Edmund Mcmillens Mechanics of Animation
So today i have been studying how to get to grips of Edmund's animation mechanics and how he makes his character's move :D.
I just simply downloaded a video of gameplay from "The Binding Of Isaac" on youtube and converted it so i could play it on quicktime to watch it frame by frame. So i picked a few things from the bunch like a few enemies and the "Troll Bomb" plus explosion. I sketched out the character basic outlines and numbered the frames of the animation too.
I found this experiment rather useful to be honest and i will probably research a few more of his stuff too :D
