View Full Version : Failed Effects

Yeah, I know it looks like he's trying to flap is arms while jumping, that so got messed up. What i'm really puzzling is how the HELL do you make the effects look better? It looks so FBF and crappy. I noticed on other animations that it's already set up IN animation IN one frame. How the heck?

Make first frame of the special effect animation:


Name it.

Double lick on the so called "movie clip" Your special effect drawing.

Animate the rest of the drawing/special effect there. Click on Scene 1 at the top right. You may add blur,s glows straight away and it will stay fro every frame like that. Well done!

Now to make them better, use more frames and make it smooth and ease out. From starting fast to slow disappearing, or fast, slow fast. Kind of a wacky style. Use particles too, small dots flying from the explosion. Use some yellow sharp puffs going out of the center if you want it to look good, that's for the explosion of course:

Check out the Animation section there, it is truly an awesome tutorial. :3

Thanks for the help! Much appreciated. Unfortunately I can't seem to view antiUP. I don't know what's going on, just lately it does this...
