Walk cycle week - Duik.



This week, i focused on making a walk cycle using the Plugin Duik. A free bone rigging tool for After Effects.

After alot of trial and error with rigging, I managed to make a walk cycle that looks convincing. I especially like the bendy legs, but they could use some more work to flow like the arms.

The main challenge was convincing the feet and legs to be touching the floor, which is evident from reflection in the shadow.

Although some difficulties with the plugin, I enjoyed the learning experience and i cant wait to apply it differently to other characters of different shapes and sizes.
