View Full Version : Omniscience [Flash Collab]

05-03-2008, 05:50 AM

This collab is based around an omniscient attempting to defeat an army of opponent sticks.
If you dont know what an omniscient is, then -(to sum it up) asically, an omniscient is an all seeing, disembdied being who has unrivalled knowledge/ potential power.
For more info on omniscients go here-

Now, you're thinking, how do I animate something which is invisible?
Well, an omniscient (at least, this omniscient) can touch other sticks, meaning that he can knock them out and such.
Also, being master of the mind, he can possess opponents and use telekinesis.
All sorts of powers that involve his mind and the minds of others.

You need to involve at least one other stick in your animation.
It needs to be at least 5 seconds long.
If most of it is speaking, with very little action is wont be accepted.
Your omniscient needs to enter through a door, or a hole in the roof, or something, and his exit from your animation needs to be through a hole or door also. This is so that a) you know he has left, you cant tell if something invisible has run off the screen. b) so there is a slight transition between parts.

Any violation of these rules will most likely end in your part not being used.

Program: Flash 8 (CS3 users, save as a Flash 8 document or I cant open it)
FPS: 24- you can double or single frame, but I dont particularly want code to be used
Sign your animation in the top right hand corner, and break apart your text [Highlight text box and press CTRL+B Twice]
Name your symbols INCLUDING TWEENS. Such as "Mesmay1" or "Mesmaybeam"
When you finish your entry PM me the fla using www.savefile.com

ENTRANTS:- = no entry submitted yet
$ = has submitted an entry
? = Might submit something/unsure if they can or not
X = Dropped out
!= has submitted an entry which will be used in the un-used section (antithesis ftw)


If I am missing anything let me know!

looks wicked.
Too bad i dont do flash.

Though i might start.

So, is the omniscient character visible? Or do we have to animate guys seemingly randomly dying?

Not so much randomly dying, you gotta know that its the omniscient.
That ties in with a rule I forgot- you ARE allowed v-cam.
I dont think itlll mess up the collab.
Are you in?

@Drag- thanks. You should try flash. Its a good program and theres a lot more things you can do with it. (plus if you get good enough with it, you can get paid for stuff >:])

Rather Cheesy

Put me as a maybe, I like the idea but I got a couple questions.

1) Is the omniscient or whatever its called like orb shaped [flying around the room] or is he stick shaped having the same limitations as a stick would physics wise?

2) can the omniscient pick up or carry weapons? So that way it looks like an invisible ghost warrior? Or does he carry invisible weaponry?

He can be whatever you want.
