of a walking character. The walk cycle is looped over and over, thus having to avoid animating each step again.
This is a sped-up recording of me animating a walk cycle in Autodesk Maya. I created the video as a tutorial for the animation students of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. At this point in the course the students have already created a walk cycle using drawn animation so I aim to show a process that follows on from their traditional training. However, I hope this video will also be helpful to other animation students or anyone that is interested in learning more about the computer animation process.
