Sorry for being brutally honest megadrivesonic

either he wants to take some time into it or he doesnt have much time to work on it. I sure as hell havent started but its already pictured in my head.

I think he's mostly referring to the fact that he hasn't posted much on here, so we don't really know if he even started. He could have forgotten about this for all we know.

if his partner hadnt started then he wouldnt have said "he is taking too long", we should at least give our opponents a week cap

Oh and Sacros before I forget. You won't need to take the effort by searching for background music. Sounds will be nice but the music will be taken care of.

Sorry that I've been taking so long animation, I've haven't been able to get to the computer for a few days. I'll try to make this take less time though frame by frame animation can be annoying


if your interested in me doing comminsions, here are my prices

zovies: has my partner pmed his move? if not is there a problem if i post it here for everyone to see? regarding the music, i see there will be a single track throughout the entire collab, how will the song be selected? do we get to vote?

I searched on google what a v-cam is and I don't know if it will cause any trouble later so I prefer not using one
Unless you REALLY want to :P

The track will be made later.
It is just a soft kinda lobby/elevator music. I don't want any rock in it.

Yes your opponent has sent his part of the animation and I really like all the work I've seen from last week!
I hope you all make it look great! :)

TO EVERYONE:
IF YOU'VE FINISHED YOUR MOVE PLEASE SEND IT TO ME TOO! I WANNA SEE EVERYTHING!!!!! :D

I agree, the music for a battle should be a bit more fast paced and energetic than elevator music. The music should vary between battles too, but i don't know if that is possible, and it's not for me to decide. And seeing everyone elses' work would be nice too :)

There are plenty of music composers in the audio portal that would gladly help out for co-authorization. But we shouldn't think about this now, only after we get the parts together


Writing songs for cigarettes and credit would be cool.

How'd you guys start off your part? Right now I just it storyboarded so the two characters are just going to fight in some sort of science testing room but I feel like something should happen to spark the fight y'know?

well I'm talking more about introductions, like what did your characters do before fighting? How'd they meet? Why did they start fighting?

I still have some stuff choreographed and whatnot I'm just not sure about the beginning.

yhea, thats something we should think trhough

we cant have the viewer suddenly in the middle of an epileptic movement tornado so any fight scene would start at least with the opponents staring, right? the problem here is all our parts will be played together as a single movie in which case if we have an introduction to every fight it may get annoying...

then again, NOT having an introduction before every fight, even with the parts mashed up all togetherwill still look awkward. This is a problem that must be adressed...on the short run we can start with our moves and add the "introduction" later if needed, thats what our team is doing

ill share my ideas on this problem later since this post is already a textwall

Hmmm, good points.

Maybe to avoid this kind of thing it could just not play as one big long movie, but instead just have a scene selection page with all the parts.

And Kei, yeah I think you can join, though you need a partner first. (Don't take my word for it though, wait for OP)

yhea, thats a possibility although as a viewer i hate that kind of collab and i think most do, maybe its just my personal opinion...if so speak up but id rather rule out that option

which leaves us seemingly without much choice, well, i have a couple of ideas for a solution:

1. fuck it, fuck quality, how bad can it be anyways? how much you say? awkward? *cover ears* i cant hear you, i dont care

2. we play every fight "introduction" at the begining and keep it a big happy movie

3. we can submit every fight to the portal separetly, bear with me, we can all have the same preloader and menu and have links to the other fights, kind of the marvel vs capcom thing the goodies pulled out some time ago

4. keep thinking

It doesn't NEED to have a story with an introduction but if you want an introduction, you make one. If you don't want an introduction, don't make one. Simple.
I will put every battle in a different scene. In the main menu I will put a button with "PLAY ALL" and a button with "SELECT BATTLE".

I don't see anything here that a simple skip button wouldn't solve. If an individual doesn't like watching a fight as it's playing, then he or she can skip it. I definitely don't think splitting the collab into separate submissions would be a good idea, although it sounds interesting, it wouldn't feel like a collab to me.

An idea for the introduction might be to show all the characters in a line across the screen for a menu. Then, after the person watching presses play, at the beginning of each fight they see an image of the two characters at a side portfolio staring down each other with a VS. in between them for a few moments, then the battle starts. We could also have a scene select as well.

keep up the good ideas guys

maybe i havent stated the problem correctly (and you may not even percieve as a problem yourself, if so speak up)

the problem is having the characters fighting all of a sudden without some sort of introduction or somewhat still space before the movement turmoil a fight implicates would look bad and confuse the viewer

imagine you go to see a movie and as soon as you sit down the movie starts with a war scene, shit flying everywhere. composition-wise you need to introduce the viewer to a situation, specially if its shit moving too fast, thats why instead of the movie starting stright up with shit flying everywhere youd see something like a panoramic view saying "irak 2002, oil wars"

shit, my post walltext too fast, help me here lpfann, if even you dont understand where im coming from then by all means nevermind, a problem only happens if we agree its one
