I'm finally at the stage in production where I'm putting together the walk cycles for my main characters (actually, wrote in very few walks altogether and thought it would be smarter to get those out of the way first since I've never done them before.)
I'm using Richard William's book as well as a few good online tutorials as guides and just experimenting right now.
Question: what's a good frame rate? I've read that 15 fps is good, but I've seen some tutorials that use 24fps. I've seen a couple of tutorials that use 12, but that seems kinda slow to me. And 24 seems like it might be tons more work. My stuff is just going to go online (I'm animating mainly in Flash, doing post in AE and will probably save the end result as a streaming quicktime file.) Originally, I thought I'd release it ultimately (if people like it) on DVD, but have decided to solely focus on online (and mobile downloads.) Is 15fps fast enough?
Also, any walk cycle tips?
Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
