Im not sure if this is a rookie question or not. I would like to know how to
animate those flying things that glow (basically a glowing dot) ive seen
them in a few flashes. Luminiscense is the latest one ive seen it in.
i know how to do the basic make something glow but those flying things
are they frame by frame? or is there a quick easy way?
sorry i take that back i dont think it was in Luminiscense,
but im definatly sure its in Adam Phillips LittleFoot
There was a scene I did that called for lightning bugs. It was frame by frame animation to achieve this and I drew the motion-path streaks behind every motion dart. Morphed the shape too. It also looked way better when the glow wasn't on a movie clip that looped, but added on top of the animated "dot". I was able to bounce the light off other things, which was pretty much icing on the cake.
frame by frame, its actually just a ball moving with different easing, you should check the concept of easing in and out, i guess its nice practice on fbf since its really just a ball
ama gon chill
In littlefoot it's all FBF, pretty simple stuff since they're just single-color brushstrokes. Pretty sure that for Waterlollies, Phillips used some actionscript wizardry to animate them in a few scenes, but that's probably more in-depth than you need.
