In part 2 of this 3 part series, I'll show you how to animate a walk cycle for a character in After Effects! A walk cycle is one of the most essential animations you can create for a character, and can express a surprising amount of personality. You'll learn all the basics needed to start designing and animating your own walk cycles.
We'll be using the character rigs created in part 1, but if you didn't make your own you can use one of mine. All of my character PSDs and rigged After Effects projects are available for you to download in the Project Description.
