An Animation Revolution

I'll make something else now...

For the record I am indifferent to the software. I have no problem with people wanting to create animation with it for fun as long as those with loftier ambitions aren't letting their skills stagnate. I spent a lot of time with 3D movie maker as a kid because I didn't know how else I could create animation and I really wish I had discovered flash sooner. Brad Bird began his first animated film at 11 years old so you're never too young to start!

So please remember that my animated counterpart is a caricature in more ways than one; I didn't really jump on a horse when Skyrim was announced and I'm not about to go postal on someone who wants to use some gimmicky animation software, just consider the alternatives.


Nah, but seriously, I'm not into animations but I consider myself a codemonkey with potential. A game developer, a fancy man would say. The quality of the games I produce are eh... mediocre at best. There are shortcuts in game development as well, just like you're describing there is in animaton. Still I wouldn't go for them. They're a limit on creativity and just to easy... causing a flood of the same type of content at the cost of views for those spending time to make the real thing.

I get the point of all peeps here saying they don't wanne pay for flash though. Well if you don't wanne pay for adobe flash and you wanne keep it legal then yeah... you should propably go for an alternative. Wanne keep it legal... just repeating a part of the sentence I just typed. Woops... that repeating was totally by accident.

Well said.

Now THIS is why I wanna get a program such as flash, and why I won't even think of using crap such a Go! Animate.

Gay lobster-arms?

Hell yes.

G*y lobster.

Man, you just said it all...

Really, the Go! Animate really limitates ppls imagination. I'm not going to use this piece of... something. I just can't! Really, if you want to begin, use Flash (like me). And try to learn some Action Script 3.0, it's REALLY USEFUL.
Since Flash CS4 HAS BONE ANIMATION! It helps like... A LOT. You don't need to animate frame by frame, you build and skeleton to your character and you're done! You don't need to use Go! Animate. If you really want to use it, FINE, but get aware that you are NOT going to evolve AT ALL.

Just stop being so lazy guys...

And Happy Harry, one day i'm gonna get on you level >:B
