Animation

Unread postAuthor: c19o » Mon Dec 31, 2007 1:54 am

Well I got Adobe Flash CS3 Professional today, watched a couple tutorials and made this.

After I get the hang of it, or find a simpler software I'll post a design animation of my upcoming project, which features 6 barrels, and one of those ASCO 1.5" valves. Any help and recommendations are welcome.
:D

Very impressive lack of projectile drop for such a low muzzle velocity, is this on the moon? :D

Its a scramjet powered golfball :D. http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/ ... _Tests.htm

I made the fps higher so it'd be more realistic but when i saved it to the GIF file it stayed the same speed, any ideas why?

I use CS3 flash as well, don't tell me you bought it legally :lol:

Made this in about half an hour with it, i'm sure it's possible to make decent ones with enough time and skill.

What I do with animation shop is create individual fames in MS paint then use it to combine them, the old style sort of animation - Flash is probably easier to do of you can create individual objects and move them independently

No I use similar methods in flash, make a drawing, then copy it into the next frame and apply the changes, then repeat.

I think I used about 30 frames for the above animation. But it was a re-do I made a better copy but lost it, this one is all shakey and what not.

Yup...

.gif images seem to have a minimum frame time and you have to work with it or the images look dodgy. That means less frames and moving the projectile further in each frame to make things faster.

In GIMP you can have ridiculously short frame times but it's no dam good when you export it and it moves at half the speed.


Tsk, you've got a copy of flash CS3 and you make wobbly animations...

I've got a copy too, I downloaded the whole thing as a trial a while back. Still works...

Anyway I deliberately ignore it hogging my hard drive and use stuff like MSpaint and GIMP to do things like this: Sci-fi launcher

Ha, it didn't used to be wobbly, and it kinda looks like recoil :wink:

I just downloaded the full version :roll:

Nice sci-fi launcher :P

Indeedy, through they're more likely to be for propulsion that pleasure, scaled up against a human model (or at least the human models in the game I made it to complement) it's probably 50cm diameter and goes over an arm :wink:

Ha, that reminds me of my Europe tour weirdly enough, it involved €2, a condom machine in a German youth hostel, bored teenagers and water.

1 ribbed condom + water = painful waterbombs :lol:
