Animator and Animation Instructor, Chris Sokalofsky provides a simple and easy approach for breaking down the components for animating a quadruped walk cycle in Maya, and addresses each of the components separately.

Although quadruped’s vary wildly in style, motion, and mechanics, I’ve broken down a basic quadruped walk into a simple and easy to understand approach to how a 4 legged animal walks by breaking it down into components and addressing each of them separately

To Chris’s credit, he always does a great job with these animation tutorials, and I still believe that these are created for his students and class, but they are pretty useful for everyone… So thanks again for that Chris!
