How to animate a jump – A great breakdown of the animation process

Check out this animation tutorial on how to animate a jump in 3D. It’s a nice and fairly succinct tutorial that doesn’t go too much into the nitty gritty of how to make each pose perfect but still gives a great overview of the general animation process that most animators will follow when animatiing a shot.

The tutorial is nonspecific to the software used and all of the tools used (graph editor, timeline, character rig etc) should all have equivalents in all 3D animation software.
