Are you ready to take your animations to the next level? In this class we are going to explore how to use effective spacing to animate in Autodesk Maya. Spacing describes how far something moves or changes shape from one frame to the next. By planning your the spacing of your shots you can speed up your workflow and to add a professional level of appeal to your animations.

Spacing is a great skill for new animators to master and it is a easy way to begin learning the ins and outs of Maya. Students with some animation experience can also join on to improve their spacing skills.
