i guess its good for first time.

very nice realy jerky tho

04-15-2008, 06:37 AM
well, just so you know what happens in it...

he punches, then opponent gets hit and goes for a head butt...

and it isnt jerky, must be since i exported it to a bitmap file.....or the host URL.
and ideas for a better URL ?

http://www.swfup.com/ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ivy0OwH5Mw)?

Or, better still, just save the piv. file as a GIF.

Seriously, WTF.

Anyway, don't use default sticks, mate. They have no backbones, and so their flexibility is somewhat limited. I don't really know how to explain it, but, like, make a body with two segments to it. Kind of thing. The drawback (of the punch) had mediocre easing, but it was better than the rest of the animation. It was twitchy in places. Keep it up, but don't use default sticks. Make your own, or download other peoples'. That's kind of lame, but if you're not very good at stk making then I suggest you do that.
You can get stks off of www.droidz.org, but Jon's stk database was destroyed, so there aren't as many stks there now. But still.

Helping hint:
If you draw a punch back like you did, you should make it an over-head punch.

04-18-2008, 07:29 PM
yea, thanks for the help but i am NEVER doing pivot again....

04-19-2008, 02:44 AM

pivot on fire
04-26-2008, 07:37 PM
that was good for ue first vid i must agree. but it was pausing every like 3 sec's.....

04-26-2008, 10:03 PM
I suggest finding some good tutorials, not that i am saying your bad , but you could could improve. For example when you threw the first punch it never connected... make sure you have a frame where it is connecting, ad second make your own kind of stick. As far as your animation goes, it is actuly quite well for your first , some people don't even understand how to ease there movments, you seem to already know most of it , good job xD

Low beg, work on all the basics, blah blah.

Don't use defaults, they're really stiff.

Use swfcabin(dot)com to upload, it was made by DarkDemon himself


05-02-2008, 06:45 AM
