http://www.fileize.com/files/a2373b1b/187/brawl_thing.gif
not much better -_-

like 4th try maybe:
http://www.fileize.com/files/68338961/30e/tests.gif
umm.. maybe... uh... XD failure :)
testing gravity and so on

5th anim! I think i have improved a ton :D
http://www.fileize.com/files/4b9b401b/dba/fight_thingie.gif
still shit :)

EDIT:

my first try with angles
http://www.fileize.com/files/13fe727d/a10/speed_angles.gif
sucks

The animation is smooth which is good, however (as you've stated) there is a bit of resizing, and you also need to work on anticipation. Try to use a higher brush smoothing (20 is the minimum) because any lower makes your stick look wobbly.

thank you kind sirs!

thanks for your CnC. it helped. I'll make sure to do that if I ever flash anything again :)


Animation is smooth, Character movement is a bit bad, Overall rating is 8.9/10 :3
So practice moar!!! :3

lol thanks Lethal, I dont think it was that high of a number out of 10 but, thank you

Foscex
12-07-2012, 02:45 PM
lethal2, i dont want to be rued or something but i think this anim is a bit less then a 8,9/10:

back to stickly business
since this is your first flash thing, you have still a ton to learn and stuff
but yea you resize, you can get rid of that by using guide lines or a grid
it is very wobbly, try to maintain the sense of direction on your limbs

and the rest it is aaaaaal practice!!
goodluck!

Stickly
12-07-2012, 02:48 PM
thanks Foscex :)
and ya I disagreed with Lethal2's 8.9 XD
this sucks and I know it. Glad to see ur pro-ness givin me CnC

Stickly
12-07-2012, 05:02 PM
ok, i double posted.
RAPE ME!

anyway I just made this, flash is fuggin hard X(. improvement? or naw.
I couldnt figure out how to make the figures more smooth... I changed the line smoothness to 20, but it didnt go so well...
anyway this is my SECOND try lol. Again, i will probably never be able to get the full version of flash, im using the trial version right now for curiosity.

Try 40% smoothness with is the one I use, also you could try right clicking your stick and hit smooth.
Overall just keep practicing its a tough process at first but it'll soften throughout time.

Someday, you too will realize. Practice will make everything good.

It's smooth. Good for a starting animation. :P wobbliness I can see. Raise your smoothing to 20-28 or whatever. It depends on your style. ;)

lol guyz, I'm good at pivot I guess XD.
i agree tho, flash just be harder... I will practice more! maybe :)

also... do you guys think I should make an RHG? ik I'm a beginner, but wut do u guys think? :P

Make an RHG using FLASH thats for sure, pivot is gay, and thats why its free, Pivot is the gayest shit that has landed on this earth since Auschwitz.

Don't make an RHG yet. No offense, but there are other flash beginners that are better than you. So not yet. Practice more for now.

ok i agree with you stickmakerflash, I know i am not very good, which is why im deciding not to. no offence taken.
and Alien Anims lol, ik I wont make it with pivot haha.

I will keep practicing and once i am good enough I will probably make one, thanks :). I would get the shit beat out of me if i made one right now XD, that is if anyone would be bad enough to battle meh.

thanks 4 makin this a hawt thread lol, the pivot sections gotten too boring.

You know, even though you obviously like pivot, you have a lot of potential as a flash animator. For your first flash animation this was really smooth. If ever you switches to flash, I think you could transition quite nicely and become really good! :)

try using 24fps, changed your smoothing into 25 or higher. Keep training and you'll be like me in no time :P

Stickly

XD 24 fps probably wouldnt be the best for these anims... but i will try it on another

thanks :D

Quickly draw a brush.
Then it will be smooth.
Delineate separate joint.
Doing so will be it natural.

oh hey berilinky thanks for your help! :D. the quickly drawing a line is hard for me X(, sorry, i am a perfectionist, but flash isnt for perfectionist nazis i can now tell lol.

thanks for that, it helped :) and you will get better. pivot helped me learn alot of movement and stuff so thats where i pretty much got most of my talent.
I have also done movie animations and etc. but I am too young to go any farther XD. lol enough with my life, thanks! :D

sorry berilinky i made this b4 i read ur CnC lol.
I just made this, but i think i could have done better :(. its a bit of a physics test, gravity, effects, and other... and a little speed walk as well.
my other ones seem to look better than this one haha, but then again this is only like my 4th animation. this might help u skyshift, for ur flip :P
http://www.fileize.com/files/e8c8050d/7d7/tests.gif
damn the run at the start is wobbly as fuck!
i rushed that part sorry, but what about the flip?

Not bad at all for first time in flash! Looks like you knew your stuff in pivot! Here are my two pieces of advice:

1) Do NOT switch back to pivot. I know flash is hard to use, but trust me, stick with it and you will NEVER regret it, it just takes practice.

2) Double framing is your BEST FRIEND, I can never stress this enough with animators. Even though I'm not great, I can say that double framing is key to making animations feel more natural and eliminate wobbliness.

Looks like you got a really good sense of motion and easing. Now combine that with flash and double framing and your good to go! Good luck and hope to see more.

Thanks for your help man :D. and I'm sorry but I might have to stop flash and go back to pivot :'(
I'm 14 and im using the trial version of flash, and once it expires i will probably be finished...
anyway, thank you so much for that, i will try to make the most anims possible b4 it expires :D

ok so I made this before I read your CnC. I tried to do some quick angles... its alil fast paced, but ya my first attempt at different angles

A tablet's what alot of the animators (of Flash, and Easytoon) use. It makes it like drawing a stick figure on paper.

Also. Saw your newest anim.

umm... nice one for first time in flash... but why you use the brush, if you're the pivot man, why you don't use the lines? I think lines make the body more smooth, because i see that you're using the brush to slow.
Keep learning! :D

Ohh no, you disagreed my rating of your animation, lol just kidding
I don't know why coz your first flash animation was WAYYY more good than my first animation on flash, Anyway I'm also a Pivot 3 user, I used it for years but since I got way too excited to work on animations like Hyun, I SWITCHED TO IT! Lol anyway your newest animation was 1.2/10, lol jk 10/10 for you :3

Practice more and you'll get the greatness iN THE Future :D

Thanks lol :).
tryin to get betterrrrrr.
