Hey /3/, I need your advice.I already learned animation principles myself, I know Maya basics and I'm capable of making simple animations (jumping, walk/run cycle) that don't look terribly bad. Are online animation courses worth paying for at this point? If yes then which ones do you recommend and why? If not then what skills do I absolutely must develop to get job in vidya industry?
animation mentor is considered the most successful one, there are a few others you might want to check, google them.>what skills do I absolutely must develop to get job in vidya industry?at the end of each college project, animators are required to make a short film.this usually include walking,running,facial expressions and object animation (mechanical).you also have to know basic lightning and basic rendering and scene management.
