I wanted to reach out and see if anyone on here would have any tips or may in fact know how, but the character animations in this piece (below) are very fluid and don't seem like they were done using any rigging techniques or scripts (duik or rubberhose). Could anyone let me know if these are tradition animation, like frame by frame, or if they were done using some other method.

Here is the vimeo link: https://vimeo.com/99071231

I think you're stymied more by the fluidity of the motion than the technique. Notice that there are NO fast character motions in that video... which makes for smoother motion.

Yes, this is what I thought initially, but I have seen so many more pieces where the character motion & walking and some very hyper-physical movements just seem to fluid for puppet pins in AE...which makes me think they are frame by frame/cel-animated...

Here's another good example with character walking across the frame:

I think we have a different definition for "fluid".

I'll bet that piece of video is at 23.976 / 24 / 25... something like that. I saw a lot of jerky motion because of the frame rate.
