Hybrid Workflow - LIVE 3D Animation Course

Learning how to take advantage of the current technology and make it work for you instead of working against it. 3d animation can be technologically intimidating, and with so many different options on how to work, it can also be very overwhelming to deal with. In this course, Kevin will give you a systematic approach that includes the old school ways that 2d animators used and the new workflows that take advantage of the computer and make the program work for you.   

Students will learn:

  • How to mix pose to pose and layered animation simultaneously in blocking and polish.

  • Helpful scripts that speeds up workflow.

  • How to use maya efficiently:

  • maximize graph editor

  • anim layers

  • different approaches to blocking depending on the needs of the shot


What our students got to say about "Hybrid Workflow"

“I would love to send back my experience. Regarding Kevin's hybrid Workflow, The class was overall a deep learning experience! A lot of really small tricks that I have now adopted. I would consider this class as a great supplementary class for both beginners and advanced animators. For beginners, this class will show how to work efficiently and take advantage of everything Maya and aimbot can offer. While for advanced animators, Kevin's workflow can add so much to an experienced animator arsenal. Kevin as a mentor is great! he's very down to earth and easy to interact with. In the class, Kevin can keep the interest high during his demos and the way he explains his tools are very accurate and simple. I highly recommend anyone to take his workflow class and if he does mentorship! I can tell he will be an amazing mentor.”

“The Hybrid workflow is a very good course as I thought It would be, I needed more insight into a proper workflow, setting up a shot and to work on my speed, and this course was able to help me with that. Kevin was a very good teacher, he knows exactly what he’s talking about and was able to answer all of our questions thoroughly and correctly. Kevin taught me a lot of new tricks I did not know and more about certain things in animation and maya I already knew. I will be taking his new class in January (if its within my budget) lol . Thank you animawarriors for providing this course, it was definitely something I needed and the price…was right!! ”

“Hybrid workflow was a super informative course, Kevin gives super clear demos to explain the concepts behind his approach. I have already implemented many of the tips / tricks he gave into my own personal workflow and will be revisiting the lectures as they are packed with useful and actionable information. I would totally recommend it!”
