ok so i havent animated anything in 3 or 4 days, as i lost the will to pivot. but now im back into it again, and i did a couple of tests and this was meant to be a camera movement test (at the beginning) but i decided to carry on with it. i think the camera effects were not bad, but not good, and it got MAJORLY gif raped so i urge you to download the piv. but apartfrom that i think i did ok, and should i carry on with it? also, yeah very unoriginal, but deal with it! and i want more crit than george bush with this one!

(noo get the piv!) gif: http://i26.tinypic.com/2n0qx05.gif

dude this is nice, my piv is screwed up, but the raped gif actually looked quite decent, i like it, a little stiff, but other wise very nice :)

It was very stiff....
I din't like the close ups, they didn't look to good.
And the ball dosn't look powerful, it's going to slow....
His foot slides around when he gets hit.
The beam was okay I guess...
I have never atempted a beam so this one looked okay.

thanks :d more comments now pluz you peupple.

ok Blacky, ill try to fix the foot sliding and the speed of the ball, and i can try to make it less stiff, but im really bad at editing frames. and thanks about the beam :D

I am horrible at editing frames, If I make little mistakes like that I usually just start all over again :P
Good luck with editing it.

lol the thing that annoyes me the most is when you have to click next frame once youve edited one, then it goes to the end, and you have to go back and find where you were over and over again. is there any way to get around that?

05-24-2008, 05:23 PM
Not that I know of....
But it would be good if there was.

The camera at the beginning wasn't needed what so ever.
You've done it in near enough every animation you've done.
It only looks good in certain places.
I didn't like the close ups, try sizing down your animations to 2 instead of 1.

On a good note, I saw some good easing on there.

05-24-2008, 05:47 PM
:D thanks. does this mean you believe the other is my anim then? (you said the easing was too good to be ine :p). and yeah thats why i originally made it as a test at camera movements as im bad at them so ill get practicing... erm... after my holiday, and ill be rusty then :(
