head turning ears overlap using 2d slider

Post by Talwag » Wed Dec 19, 2018 1:32 pm

Hi
I'm working on a head turning for a character I am animating using the awesome 2d slider connector.
I'm trying to make the head turn from looking straight to the camera to looking to 90 degrees the side.
I want the ears layers to kinda change their hierarchy in order to make one ear in front the head and the other behind it.
is there a way doing it with duik connector?

Thanks
Tal

Yes,
You can just duplicate the layer for the ears, animate their opacities, and connect them as any other property for the turn ;)

Just make sure to have the same duration for all animated properties of the turn (they all must have a first and last keyframe at the same time), you'll probably have to add a keyframe at the start and the end on these opacities.
