How to Create a Walking Animation with Anime Studio

With a character drawn and a skeletal structure set, creating a walking animation in Anime Studio is a pretty easy process. Here I show you how to keyframe your bones and move the character across the screen.

    When I advance to frame 1 to create a starting position using the bone movement tool
    the bone (and bonded limb) breaks away from the character horizontally instead of letting me position it correctly. This does not happen at frame 0. I bonded the bones to the layers. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Robby Crawford says:

    This helpful, but how do you do it so the character walks vertically ie. from far to near?

  5. KidKeks says:

    How can i start a move for example at frame 40 so that he dont start to move his arm at frame one (sorry 4 my bad english I’m German^^)

  6. Hrishit Chouhan says:

    thanks that is really useful for me

  7. Juriasu Kun says:

    When i use manipulate bones, it’s only the bones who moves not the character. Why?

  8. Alif Rizi says:

    This was a. Piece of shit, this video doesn’t show me what do I have to press, its just as well talking, dislike!

  9. Kyle Lazorko says:

    My question: how do you make the walking even? Because in this tutorial and in my own animations the character starts off slow, speeds up and then slows down again before stopping. How do I just make the animation the same speed throughout?

  10. ROBY says:

    Thanks for this tutorial ! It helped me much! :)

    Hello, I am looking for someone to make a video of an incident I had in 2007. I would like to bring it to life to share my story. Can you email me at deputy urena at yahoo so we can talk about how much it would cost. I’m guessing the video will be about five minutes long with narration.

  18. Allen Warner says:

    Great video, but wouldn’t it have been easier to have a reference video of a person walking behind the character to get the walk down; or pull over a character from character wizard an use it’s walk cycle as a reference for walking (version 8 pro series?) I ask because I am lazy, and want to do this as easy as I can.

  26. George Ursachi says:

  27. realparmesan says:

    Is there an onion skin tool in this program? I want to draw my animations free hand and i just ordered the program without thinking about it. I haven’t seen it used yet, and its making me pretty nervous. Can someone tell me if there is one or if there isn’t?

  28. Conrad Guthman says:

  33. MrLaxdude89 says:

    I’m really lazy, I have knees on a lot of my characters, but i’m not gonna use em’, it looks awkward when they walk

  34. Princsuko1 says:

    I have a question…. When I bone my charachter, only the bones move but the charachter is staying…what should I do?

  35. TheReptile124 says:

    This should be helpful.

  36. Dumitru Nemțuc says:

    I read it, but I don’t get what you’re trying to say.My intention wasn’t to insult in some way the video, if that’s what you think.Not at all.A tutorial should be made to teach techniques.With keyframes and bones you can make a walking animation, but you can do many other things as well.

  37. LembidiZ A Yahong Do Kom says:

    Read the title dude -..-

  38. Emil Steilsson says:

    do you have a video on how to add bones to a character

  39. Marii Burton says:

  43. Raj Mistry says:

    before this tutorial i randomly watched, i thought animating would take a LOOONG time like 10 days for 5 minutes. now i realize 5 minutes of an animation with this software would take you about a day if you animate the whole day

  44. DJPERSON1998able says:

  54. V4ka1 says:

    Not really the best? this is the worst shittiest tutorial i’ve ever seen, plus i hate his drawing style so much!!

  55. DrGenisi says:

    It’s not really the best walking animation. You could make it much better if you spent more time on it because right now it just looks like he’s floating and randomly moving his legs about.

  61. TIKPD says:

  62. ASDSnowBeam says:

    Try goanimate(it’s a website).

    His legs doesn’t go through the floor because there is no floor. By your logic, he would be floating in space somewhere since there is no floor, ceiling, or background.

    well, a tutorial is meant to show you tehniques.If you watch this tutorial you’ll know how to make a person walk . NOYou’ll know how to manipulate bones, create keyframes (and what he did, I won’t watch this)But here are some tips: -create a horizontal floor (a line) and you’ll see that his legs would go into the floor-you should fix that by creating some keyframes on every step for the main bone(main bone) and make the body go up and down (yes, we humans go up-down when walking)
