more on cycles...

If you thought cycles were hard, look what these guys have to deal with. This is pretty a 10 second club for stop motion animators. After studying all the curves and the wackiness that ensues, it's interesting to see that fluid cycles can exist in even as cumbersom a medium as stop motion, and here, its ALL about the pose. The fluidity, or lack therof, is often determined by a good pose at the right time. Curves and spacing help, of course, and are great for refining, but the stop mo samples all work BECAUSE the poses are in the right place.
