Spark Animated - Old Zap footage All in Anim8or
« on: May 23, 2008, 02:30:27 pm »

This is a trailer for "Spark: The Movie" I made in 9th grade, using Anim8or. Back then, all the characters were humanoid dinosaurs. Weird, huh? Anyway, All I made was some footage of Zap before I realized it sucked, scrapped the project, and made all the characters human. Enjoy... even though it kinda' sucks...

That is a good start and good movie, but I have ideas to what you could do to improve the movie:

I would set the z-near (in scene-environment-advanced) to 1. It will make the camera render things that are 1 unit from the camera instead of the default that is 10.

I would nice if made the character jump over the letter ďAnim8or movieĒ.

Iím also wondering why you donít subdivide you the character that is running on buildings, Iíbelive that itís not possible to use bones to a object, so I would subdivide the character, maybe tweak some points make a BACKUP and then convert it to mesh.

It could also be nice with some white with a little bit blue windows on the buildings and maybe set the specular to 0.8

That was what I had of ideas  :)

Mate, you really have to work on your animating skills, especially timing, otherwise good job.
