What will you learn?

Key Concepts

We'll start by understanding how Adobe Character Animator works. We'll go over the interface, and learn how layer names and tags work, as well as the triggers, physics and custom behaviors.

Face Rig

We'll learn the process of rigging the character's face, including advanced eye techniques, mouth and lip-sync, jaw animation, head turns, and even create custom art styles for use with the Characterizer feature.

Body Rig

After finishing the facial rig, we'll cover the body mechanics. We'll learn how to create animation triggers for body actions, add a breathing behavior, setup a walk cycle, and use magnets for interacting with objects.

Animating a Shot

We'll cover the entire process of creating a fully animated shot, through working in passes to record and adjust lip-sync, animate different parts of the body separately, changing backgrounds, adding particles and exporting a finished scene.

Advanced Tips & Tricks

We dedicated an entire section of the course to go over some advanced techniques such as using a fader, rigging a 3D model, animating particles, adding an auto blink, adding a wiggler effects and creating parallax for the background.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the program’s learning curve.

Animation training can get expensive.

Animation courses can be pricey, often in the thousands of dollars. These programs cover entire skill sets, including many topics you'll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start animating right away.
