Course Overview

About this Course:

Hi Mark Diaz here for 2DAnimation101 dot com. In this tutorial I am going to explain to you how to animate anything you want using the Animankenstein Formula and any animation software you like. For this course I will be using CrazyTalk Animator 3.

The first thing you need to start animating is get a reference. For my case I will use this line test of some awesome martial art kicks. Then in CrazyTalk Animator 3 I import the character already rigged and ready to be animated. Then I open YouTube to see the first pose. And I position my character like that. Then I count how many frames I need to move the play head so my animation has the exact same timing as the reference I am copying from.

Then I see the character in the anticipation for the first kick and I duplicate that pose in CrazyTalk moving the bones of my character as needed.

Then I check the kick in my reference and duplicate that pose in crazy talk. And so on. It is super simple all you have to do is check each of the poses measure the number of frames you need between poses and duplicate those poses in any animation software you like.

You can even do this frame by frame with pencil and paper just like I did this pencil test copying the kicks from an anime character fighting with another character.

Easy enough right?

All you need to do for each pose is:

  • Check the reference
  • Count the number of frames between each pose
  • Pose your character exactly as in the reference
  • You will have the in-between frames created automatically for you thanks to the interpolation feature inside CrazyTalk Animator 3.


  • And then you end up with an animation like this.
