I was having trouble finding some of the setting but after that it was simple
I learned how to add text and make the camera zoom in. Along with how to make thing fade in and out while moving.
This is my animation final, it is a sunset going behind the mountains. I was having trouble getting the frames to work the way I wanted but once i did it was smooth sailing.
I was able to make the bunny hop forward. I learned how to use animate and how to upload it to YouTube. I struggled to get the background to be in the center. Once I got it I had a pretty easy time.
The story takes place in a Space Cafe, where the soldiers currently are at lunch. Two of the soldiers get in a fight over tea due to the fact that it is the last one in stock for about a month until a new shipment arrives. So, instead of physical violence and risking getting kicked out of their favorite cafe, they instead resort to a dance battle, presenting entertainment and a problem solved with no harm done to the cafe or people around the area, and ironically the lunch lady finds a second tea, which the winner also takes.We used final cut pro for editing,lighting,and scene arrangement, we used more of a stop motion approach for are short film and had 2 shots per frame.We ended up using a piece of cardboard as the background with some paper taped to it. To take the pictures we used a camera that was in Mr. L’s room as well as a voice recorder to get the background noise. We used clay to make the characters that we used in the background. We also used tea to make the tea that was used.
for the thaumotrope I made a dog hitting a ball with its nose. I had trouble getting the ball line up with the dogs nose. Once I got past the lining up of the ball it was fairly easy.
I made the pencil act like a fish for anticipation. I was having trouble with getting the pencil to move at a good speed. once i finally got the pencil to move how I wanted it to this was fairly easy.
For this I made the sticky note speed up and slow down. I had trouble at first trying to get the sticky note in the right place while keeping the camera in the same place. Once i had a reference for where the camera should be it was fairly easy trying to make the sticky note move.
What I did was made the ball bounce up and down while squashing and stretching. I struggled to make the ball look fluid going up and down. I was able to fix it by making the frames closer together.
