Character Animator Tips & Tricks (August 2017)

Published on Aug 1, 2017

Fresh back from San Diego Comic-Con 2017, we look at a great full body swap character from the community and an NDI-supported streaming option for PC called VMIX. Then we try out the Elgato Stream Deck to make custom heart, flamethrower, and head opening key triggers for Evans the Robot. Finally we do a recap of Comic-Con, including a closer look at the free superhero example puppet Crimson and how she does frame-by-frame arm animations (puppet warp in Photoshop) and lighting effects (simple cycle layers animations with the add blending mode).
