Master the fundamentals of animating quadruped walk cycles in Maya
In the workshop, which comprises over three hours of video training, Cunnane sets out the fundamental principles of animating a convincing walk cycles for four-legged animals and fantasy creatures.

Using a free dragon character rig created by Truong CG Artist, Cunnane sets up a basic walk cycle in Maya, before animating the dragon’s wings, neck and head to create a convincing creature animation.

He also provides breakdowns of foot and body movement and explains how to take a final walk cycle and build a new animation for use in production.

Topics covered include the importance of importing a rig as a proxy, using Maya’s Reference Editor to keep the scene organised, baking, motion tracking, and using animation layers to add secondary motion.
