Copy the Pose on frame 1 by Ctrl+C and Paste it flipped on frame 12 by Ctrl+Shift+V, I did that and its super easy
And BTW I don't understand why people don't like this, this was an easy and informative tutorial for me, just sayin.

@Manas Athalye thanks!!!
6th June 2021 - 00:05
@Manas Athalye I tied doing that but it made the character go back to its original location. How can I copy and paste the pose flipped without copying the z location? Thanks in advance :)

Hi i love theese tutorials.. but my problem is, that in every course you cant see what shortcuts are used. And that can lead to some confusions. Hope you in the future will share key shortcuts. Either way thanks for great work, i really appreciate it!
24th November 2020 - 15:15
@David Delgado At what time did you not know the Shortcut? Or is it every time?
25th November 2020 - 17:36
@David Delgado good call, i will next time, thanks!
4th January 2021 - 20:58
@Pablo Fournier Yeah shortcut overlays are VERY usefull ^^

Hello ! Blender is an Awesome Tool ! I really appreciate that ! But , it's very hard to understand the tools of animation . I think that you guys , should explain every detail that you use to animate the characters . WE, from the otherside of the screen get so lost and confuse, not knowing how you get at some points . Again , Blender is a Aweome tool ! But we need tutorials more detailed and clear . I'm from Brazil and here , we do not know how to move foward or backyard in blender , since that there are very little tips and tutorials that really teaches us the things well .

*@Paulo Mendes* i advice that you watch the Blender fundamentals course at (https://cloud.blender.org/p/blender-fundamentals/) before watching any other course in the website to understand blender even better
25th November 2020 - 17:38
@Paulo Mendes this tutorials were suppose to be more explaining the animation process, not the actual how to, for that as they said the fundamentals will help you better, hope that help! thanks!!!
23rd December 2020 - 16:07
@Pablo Fournier I can agree with this. Having some fundamentals helps to follow this course nicely. No need to see shortcuts.
The content is really great.
I practice after every video and it's super fun.

This is the best animation tutorial ever. Learning so much right now! Love this :)
30th January 2021 - 15:16
Awesome......learning so much
17th August 2020 - 10:32
@karan Sharma will try better next time! thanks!
23rd December 2020 - 16:08
@Pablo Fournier This is not Youtube. This is golden if someone really wants to learn from real animators. Thanks for the hard work on this.
20th November 2021 - 10:54
Great tutorial series, thanks! One suggestion - while being in Viewport Shading mode could you turn on the shadow and outline? It would help to eye track a position of the feet on the floor. Thanks!

07:35 "copy pose" how to find it ? Excellent overall !
10th May 2021 - 09:08
@Marc Pechaud copy pose is just ctrl+c, ctrl+v to paste it in the same bone, ctrl+shift+v to paste it in the opposite bone
6th June 2021 - 00:15
@Pablo Fournier I tried copying the exact pose, it worked, but it made the character go back to its original location, when the character is supposed to be working forward. How can I copy pose without copying its z location - so it can walk forward? One last thing, is it possible to use this walk cycle to copy the path of a curve? Or do I have to make it walk in place? Thank you!
7th June 2021 - 09:27
@coolyan2016 is possible that is happening because you are copying also the pose from the root/master controller that moves all the character, just kill that key and the character wont be in the original location
7th June 2021 - 09:29
@coolyan2016 i think you can attach it to a curve, don't remember how to do it now, but in this case you need to create the cycle "in place" so the character wont move forward when you create the cycle
8th June 2021 - 02:19
@Pablo Fournier Ohh okay, I think I get it now, thank you!
7th January 2022 - 17:24
It would be good to have a tutorial on setting up the skeleton and constraints (in particular the IK constraints). With a full explanation of the entire rig. I think this is an essential part of doing animation, so I'm not sure why we'd only see the keyframing aspects.
1st February 2022 - 14:59
@Stephen Brown Hi! this is just an animation tutorial on my animation process, there are other rigging tutorials like the cloud rig. Anyway this is a really simple rig
4th May 2022 - 17:21
How to ensure the character is walking forward at a constant speed? Also if I am animating for video game, is it better to animate the walk cycle on the spot or make the character walk forward ? Please advise
9th May 2022 - 15:01
@David Wong Hi!!!
I think for video game is better to do it on the spot.
And for checking that the character is walking at constant speed, you just need to calculate the long of the step and put the keys in linear when they are needed
9th December 2022 - 18:02
help me.how to use switch ik to fk? because when I use keframe constant interpolation it works fine, but when I replace it with bezier interpolation, the animation doesn't match using constant interpolation
12th December 2022 - 12:30
@Endi just do the switch in one frame, that wont make it animated (only in subframes)
12th December 2022 - 16:05
@Pablo Fournier Cool! Thank you. i will try
