Short study animating Dinosaurs & working to create a realistic performance!
I recorded some of my process on this shot. I started with a run cycle for the T-rex then on an Animation layer I added the roar and added some variation into the run for the final shot.
I had the same workflow for the raptor. I started with a run cycle then on I put the raptor on a path, altered the speed and path. Finally I baked the animation from the path back onto the rig. Then it was just a matter of clean up and fine tuning.
