Anticipation - Animating with Spine #7

January 19th, 2023

Welcome to the seventh video of our Animating with Spine tutorial series! This time we cover anticipation – one of the most important animation principles, especially for games. Almost every animation needs some form of anticipation. It’s a fairly simple concept to grasp and it can be applied to both simple and complex animations. But what is it exactly?

In this video you will learn how and why to add anticipation to your animations, as well as how to compromise for game animation requirements.

Use the provided Spine project to do the exercise in the video and hone your animation skills. Share what you did with us on the Spine forum!

Happy animating!
