…that ate the Goat that my father bought for two zuzim. Chad Gadya
What happens next isn’t going to be pretty. Chad Gadya
Does it make sense? No. Chad Gadya.
Working on a cat to eat the goat. No, cats don’t eat goats, but that’s what it says in the song.
Most natural movements – runs, walks, gallops – follow wave patterns. But it’s very difficult for me to analyze such movements so I can recreate them in animation.
For this experiment I worked backwards, first creating the simple wave movements (above) and then combining them into a gallop (below).
The legs are swinging back and forth as well as waving.
I struggle to animate even a simple wave; it does not come intuitively to me. I found a way to remember with the letters C-Z-D-S. The curves of those letters resemble the 4 keyframes of a wave loop. If I can remember those 4 keyframes, I can tween from one to another by hand or in this case using Flash’s shape tweening.
A little work-in-progress from Seder-Masochism. Sing along to the animated gif!
