Some Useful Animation Tutorials


Lost Mad Soul

I consider myself a student of animation and visual effects, not just limitted to a particular software. I spend a lot of time looking for good reference information and tutorials on a variety of related topics, from creating a specific effect, to better techniques for post production and clean up. I am going to share some of the more resourceful and informative tutorials I find here, for anyone else who would like to view, learn, and expand their skill set or find new information and techniques. None of the tutorials I am linking to are mine.

Here is a great tutorial/behind the scenes video regarding using After Effects to enhance the post production of your animation in a variety of ways. While it focus on hand drawn style 2D animation, these tricks and techniques can easily be applied to 3D animation rendered in passes and composited.
