What You Will Learn

You will learn how to loop tears to create the illusion of tears streaming down your character's face. This combines slow motion spacing with looping. Your character is acting sad so move the tears as slow as you can. This really helps your audience feel their inner pain. Loop the tear cycle a few times, then copy and paste later during editing.

Why Is This Important?

Storytelling with animation requires basic acting. Conflict and emotions are the core of many stories. Being able to imagine and hypothesize how to animate an emotion is essential for an animator.
Looping a cycle of tears requires careful spacing and timing.
