Example text

When dealing with very heavy objects, therefore, the director must allow plenty of time to start, stop or change their movements, in order to make their weight look convincing. The animator, for their part, must see that plenty of force is applied to the cannonball to make it start, stop or change direction. Light objects have much less resistance to change of movement and so behave very differently when forces act on them. A toy balloon (Fig. B) needs much less time to start it moving. The flick of a finger is enough to make it accelerate quickly away.

Therefore, for an animator, the timing of an action is the same as deciding the number and spacing of the drawings or key poses needed to make up the action. How many drawings are needed, for example, to make a character point his finger off screen? It is necessary to know a number of things to answer this. Is the character slow or quick in his reactions? Is he pointing, for example, to a distant view or is he pointing to warn somebody that a car is about to run him down? Is it a full arm movement or a more restricted finger movement?

He or she moves frames closer or further apart, and augments or ‘pluses’ poses to complete the animated performance. Like in the old technique of rotoscope, where the live actor’s movement was traced over, the motion capture actor provides scale, staging and basic performance. But to be used to its greatest effect, the subtleties and nuances have to be gone over and enhanced by a key-frame animator. 23 Timing for Animation FIGURE 12 Animation consists of sequences of weightless drawings. The success of animation on the screen depends largely on how well these drawings give the impression of reacting in an exaggerated way when weight and forces are made to act upon them.
