And then falling over.

Thats a silly dream to have. So are you back full time with pivot then?

It feels good not being the crappiest animator in the thread anymore. :3

Also, just a random thought, does anyone remember this? That was quite a while back...

I'm only bringing this up because I got engaged a week ago. Yaaay!

well all he did was post effortless crap, gave pivot a bad name, and was part of the problem when i told renenee to lock the old thread. Nothing good comes from him animation wise or post wise. Hes not serious about the craft and is a disgrace to real animators everywhere. And thats all im going to say about him.

No its double framming. I know it when i see it. And calling it slow is one ambiguous argument. Did you purposely slow it down(in which case the only obvious reason would be double frames) or are you trying to tell me your gif is lagging, your a blatant liar.

Next time you want to call me a liar and try to call me on my pivot experience i suggest you do a little more research. I highly doubt DD would accept that animation into intermediates.

Also enjoy your failure below.

and before this guy starts trolling the thread let me explain why double framing is pretty much a terrible idea for pivoters and not only lazy. Just a little fyi for anyone looking on hear that wants to learn pivot or hell this is could be a rule for animation in general in some cases not all.

Ok a little fact first. The average pivoter from what I've seen animates at either at a low 15 fps to a ridiculously high 20-25. I myself stay around the 17-19 range.

This said even with those frame rate when you use double framing it cuts it in half. Now even 15 seems a little slow to me, but some people can make it work. But imaging if that 15 ps framer double framed. Then the animation would be running at a slow 7-8 frames per second. Probably the ugliest frame rate frame rate especially for pivot.

Even with the high 25 frames per second, its still running lower than the 15fps, and anything below that in pivot looks like garbage, I've seen it a hundred times.

In terms of me calling these people lazy, look at Mr. Troll as I'll call him now. As I've clearly shown you through the wonders that is flash hes double framed a wapping total of 5 frames. Seriously 5 fucking frames? you coudn't of gotten off your ass to make 5 more frames of inbetweens to create a smooth slow mo scene? Thats officially lazy guys.

Most pivoters who double frame only do it for a few frames, and it makes no sense as to why. I've already explained why it makes animations ugly and yet no one seems to understand to make a decent slow mo scene.

Quick example mine of at least one proper way to do slow mo. No double framing just more inbetweens, see how simple that is?

Nah the old thread was locked because i requested it. Nothing to do with flamming, more the lack of effort. I was tired of looking at people massacre pivot. It didn't belong in the art forum, the average animator didn't really look there.

As for the flamming, I'm just telling him what I saw. I said i didn't like the double frames then he got all ADHD about it with denial, so i had to prove it too him. Pretty simple really.

Well, good pivot animators don't come out of anywhere, they have to practice and stuff, and that is what this thread is for, improvement... I guess...

yeah...

Oh come now, Narf isn't flaming. You obviously haven't seen flaming, especially not by yours truly - he was just explaining why double framing sucks absolute and total ass (which, might I add, is absolutely true). It's just his personality that comes off as hateful, but hey, that's Narf.

Also, wow, now that I've really improved, when I look at animations I used to think were fucking amazing, I actually see a lot of flaws. That slo-mo wasn't very good if I would say so myself, the movements seemed all spazzy. It was also quite shaky.

I know you probably aren't going to take that into account seeing as you don't even animate anymore, but hey. Just sayin' to prove my point.

Anywho, I also just wanted to say, I've entered into the Pivot Animation FFA, and I was first paired up with YongWalRang, so I just wanted to put what I have up here. I know it sucks, but I'm rusty. That backflip was my first animation in months, and even then I animated that in early February. Even then it still sucked, so gimme a break here.

Oh, and by the way, I'm pretty happy with the rest of the animation, it's specifically the ending of it (with the tremors and such) that sucks ass. I'm highly considering completely trashing the part after my base slides onto the screen.
