Edit: you have to click it to see it

someguy
12-11-2007, 17:52:42
New, that was pretty good. The only thing is, your stickman. I dont know what it is, I wanna say, he flies off the bike to early, or it was how he flew off. Have him in a different flying position.

big, Your animations are good, but make them smoother. They are kinda choppy throughout the whole animation, Make sure the motions fluidly go from one movement to another. Also, they can get slow at parts. Decrease the frame rate so it is not so slow.

New1000
12-12-2007, 11:52:39

hmmmm, work on smoothness, and decrease the frame rate. Your sticks are to stiff, and so is the camera. work on that. You should also work on walking. look into some tuts for that.

bige: try a slower frame rate on the flips. Don't make it extremely slow unless you want slo-mo kind of thing. But It skips, and thats not good.
And work on the landing.

Great animations, guys!

someguy
01-30-2008, 02:33:00
ummm...yeah.
Well, it's all choppy. The physics are unreallistic, you need to make your own sticks. The movements are bad, and the camera is stiff.
Not bad if this is your first.

Mistery
01-31-2008, 00:43:41
Someguy, I think it would be better to give some constructive feedback instead of listing what is bad in your opinion.
Constructive feedback contains ideas how to make it better, shows up things/methods for improvement etc. - this would help people much more, and would sound less rude.
Thanks :)

someguy
02-08-2008, 04:39:01
I'm not trying to sound rude.
I've been in flash and pivot a while, and hung out mostly on animation forums where that was considered constructive critisism.
But let me go into more depth...
It's choppy, make the movements from frame to frame a little smaller. The physics, it's like...there's no gravity. When they jump, they should fall to the ground at a fast rate, making your own sticks just makes the animation look ten times better, trust me. The movements, there a bit slow decrease the frame rate so it goes a little faster. Stiff camera, make action lines, as I like to call them, like if someone gets punched, you can make them soar a small distance, give it action lines, and you have a moving camera.

im not bumping. just reviving. i made another pivot. well a test anyway. i made my own file stk. it isnt very good but its only a V1. V2 will be better when i get the chance to make it. anyway here it is:

11451

this is Practice Shot 1. i havet completed it. needs:
Background
More Smoothness
and better gun piece that pops out of file.

if theres anything else that it needs please tell me.
