2D Skeletal Animation Tutorial
If you want to learn how to make your HTML5 game characters move smoothly, you can check out this 2D skeletal animation tutorial from Kestrel Moon.
This guide will teach developers how to use both Creature animation app and Phaser 3 to turn static raw images, into a dynamic walking character.
Compared to traditional frame-by-frame animation, the 2D skeletal animation creates motion by just using a group of image parts. You will be applying computer graphic algorithms to scale and move the parts we want to animate.
The animation process requires creating a character texture atlas, meshing the body parts, and creating the skeletal rig, among others.
