    A Couple Of My Very First Animations (Update)

    - - - - - - UPDATE - - - - - -

    I'm Back Again, I Don't Have A Lot Of New Animations Like Last Time.
    This time im bringing just 1 animation, i got the idea from -Baha's TUT <<== Nice TUT. Click It.
    I know it starts just like an example in it but just the first 5 or 6 secs, everything else after that
    is my idea, btw i didn't ripped off anything, i saw the .piv, and did the work by myself.
    And i have evidence, just look at my running .
    Well, this is my test for a little running, slashing, slashing trail, tremor, falls, flips,
    zooming, fade in and out and blood. So, here it is.



    About the .stk's, the sword is from the Baha's TUT example (is that ilegal?)
    Hmm, almost everything else is from a .stk package Called "Miscelaneuos"
    according to it's ReadMe.txt, DarkDemon.org authorized the making of that
    package. no author names where in it so... i would like to give creds but, sorry. .

    SO...tell me what u think about it. what do i need to improve, stop doing, do more.
    Or just say the very well recieved comment: "Nice Ani. Keep Going".

    - - - Old Ones - - -
    My first try to do a real animation (plz don't laugh at me )

    I can see that u have watched some tutorials that's good, But i think u should work on easing and try to speed up your animations.

    Pivot 2.2.5 = Less bugs
    Pivot 3 = More bugs, but got sprites and background thingies.
    Well that's what i know, i think most people suggest pivot 2.2.5
    Courtesy?

    yes i have, Baha's tut, great one.
    thnx for the post, i'm not really good at easing, i know what it is and how to do it
    but im just bad at it, i'll try to practice.
    about the speed up, to do it, what i have to do is make faster moves on pivot
    or just edit it later with a gif editor?
    sry if im asking a lot of questing, i just want to be good at this

    I love piv 2.2.5, but i had piv 3 also, but it kept crashing and had more bugs. I reccomend 2.2.5.

    Hey, nice anims, but they're stiff and choppy and uneased, Go to the masterlist and look at the tuts on easing, smoothing and physics, they will help you alot.
    And the 1st anim looked alot like the one that comes with pivot "Tower Fall" The fall did

    i read that pivot 2.2.5 is better, but you should use pivot 3 to save as .gif
    because of the supersample (i think that's the word). i've been doing my homework . thnx for the reccomendation btw.

    There actually really good for your first animations. I can see you were using bahas pivot tutorial. Its a good tutorial. But remeber, you have to follow the tutorial almost exactly as it is otherwise it looks kind of choppy. So try and ease more and just work on the basics.
    good luck.

    You gotta keep your stick figure from always scratching his head. Kinda choppy and stiff movements.
