A quick project using some prebuilt .psd graphics from a tutorial. First time I’ve used the puppet tool, starch and puppet mask. The animation uses pins on each limb, the torso and head which created a mesh over the character and then this was animated using key frames. I found this process surprisingly easy and quite enjoyable. When complete motion blur was added to the man and banana and it was rendered in h.264 format. A little bit of work needs doing with the timing and motion – although I attempted to use easy-ease between some key frames to try to add a more natural movement. For a first attempt I’m quite happy with the result.
