And by BETTER footroll , do you mean more exaggerated?

Thanks.

I think he means the overall gesture of a person walking
is sometimes flowing

*
exept if your a zombie
*


but your anim should show a rolling
like a see-saw motion if viewed from the top
hand swingging forward
wrist snap action
finger flicking only slightly
that's fine...

the most important parts are usualy
*knees - knees dont just move forward but pivot slightly.
*elbows - bend as the arm swings
*hips - sway left to right..sometimes up and down at the corners.
*wrist - the slight turn of the hand increases realism...

im no real animator but it's common sense
so walk across a room and observe your walk and mimick it in maya, try anything it's supposed to be fun

cheers!
hope you show another WALK-anim.test
