Hey, the second animation in two years, a quick short. Just testing out different weather effects that I've never tried before.

Enjoy.

The got the direction of the umbrella wrong =p

The physics and easing were wrong to.
Little tip.
Don't animate the sticks.. animate the wind. Think about it.

Yes, I noticed that with the umbrella :Embarrassed:


When you say "The physics and easing were wrong too", what does this mean? I hate it when people say something's wrong but they don't specify.


And I animated the wind as an effect. I also noticed that the .stk was animated quite a bit in that animation.

He was probably talking about how when the stick was being pushed up into the air. The easing was inconsistent, which means the stick didn't glide smoothly enough to make it look real. And at the end, the stick wouldn't just stop like that and fall. :|
The animation was pretty original, and you use of effects was pretty good though. Keep at it.

The wind was actually fine,
And yeah, i'd have to agree with Dark about all the easing and physics stuff.

Zawmbee, it's funny how you say only negative about every Pivot animation on this forum. You flame people and just spam by saying one measly point (usually with swearing attached) and act like a complete arsehole to new people. You act like you own the Pivot section, even new people copy you. Nothing gets reviewed on this Pivot section, it's all just spam and mainly you openly insulting new people who, okay, maybe they didn't read what to do, but you should be kind and point them in the right direction.

It's because of people like you that this whole section should be scrapped, you talk to people like they're the dirt under your shoe. Do you really think your comments actually help people? You give one lazy comment in the full knowledge that it's not helping anyone at all. Pull your head out of your own arse and stop spamming and flaming everyone like they're nothing.

The fact that you're better at Pivot than those you insult makes it worse. It looks like you're some competitive noob trying to stamp out any "competition", which is probably how you think of this whole forum. I have never seen one nice comment from you about any animation (most of them are pretty decent animations too which need some work) and you think it's tough, but I bet most of the people here have no respect for you whatsoever. And no, it's not just you but I've seen new people seeing your comments (you know, your reputation as the "Master Pivoteer") and thinking it's okay to say unhelpful and noobish comments (not backed-up) and get away with it.

Pathetic.

Agreed here with you. Dude just becuase your better than everyone else doesnt mean you have to tell everyones work is 'utter shit' I lost respect when i began reading your posts. Each one was negative.


To the animation i like the rain and the wind effect, however the part in the air with the umbrella is a little off, i think with a bit of practice you could do it.

jesus christ some of you are absolute idiots. This animation isnt that bad at all.

Ok there were some issues with the motion, it was a little jittery.. but thats just something you can work on. the concept was original, for picot anyway. Doing rain like that looked great. The wind was nice. The stick figure wasn't too great, but you can download others when you want to make more animations. I suggest finding a human like figure, it would look a lot better in pivot.

Don't be disheartened by some of the idiots here, they don't know how to constructively criticize work and simply leave you with comments like "this is shit"

Thanks for the in-depth review Jevon! I'll take that on board.

i really like the stick figure and your style, its kinda boring watching epic fights in every post so i really liked seeing this one

Blah, blah.
As i was saying, the physics are utter shit.
Seriously, if you were waiting for a long winded comment on how shit it was and how you could improve - stickpage is not your place.
No one cares enough to sit down and waste their life typing a whole chunk of criticism which rarely the recipient takes to consideration...a real waste of time.
The fact that you've just returned to stickpage and have literally seen like ****ing 2 of my posts you immediately know i "poo-poo" everyone's work.
Pfft.

It seems you could care enough to write a sentence saying you shouldn't type criticism, but you actually type more spam than c&c.
you, my friend, are a faggot.

Zawmbee, hardly anyone goes
"Stupid anim" or "Practice Moar."

Your the only one. I'm not trying to make enemys or anything, but, you should give more criticism.

Imagine if someone says to an anim you worked for a month on "It sucked practice more"

You'd be pissed. Btw, I'm not on anyones side here.

Actually I see many people type a whole chunk of criticism but you're the worst offender for not doing so. And since I've returned I've seen nearly all of your comments on the Pivot section and they're all the same. Grow up.

Name me 5 people and links who have commented on a pivot thread more than 2 paragraphs, excusing yourself and copy and pastes.

I didn't say everyone else does it, I'm saying you're the worst and people copy you (for some reason). I'm not asking for two paragraphs, I'm asking you to stop being openly rude to new members and to stop saying utterly 'tardish comments with no reason for doing so. You could at least back-up your worthless comments.

I've actually thought this for a long time Zawmbee. You need to start giving people more respect. It doesn't bother me too much though because there's always someone that's going to be overly simple and harsh. It's the person the comment is directed at who should deal with it, and if they don't, chances are they deserved what they were given. Anyway, animation was OK, but you really need to stop making your anims so constant. By that I mean when you apply easing you do it too slowly. Try out a heavy spaced style so you can see what I mean (then ditch it if you don't like it). I realise different people ease differently, but this applies with the physics as well. Speed it up and increase the movements more each frame. Other than that, it was great - good to see something different to the thousands of other "[username's] epic fight thread".

Jesus Christ this so gay. Stop whinning, who cares if Zawmbee is a dick. Its one comment fucking ignore it.
Anyways, the animation was ok but the when he went up to the air it looked more like a panning than anything. You should of had him and the umbrella move a little too, maybe a tad of rag doll effect would look excellent in there. And you need to ease like no other brotha.
The rain looked pretty cool. The water drop was done well. I'm afraid to do weather just cause its a shit load of work to make it work well.

I could retaliate easily, then you would contradict, blah..blah.
If i make a good comment will you shut the **** up.

Flux, i don't respect anybody i do not know, moron.

Rombie, i agree.

the rain was sweet and so was the wind.
only thing is physics and easing needs a little tweaking.
