The Course Will Cover:
• Using the basic drawing tools.
• Rigging a character using pegs, bones and deformations.
• Developing an understanding of controling character rigs.
• Setting up and animating various scenes designed to test and explore the challenges and capabilities of Toonboom Harmony.
This course is aimed at individuals working or training to work in the animation industry who wish to gain an understanding of the programme Toonboom Harmony.
The course represents an ideal opportunity for intermediate/experienced animators to upskill, learn software which is becoming increasingly vital to the industry and to increase job opportunities. It would also benefit strong beginners though it should be noted the emphasis will be on learning to use the software for animation and not the teaching of basic animation principles.
