If you believe that your thread has to do with animation in any way, feel free to post it. Please use meaninful titles. Something like "check this out!" or "Poser doesn't like me" will not help. Something like "please critique my walkcycle" or "rendering for filim: what resolution and encoder" is better :)
Share your toughts. We are here to learn from one another, and the only way to do that is interacting.
When posting images it would be nice if you "saved them for the web". Sometimes browsing gets really slow because of big images. On the other hand, you can post the "final image" in high-res.
I've compiled a list of Animation websites on the Forum Banner. If you find more resources feel free to post them. I will try to keep that list updated.
Some questions are asked very frequently and sometimes users post very useful information. I will gather a list of those threads in here for you.
