Blocking Plus Workflow - Part 3 (Breakdowns)

    So you’ve blocked in your poses for your animation - now what? You could hit spline, but you can already imagine the cringey, floaty movement that will come out of it. How about taking another pass at your blocking and getting it to blocking plus?

    If you’re not sure where to start, take a look at instructor Jean-Luc Delhougne’s blocking plus workflow in Maya (from our Body Mechanics animation course). He takes a blocking pass of a jump from basic poses to a well-timed blocking plus pass with arcs and natural movement. In Part 3, he fills in missing information in his blocking animation by adding breakdowns and controlling how his character will move from pose to pose.

If you missed Part 1 (Timing), take a look here:

Part 2 (Arc tracking) is available here:

    These are the kind of skills you can learn in our online animation classes and animation workshops. If you’re interested in 3D animation programs, check us out at our website link below!
