Working with Keyframes on DUIK

Post by alexisb » Mon Sep 17, 2018 1:50 pm

Hi Guys,

I am new to animation and moving with DUIK. I would just like to ask you how I can use this interface to do keyframe animation? (ex. making the guy play guitar) Is there any tutorial online that explains this?

Attaching a reference

Many thanks

Duik brings some tools to make animation a bit more user friendly in After Effects, and does not completely replace After Effects keyframes; you'll have to animate in Ae as usual, and you may use Duik tools to be quickier with the adjustment of interpolations, trajectories, etc.

To learn how the tools of Duik work, you can have a look at the user guide.
