Did you know that you can do pose to pose animation in 3D? And it can turn out GOOD? I've been a believer of the layering method until tonight when Raph Anzovin of Anzovin Studio came in for a guest lecture in the 3D character animation class that I took a couple years ago (I poke my head in every once in a while).
And it looked GOOD. Before now I thought layering was the only way to do 3D animation, but this pose to pose stuff is more up my alley, given my "traditional" background.
And speaking of pose to pose, I'm coming to realize how much of a crutch it is for my hand drawn stuff. My spacing is absolutely terrible still.
....at least I can still work from pose to pose by hand :[
