What You Will Learn
You will discover the preparation required before animation can take place. The way scenes are rigged, what is NOT shown in the camera, and all the poses and tidbits related to the action are displayed before we finish the animation.
Why It Is Important
To see the sizing and layout behind the scenes in our system will give new animators a respect for planning. This step is the result of applying the S.L.T. acronym. The size and layout of the props and backgrounds show how Long shots, Medium shots, and Close-ups are accomplished. The area where new animators struggle the most is how big to make things and how to engineer props to be animated. This recipe will go a long way in managing expectations when assembling scenes for a movie.
