It's an old test, the idea was to have a gentle fly between all these triangles and then visiting Uni and Kay. Sadly, handling the software isn't my thing,
It's a hyperspace drive ...woosh..., my thought was: Verdammt noch mal!
I had problems to correct the flight, I think it is called the "ease to" function.
Then a phone call, I had to create a catalogue, and so: no problem solved, "aus den Augen, aus dem Sinn" / "out of the eyes, out of the mind"
And a 12sec.clip on my harddisk

I would like to, but I have to learn the software and I don't think I will ever have time for it

Very nice, Anna! Shame that's all there is.
Which program are you using? Is it that Macromedia Flash program?
I'm interested in making animations, but I just never seem to find the time... :(
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

By the way I made two level packs for Boppin' in case anyone is interested... :oops:

Shame, yes it is, especially that an other forumite really indeed does study animation, - Hi Crunchlet! :kiss:

Much, much, much, better for my opinion, it's called Anime Studio 5, you have more control about your characters, you can rig them with bones, that means, you can reduce the in-betweens to zero, (not the best idea, but possible)
You can use photos, bitmap pictures, and you can also make vectorgraphics and animate them.
Theoretical it would be easy to anmiate Jenny's comics, cut out the character, rigging, and place them on the background again, then animate.
here is an example
http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=mwcIgF_byeA
Kaye on a Pastel Defender background
I'd did cut out Kaye, the body has bones like the arm, the machines are simply moved from A to B, and the "zoom", well lt's a simple resize.
For bitmap animation you need *.png pictures,they have to be free, I use photoshop with an alpha channel and save them as png's.
Vector animation is also possible, which is closer to Flash
http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=gxRv0X3Fynk
All that moving was made with bones, no extra pic was needed, the bone deformed the cloak as I wished
The background is a bitmap.
The outline, yes I should had remove it, but in this test I wanted to see how the interaction was, hey, - that's true!

If you want to know what is possible with the software, just search inside youtube for Anime Studio, or Moho, the name the software had before.

Shame on me again, I've got the software and no time.
Fact is, my big brother thought: hey, and did want a 60 minutes movie...
Did I mention I have no full experiences yet?
Short films, for learning, should be the first step, I couldn't find time, ...
And mostly the wall is/seems to high for me...

here is a link
http://www.lostmarble.com/
http://my.smithmicro.com/win/graphics.html

Oh yes, there are two version, one cheap one expensive
You can export as avi and as Quicktime, also as a SWF, (flash animation).

Goodness me, that looks like fun!
That one of Kaye looks really good. You're right. It is a shame that you haven't done more, but then, I'm not exactly sitting on a back catalogue of work either.

I'd like to try out this stuff, though.
Mayhaps, if we ever get good enough, we should collaborate...?

Yeah right.
We could sit around saying "yeah, we should do this", then get distracted playing WiiSports or something... :D

Well, I've got no Wii.... //]

Anime Studio was called earlier Moho,
Now the download files of Anime Studio works for a month,than it is over.
The test version of Moho was also restricted, but only with a waterdsign, you could work with it much, much longer.
Search inside YouTube for Moho and Anime Studio, you can find a lot of examples.

So if you want to try it out, and not be limited for a month, take this download from a swiss webpage.
A very helpfull tutorial is inside the package, and Moho has nearly all features of the professionell Anime Studio, incl. the pseudo 3D stage.

10 MB
a swiss webpage windows and MacOSX version
