After receiving several requests, I’ll be picking up from the first ever tutorial I made, using the same character rig and teaching you how to build a walk cycle by breaking it down into it’s main keyframes Contacts, Ups, Downs and Pass Positions. Apologies if the video seems slow, there are no shortcuts when it comes to character animations!
I unfortunately did not save the rig from the first tutorial, I had to re-rig the character and I also used the new version of Duik to do so which means it may be slightly different.

Here is a speed rig using the new version of Duik, it’s even easier to use and offers even more control, I highly recommend checking it out!

Purchase Motion 2 here: http://www.mtmograph.com/motion/ Please do not find illegal versions of Matt Jylkka’s code, he puts a lot of effort into making his products and deserves the small amounts he asks his consumers to pay.
*Note the cycle I make in this video is not at all the best, usually when I animate characters I spend a lot longer than half an hour but this will give you a good idea as to how it is achieved.
