Just got a CS4 trial, wanted to play around with it.

Kinda sad that I can't think of anything to animate, for practice.

some full body testing I did....very rough I know shaky, but I was trying out Veteran technique; do the first pose and last pose of each movement and then do the inbetweens. I think i captured the general feeling I wanted.

youtube to mp3 converter, most useful online tool an animator could want!

and thanks!

say I wanted to make a full length submission, how many of those 3 second clips do you think I would need, in order to avoid it being "too short"? like 10? 20?

hmmmm, this is one of those things that I probably wouldn't use motion tweens for. if anything, rough it out with brush then have it folow with tween. what you have here looks like it's really viscous and thick, instead of light and watery. this is an interesting exercise, though. try to have the shape really get pointy towards the top of the swing. have the surface of the water break a little bit.

I'm in class now, so I don't have my wacom, but I kind of have a rough drawing of what I mean.

well, I remade the animation from scratch, gave the bowl a better motionpath and animated the water frame by frame (50 frames). I think the result is quite good although it took a hell of a lot longer. I still find it difficult to find the water's breaking point at the top. I still haven't got a natural movement there. On the positive side the water looks a lot more lively and fluid.
thanks a lot for your help.

yeah I can see it, this looks really good. very nicely done. the only weird thing is the first ten frames or so, when the bowl comes back a bit. but that aside this is a big improvement.

looks pretty good. you'll have to play around with the pacing of it. Feels kind of rushed right now. Usually most animatic's are so you'll prolly fix that
