Not that it's news, but I keep thinking about this post by David Anthony Gibson talking about the shots he animated for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. And that's the rule, if I go looking for it more then once or keep thinking about it, slap it up on my blog so I can track it down at some later date, if I need to.
"we always tried to have quick transitions that had really long settles. One way I remember our animation director always saying it was: do your move and get 97% of the way to your final pose and then feather out that last 3% of the move over 10-15 frames."
*makes me think of that SplineDr.'s post about people needing to know more then just animating
Oh, he has a new post
