The Legend of Korra fighting study. (THIS WAS NOT TRACED. FULL FRAME BY FRAME REMAKE)
This was an interesting one. I decided to really sit down and look at some interesting shots from The Legend of Korra, I learned a lot about the camera and how they control their frames in fighting sequences. So heres what I learned.
1) The camera works on 1’s while the actual characters are played on 2’s (Figured out that one by my buddy Parimak explaining it)
2) They don’t necessarily have a preset frame rate for their smears. By that I mean they sometimes put their smears on 1s, 2s, and sometimes even 3s. Which is actually pretty fascinating, but because the camera is always running on 1s; it really masks the appearance of motion when their is none at all for at least a few frames
3) When they cut to the next scene they hold the action of the character for at least 4-5 frames. I’m guessing why they do this is to let the eye catch up and absorb information of the new scene before continuing the straightforward action.
4) I HAVE A LOT TO LEARN…..
Overall a very humbling experience in the ways of animation, If I was to ever teach a class on animation. Homework would have to do with this kinda practice. Sitting down and meticulously study each frame and try to recreate it. For one it expands a lot of knowledge in motion and just anatomy in general. If any of you are interested in animation I entice you to try this practice out, you will improve way faster.
