Hello and welcome to the second Eurobricks brickfilming tutorial. This one isn't a tutorial on how to make a brickfilms as much as a tecnique to use in your films. In order to make this work you will need to know how to make animation. Here is a free tutorial about how to do just that. Anyway, without further ado, I present to you:
Walking at 15fps
Ok, so you know how to animate, but now you want to learn what to animate. In the general brickfilm there will be some walking so this is a good method to memorise. And remember, quality walking is something that could be the difference between an average film and one that sticks in your head.
And to demonstrate - Eurobricks's own fantastic SlyOwl!
To make your subject walk further, just repeat these steps until the subject gets where they are going. There can be multiple subjects in one shot, but keep on paper what step you are on for each subject or you will get confused.
As I was taking the screenshots I prepared a little demo animation for you. I made it by following my example exactly and doing the whole thing a second time.
Note: I only had 1 light to work with here so that is the reason for the jumpy light. If you follow this correctly you shouldn't have this issue.
Now you know how to make a minifig walk, see this Video Conversion tutorial on how to convert video.
