180727 – I bought a fan

That’s it, really… There has been such a shortage in electric fans in me local locale. So when I finally saw one at ÖoB (local budget-shop) for roundabout 299 sek (roundabout $35) I had to acquire one.

It’s flimsy as hell and noisy to boot. But in a heat-wave like this one… I really have no choice when this was quite literally the only one available for the last several weeks… It’ll do until they restock on the nice ones.

And… I am doing my best shampoo commercial face ! 😀


Be seeing you!

180727 – Pop head

It’s been a while since I just did some horrific animation, hasn’t it? 🙂

Just something abstract


Just wanted to animate an abstract shape that loops in a fun way.  Only now that I uploaded it do I realize it kind of resembles a logo. But logo for what? I honestly can’t remember…


The inspiration is a few of those loops that Anno (not sure those linked are Anno’s but yeah… ) and Morimoto has done.


The movement may be a bit on the too fast side… but part of the excersize for me was to try animating in full 24fps instead of my beloved 8 fps

Animation – 180304


The excersises just keep on coming. Here, I left out the live action background and just wanted to build a short animation that lasted 10 seconds. All done in Adobe Animate. I kept it very sparse in the colors and the finish because I set myself a time limit. When the Academy Awards started, I had to be finished. And so I was.


And thank goodness Roger Deakins actually won for once!

Video – A Typical Saturday night


Just wanted to add a youtube video I uploaded where I practiced a bit of hand-held 8fps aesthetic. I think I went a bit overboard with the wipes. But it was a fun excersice nonetheless.

Itano Circus Test 2


Holy Moly! It's been half a year since the last post? Man. I need to get back into this gambit.


Well. Here's a quickie test. It's basically another Itano Circus. But it's done in a bit more unusual way.

  • I first filmed the background, using my GH4 in 1080p 2 fps video mode.
    – (In variable framerate mode it actually only records in the framerate that you set it to. It saves it as a standard 24 fps file for playback but the framerate difference can make either super-speedy footage (if recorded with framerate slower than the playback) or slow motion (if recorded with a faster framerate than the playback). And that works great for my experiment as I want it suuuper speedy in this case. 2 fps recording makes it 12 times faster. Playing that back at 8fps makes it… uhhh… ok, I don't know, but it looked like I wanted it to at least!)
  • Then I took it into after effects.
  • Time-reversed it (I walked forward during filming to be able to get footage that was traveling backwards without risking tripping over stuff in my messy apartment).
  • Then. I exported that as a png-sequence (I found a great youtube channel btw that mentions importing video into flash as png-sequences)
  • And then using that as the background, I drew the whole circus thingy in flash in 8 fps… sorry, Adobe Animate.
  • Then I exported it (the animation layers, that is) as a png sequence again and…
  • imported it to After Effects, layered it back on top of the original footage interpreted as 8 fps and finally exported it.


Kind of worked out better than expected in my opinion. I may be using this method more in ongoing projects… because I still suck at drawing backgrounds… 🙂


Anyways…


Be seeing you!

Malmsten Punch

Another animation excersise. A bit on the whibbily wobbily side. But it looks decent methinks?

22 frames in Animate CC

 

Oh, and the rough animation!:

 

ItanoCircusTest

Just another spontaneous excersize in animation. This time. Trying to emulate the famous “Itano Circus” trope. 78 frames of animation not counting the countless WiP-frames…

Why is this my hobby?!

Just me messing around with some animation. Animation drawn “on three’s”

Random Medium Lady

I’ve been tinkering around in VR lately. Namely the excellent 3D-modeling app called Oculus Medium. And yes. It is a really fun way to sculpt. Especially with some synth-wave in the headphones. 😀
