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 ! 😀
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
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!
Be seeing yah!
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… 🙂
Be seeing you!
So I made that big annauncement about the SMA-project some time ago and then nothing really has happened. Have I given up on it? No. I just didn’t realize that the summer was going to be so attractive. Plus. Just like last summer. I decided to not take out any vacation days during these heated days of the year. So very little time has been spent with creative stuff overall. I just wanted to say that it still is ongoing… or at least it will start. Some time… at the end of summer. When walking outside and generally socializing may be lower on the priority list.
