Serious about animation? Look elsewhere,
This review is from: Timing for Animation (Paperback)
I'm a professional animator and have been reading up on the art of animation recently to refresh my memory on the principles.
I bought this book with a view to simply reading as much as i possibly could on the subject but Timing for Animation seems to occupy an awakward gap. It introduces you to the principles of animation (giving some admittedly good examples) but doesn't attempt to actually explain them.
I therefore presume it's aimed at the true beginner, but it leaves me wondering what the point is.
Why buy this book that seems to say 'here's a principle you'll need to know so go look it up' when The Animator's Survival Kit' introduces the principle AND explains it?
