In this video, learn about plotting arc paths to establish timing and spacing.
- If for all we do any of the in-betweens, … it's really important to plot the arcs. … And this is a thing that we used to do back in the day … on paper, with a clean sheet of paper, … over the actual animation drawings. … So the equivalent in Photoshop will be to make a new group … and inside this group, a new layer for our arcs. … So let's name the group arcs and the layer top, … for the top of the body. … And it really helps if you do this on frame one, … because when I right click here, … I'm going to apply a color to this, go to the color overlay, … make it nice and bright and blue, … or some nice bright color anyway, and then right click … on this and make the color blue that way we can't miss it. … So now when I begin drawing, it'll really stand out. … So I won't get lost. … I know I'm drawing on the right layer now too, … I won't accidentally draw across the body and wreck a lot of … work. … So here we go. … First things first is make like a little X and just a little … line going, that's number one. …
