Eart Preview
« on: June 10, 2009, 01:12:30 am »

 Hello there. :)
 I've been working on this short movie for a wee while now, and last night i thought i'd make a short preview.
  Some things could use tweeking.
 The movie itself is now at 9 minutes long. Mostly done, but more sound to be added, and movie needs ending.
 I've just realised that youtube have a 10 minute limit, so i may be able to finish it under that time, or i may have to release it in parts.
 We'll see....

 Heres the link


and i've posted a pic, which hopefrully will be shown below.

 Bye for now
johnar

It is rare that anybody attempts something as large as this project in Anim8or, and extremely rare that they reach anything like a finished state.  Seriously, kudos for even attempting this!  I love the toy-like quality of the modelling, and the Eart character is endearing and likeable.  Without the ability to show facial expressions, the use of gestures to show emotion will be vital, and from what I've seen in the preview it looks like you have got that well under control.  I look forward to watching the whole thing, and it would be a shame to have to cut it short because of the arbitrary rules set down by the gods of YouTube.  Splitting it into parts would be preferrable, IMO.  Excellent work Johnar, really inspirational stuff!

Looking through your videos I found the telephone one. It's very good.

 Shucks guys.
 Now that my head has swelled to twice its normal size, i'm totally reinvigorated.  ;D

  Normally, after a couple of months working on 1 project, the inspiration can begin to fade.  But  now i feel as refreshed as i did on day one.  ;)

 I've got the ending clearly in my mind now, and should be able to get it all in under the 10 minute thing.
 Thanks heaps for your positive, kind and inspirational comments.
 And, HI THERE RUDY SCHNEIDER!!  ;D Great to see your still here.

 Eart should be less than a month away.

 I've only just noticed it myself.
 When i sign in to youtube and hit the upload button, the upload page has some rules and restrictions on there.
 Max size = 1GB
 Max length = 10 minutes.
 I might be wrong, but thats how i read it. ?

if you sign up for a partnership programs you can have videos much longer than 10 minutes and in very high definition as well.

Yeah, looking really good. I like your animation - the walking and other technique, etc. Have been adapting some things based upon your tutorial for walking figures.
