"Among my favourite books, Timing for Animation (Focal Press), by Harold Whitaker and John Halas ranks high. Originally written in 1981 (and newly revised in 2009) this slim volume presents a thorough analysis of the many kinds of timing issues one encounters in producing a narrative style animated film. Timing on Bar Sheets, Movement and Caricature, Newton's Laws of Motion, Objects Thrown Through the Air, Timing a Slow Action, Timing a Fast Action, Timing to Suggest Weight and Force... these are only a few of the many chapters included. A thoroughly compiled manual, it's an old and current favourite."--Animation World Network
Timing for animation is a great book and works well when you're using illusion of life or the animators survival kit.
Published originally in 1981, Timing for Animation is updated and available again and it still remains a solid reference book for animators.
Several concepts are explored in great detail, like timing to suggest weight and force, and how objects move through space and over time.
This book is invaluable if you want to learn the basics of animation. Timing is a very important principle.Published 1 month ago by KDBUG
