Do you remember this documentary about Richard Williams in Soho Square timing out motion of people and animals around him? Amazing wasn’t it? This is where this project originates from.
Being able to time out an action just by looking at it can only be done by people with years of experience but with some training you could probably do the same much quicker.
In my quest to gain a better understanding of timing and to share my research with fellow animators, I finally created a video version of my Animation Beat Box.
This video is a beat box that hit a beep sound every 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14 frames. Each sequence lasts for 1 minute (1500 frames)
Click on the pic below and enjoy.
oops I forgot to give credit for the timing examples to my friend Andy Knight and some notes he took from a conference hosted by Eric Goldberg back in the days ;-)
