How to Create a Rubber Hose-Style Walk With Cavalry

Nick Ritter shows how to create a simple rubber hose-style walk cycle using Cavalry.

Cavalry is pretty great for procedural and data-driven animation. It also has some built-in tools that you can use for character work, like the Rubber hose tool. This new tutorial from Nick Ritter shows how easy it is to create the kind of bendy-limbs in Cavalry that you either have to work at or pay for with After Effects.

Ritter keeps this tutorial to the basics, just creating a simple body and legs. The principles and techniques, however, can apply when working with any character.
