3D Animation Tutorial Goes Wild

Canadian animator Nathan Hibberd shows what happens when good Maya animations go bad.

In the tradition of Chuck Jones' Duck Amuck and Rabbit Rampage, in which Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny battle with their animators, check out this great short, in which a 3D animator deals with a hilariously uncooperative animation rig inside Autodesk Maya.

The video starts off looking like your average walk cycle tutorial, but trust us, it’s not. At 0:35 things start to go horribly, horribly wrong:

Animating a Jump Tutorial Part #269 was created by Canadian animator Nathan Hibberd, who currently serves as Series Animation Supervisor for Endangered Species and Slugterra at Nerd Corps Entertainment.
