Yay, thats really nice =D a lil bit too fast, but after watching it for the 20th time it seems really nice, I like it, I like the tentacles when they appear, the blur's nice and the only thing that I'd change or adjust is that one of them (tentacle) should move with some delay, some overlap, so it seems more organic, something that would give it the extra feeling, its like when you through spaghetti at someone, some of them will be faster some of them slower

(lol yeah, the only thing that came in my mind was to type "spagetthi slow motion" and I got this) but you can see the overlapping action, some of them are at their extreme positions and some of them are just starting to move (0:35) some kind of falling behind of one tentacle.

But thats all Ive got, apart from these two things (speed, overlap) its damn awesome.Its nice to see you coming back, really, we need more skilled animators here ;)

oh and btw, those small guys are really neat, that was actually pretty good idea to put them there =)

The on;y thing really that didn't look very good was the transition between being about to summon the tentacles and then actually summoning them. There wasn't any easing. The rest of it was great though.

Strife

yes there was? thats what the whole bending back was.

Vendetta
12-14-2009, 06:57 PM
I mean there weren't any frames in that transition.

Strife

oh, its called force.

i see what hes saying, even though i disagree. its just his style for everything to move quick, vendetta.

you can ease and have force at the same time

Strife

not at 10 fps.

he did ease, look closer bro.

Well if Vendetta is not satisfied, then he didn't ease well enough hm?

To be honest it was pretty average, it was more like a slightly eased slide show. Try adding a few more inbetweens; I'm all for extravagant movements, but there is a point where it just looks like constant posing and loses the movement flow. The effects were fine, though.

and here is the very next frame:

before that there is absolutely no easing at all. the frames before are used to ease him back.

both of your posts were useless, too.

oh, i've never noticed, not like i made the animation.

its on purpose, i dont want to inbetween a movement that small.

Wait, what? You don't want to? Even if it makes a better animation?

I'm done here, you're an idiot.

Vendetta

if you put one frame with a very small movement in between those two, it would look better and still have force.

Strife
12-14-2009, 07:15 PM
good gtfo.


it would make it look slower, ffs.

and if you guys didn't read my first post, i did this in 2 class periods, for fun. i dont give a **** whether or not i can make it "better"

Vendetta
12-14-2009, 07:19 PM
one frame in 10 fps is a tenth of a second. One frame would not make it look too slow.

Strife

lmfao, keep restating yourself, i can't read.

or just get out of the thread.

Sorry for entering your top notch thread here again, but:

Oh god, this is embarrassing.

Vendetta, just leave it be, he's got something far up his ass and can't handle when people don't kiss it.

Strife
12-14-2009, 07:27 PM
lmfao, not at all, I just did this pretty quickly for fun, i'm not going to go get the file out of the harddrive from school and fix it.

So get your head out of your ass and leave it be.

and i also don't even think that movement needs to be eased anymore, so suck my dick.

Like I said on irc, the sticks were a bit stiff. Instead of mainly focusing on the movements, I thought the tentacles were great. It seems like they should be more focused upon then some measly ****ing movements. Overall, everything needs work in animation. Let's just enjoy the hobby for now instead of all this arguing. :(
