Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Whether you want to produce short animated clips through to complete productions using Carrara, this course is for you. It covers not only how to accomplish various types of animation in Carrara, it also looks at the artistic considerations of what makes a great animation that can really bring your characters and your story to life! Starting from the basics, the course takes you through the classic 12 Principles of Animation and how to apply these in Carrara, creating walk cycles and lip sync for your characters, various special animation effects and more. All presented by leading Carrara artist Phil Wilkes, the latest in his best-selling line of Carrara tutorials and based on his experience of completing commercial animation projects which have been shown around the world. In addition to over six and a half hours of tutorials which includes as much information and guidance as possible, there are supporting scene files for all animation examples and other valuable working files including a full dynamic hair which can be used with any figure, and a collection of useful NLA Clips to use in your own projects. The tutorials conclude by going through the creation of a complete project, from just a script through storyboarding and other pre-production tasks right through to the final presentation. A copy of the final project with sound and music is included, together with all of the scene files used to create it so you can see how it was all done. If you have ever wanted to tell a story through creating animation with Carrara, this set of tutorials is a must have!

Additional Details

  • Thank you for buying the Animation In Carrara video tutorials.
  • I hope you enjoy these working files. Many of them use Victoria 4 (V4) or Michael 4 (M4) by Daz3D. These are commonly owned figures and you probably already have them. It is possible that when you come to load them, you will need to tell Carrara where the texture maps are for these, particularly if you have them in a non-standard location. The defaults are:
    • C:UsersPublicDocumentsMy DAZ 3D LibraryRuntimeTexturesDAZCharactersMilManM4
    • C:UsersPublicDocumentsMy DAZ 3D LibraryRuntimeTexturesDAZCharactersMilWomV4
  • On some of the scenes, I have also removed any proprietary objects, clothing, etc that I used. These are not critical to using the scene files and you can always substitute your own clothing and scenery to make the scenes your own.
  • Enjoy - and happy rendering!
