Muybridge as a reference in blender in less than 5 minutes !

As an animator, you need some references for motion, and luckily the great work of Eadweard Muybridge is floating all around on the Internet (it is in Public Domain in most countries)…

So you have found this nice board showing pictures of a running cat, and you are curious to see how it feels animated, you want to study it in motion…
