An in-depth 8 part series to create a highly automated rig to animate 2D characters for cartoons in After Efects. The rig is based on iExpressions 2 and the puppet tool. It features an automated walk cycle, automatically rotating wheels, secondary animations and much more.

In part 3, we create an automated walk cycle with iExpressions. You just need to keyframe the position of the character and the iExpressions-based rig animates the legs and the body automatically such that the character is walking.
