What You Will Learn

You will learn to animate in super-slow motion (SloMo). You will make a smooth slow motion action of your character saying, "NO!" as if something bad is about to happen and the character is calling for a stop to something bad.

Why Is This Important?

The tendency is to move a character and take five or six pictures to slow down the motion. But the result is a choppy, strobe effect. What we want is a closely spaced, frame-by-frame spacing. Beginners rarely get this right without a recipe sheet. To to give SloMo a go!
