Walking tutorial?
I'm looking for a tutorial which describes how to make own walking animations. I don't like the run sequences that one can import. They're good when the character is running but not when walking. I can't find any tutorials on youtube or google.
Can someone help me?

This Google search provides links to picture references of creating walk sequences and gives you a basic idea of how you're going to have to pose by pose the positioning of your character to create the animation.

Then its a matter of going through and creating the pose by pose and piecing it together into an animation.

Make sure you export the animation into a .dmx file when you're done so you can use it again and again.

I have seen these videos many times while searching but they doesn't describe the walking part. And as I said: I can't figure it out myself, or... I didn't say that but I should have done it.

This is picture is all you need: http://cyberdog.wikispaces.com/file/view/WalkCycle_Side.jpg/30505746/WalkCycle_Side.jpg

Make each pose about 3 frames apart or so, then reverse it for the other side of the body.

Also, if you're like me and are not much of an animator, you can use a L4D2 or HL2 character's walking animation, and transfer it to your TF2 character with an animation surrogate technique. Works wonders ;)
