    Re: Onwards With Pivot

    Well, when I clicked on the link it came up with just a thumbnail.

    I suggest using PivotHost, it's very simple and easy.
    http://pivothost.org/public/index.php

    All you do is choose which animation you want to upload. Upload it. Then click on the link. From there copy the URL and paste it as follows:

    If you want your animation to run directly on your thread, without having to click on a link:

    Code:
    [img]URL[/img]
    If you want a link to your animation:

    Mind, if you want to make your animations run automatically (the first code), you're only able to post 800 pixel wide animations. So if you haven't already, when you save your Pivot Animation in GIF format, do the following:

    Uncheck "Merge"
    Frame Delay: Set to "6"
    Shrink Frame: Set the number to "2"


    Hope this all helps, courtesy (Meaning: could you please have a look at my thread)?

    The link's in the "Courtesy" part of my signature.

    Re: Onwards With Pivot

    Okay, now that you've got your animation uploading in order...ON TO THE ANIMATIONS THEMSELVES.

    Pretty good for a beginner, the effects are pretty good. But prepare to be flooded with comments about "easing and stiffness".

    EASING refers to the acceleration and deceleration of the moving Pivot figure joints, so as to make them more realistic. When you move your arm, it actually speeds up and slows down, naturally. Just incorporate this into your animation and you'll have achieved EASING.

    When you leave a part of a figure still for a while, what you have is STIFFNESS. This is bad because it makes the figure look like a statue. The golden rule here is to move EVERY joint in EVERY frame.

    For more info about this, I suggest you check out "Baha's Ultimate Pivot Tutorial" in the Pivot Tutorials section. It has everything and absolutely everything about animating you need to know.

    Once again, courtesy?

    It is recommended that you read this thread thoroughly when you create your first animation thread so you know what is going on when someone adds ďCourtesy?Ē to the bottom of their post.

    This rule simply means that this person has posted on your thread so itís only fair that you return the favour and post on theirs.
    One of the big things about receiving courtesy is that you need a link in your Signature so the person can be redirected to your thread easily. Searching through the forums can be very boring and if you donít have the link there is a smaller chance of you getting courtesy returned.

    To put a link to your thread you can use the following format.

    Code:
    Code:
    My Animations Ė Courtesy?
    You can edit this code, as long as your thread is easily accessable through your signature.

    Another point about courtesy is that if you want someone to post on your thread through courtesy you would need to post a substantial comment. A lot of people wonít courtesy a one or two sentence comment.
    Take your time. Comment on more than the newest animation. Say what needs fixing. What are your favourite parts. Length. Detail. There are a lot of things that can be commented on so there is no excuse to writing a short post.

    The Courtesy Rule is a very important thing at the DarkDemon forums so it isnít easy to forget or ignore so follow these rules, return courtesy and gain respect.
