Learn how to create follow through using expressions.

If you're looking to add polish to your animations you're going to want to learn as much as possible about the principles of animation. In this tutorial Joey is going to show you how to animate follow through. You may have already seen one of his lessons on this subject, but this time you'll be doing things a bit differently. Instead of doing everything by hand you'll be learning how to use a very simple expression to get automatic follow though on a lot of your animations. We want to give a quick shout out to Matt Nabosheck, the very talented Designer / Illustrator and good buddy of Joey's that created the Boston Terrier named Steadman that Joey uses in this tutorial. Check out his work in the Resources tab.
