Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Jumping Action is an 24-pose motion cycle for the DAZ Horse 2 and includes 6 Genesis rider partial poses.

The sequential poses give you a variety of choices for portraying single horses, with or without riders, as well as for jumping herds and racing jockeys. The sequences are ideal for multiple comic book frames. And the cycle is suitable as basic animation key-frames.

The DAZ Horse 2 pose series features a series of horse action and drama for every equestrian adventure imaginable. All motion cycles are based on the stop-motion photography of Eadweard Muybridge.

This series includes basic action-cycles for Walking, Trotting, Cantering, Galloping, and Jumping horses. Each set is also designed to merge with others by transiting from certain key-frames. The horse can go from standing to walking to galloping (trotting and cantering) to jumping. It's a unique presentation of motion poses. There is a lot of latitude for customizing the poses and the combinations.

Jumping Action can be merged into a continuous galloping/jumping cycle. Also the barrier jumps and distance jumps can be merged.

Partial poses to seat riders on a zeroed horse are included for Genesis Basic Male and Female, Genesis V4 and M4, and Genesis V5 and M5. As partial poses they can seat your other Genesis poses on the horse.
