Understanding the Wave Principle and How to Apply it to Animation

TipTuts explores the wave principle and how it applies to animation.

The discipline of animation is a study, as well as a practice. While there are many principles associated with animation, some of them are not as well-known as others. In this new tutorial, TipTuts’ Matthew Fryer explores the wave principle, also known as the beauty corve, and how it can apply to animation.

Fryer talks about the classic “S” & “Z” shaped curves and how they can form looping, natural movement regardless of your 2D or 3D animation’s complexity.
