Learning Anime Studio Pro 10

Video Description

In this Anime Studio Pro 10 training course, expert author Mark Bremmer teaches you about the tools and concepts needed to create professional quality animations. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no prior experience with Anime Studio Pro is required.

You will start with a tour of the interface, getting familiar with the palettes and layout of the program, then jump into learning about the drawing tools. You will learn about drawing organic and compound shapes, basic and advanced masking, and how to draw in 3D. Mark will teach you about bones, such as elbow bones, control levers, and bone locking. This video tutorial will cover animation and special effects, including cycling animation, the walk cycle, motion tracking, and style building. Finally, Mark will take you through a project, starting with setting the background, all the way through to animation and the final render.

Once you have completed this video based training course, you will be fully capable of using Anime Studio Pro 10 to create and animate your own projects for personal or professional use. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
