Walk Cycles


Biomotion Lab 1If you are trying to learn how to make a natural looking walk cycle, Joeri points us to this site, Biomotion Lab. Biomotion Lab has created a real time walk cycle model where you can adjust the various parameters such as male / female; heavy/light; nervous/relaxed, happy/sad.

In addition, you can rotate the model on the Z axis as well as add lines between the marker points. I also like to make copies of the walk cycle creations for future reference using Cam Studio

  1. That'll come in handy for me a lot!

    Why is the male/female thing a slider? Is it possible to be sort of male? lol

  2. roofoofighter on

    Because there are differing degrees of masculinity & femininity. Some guys act more feminine, some females act more masculine than average.

    Of course, I am 100% masculine...

  3. I consider a males movement to originate from his chest, while a females to originate from her hips when animating. I guess it's just what you want to get across... will be interesting to see what the slider tweaks :)
