• Learn to walk in Minutes
    by William "proton" Vaughan - NewTek LightWave 3D Evangelist

    Proton: Hello all, I just recently learned a new technique for setting up a walk cycle during my visit to Mexico City and thought I would share it with everyone. Although this sample was created in LightWave 3D 7.5, the same technique can be used for any 3D program. The video shows the entire process played back at twice the speed it was created. Here are a few key elements to remember:

    • Complete walk cycle frames: 0-36
    • Frame 0 and 36 are the same
    • Frame 18 is the exact opposite of frame 0/36
    • Frames 9 and 27 are opposite of each other

    This should get you started on a good walk cycle but is by no means a final animation. Be sure to add more detail to the walk to improve the motions.Good Luck and see you on the forums!
