[SOTW Discussion] Talk inside...

Recommended Posts

The other thread was closed and I couldn't reply. I wanted to say congratulations to welshblue, yellowman, and barbieq25! Your entires were inspiring and all had wonderful workmanship while also being beautiful to look at. I really enjoyed looking at all of the entries as if they were in an art gallery and they made me think, admire, and smile.

This new comp has an interesting twist. :) This is a very busy week for me. Hopefully I can enter something. I want to thank you for these fun competitions.

You have special permissions as a Competition Host Welshy ;) I'm (reasonably) sure that editing locked threads in your region is one of them.

I guessed that was so. Thanks for clarifying EER

Next time I'll leave the previous challenge alone for a week ... I was too keen to keep things clean and tidy

Bad timing ;-) SOTW #62 - Topic "Animation"

I'm just finishing the APNG support in PDNAnimator. AGIF will take one or two weeks more...

Download unfreez (the link is in the SOTW#62 topic header) ;) depending on how many entries they will be, it might end up getting a deadline extention.

Edit: Not meaning to boast, but my entry only took two hours from idea to completion. Only 22 layers were harmed during the making of that sig. :D

Double edit, just realised what you meant midora, only taken a few days for my brain to realise :lol:

SOTW #62 - Topic "Animation"

Are flash animations allowed; given that the graphic itself will be made in PDN while the animation itself will be driven by flash... and if so, how do I upload a flash animation --> the link code?

Cheers,

V

Flash animations are allowed, but I'm not 100& sure if or how they can be uploaded onto the forum :/

Something inside the darkness of my mind tells me that Rick disabled the option of uploading Flash files on the old forum. Not sure about this one

... I could be totally wrong. If so I have some strange dreams ... which in itself is pretty worrying

I think that you might be right. I've attempted to embed a flash sig with zero success, while I've had no problems on other boards using the same code.

A little help out here for SOTW#62 Animation.

I used unfreez but I have also just tried Beneton movie gif there is little difference, but some new members may find that more easy to work with. :) the download link can be found at the bottom of the first post here http://forums.getpai...-with-paintnet/ Below is a screenshot with some arrows & text that I added to help navigate the prog.

ONLY download the standalone installer. ;)

Reason for edit - Added only download the standalone installer -

My bad, haven't checked the other thread and your discussions.

That would be so great midora, because APNG/AGIF plugin is not working with me at all, looking forward to see your version.

Thanks so much for the great work and efforts.

@ nitenurse, thanks, well explained, are you using XP ?, because it never worked on my PC W7, but it was very good on XP, I used to use it before.

XP ? omg, that's so way back then :lol: It runs ok on my win7pro. I do only have the standalone version though, not sure if that has any influence over it's performance (I did read that the full install has other bundled junk, so I kept clear of that)

Glad you like the explanation, I'm hoping that it may inspire a few more entries because you can load not only .png, but other (jpg ugh) formats too, I think it's simular to win movie maker but for short animates :)

reason for edit - bad spelling :/

You should never wait if there is just an announcements of sw ;-)

I just uploaded a new version of PDNAnimator (here) which allows import of agif and apng and export as apng.

I tried it with your battle sig and it works fine as apng (and it is 30% smaller ;-)

But at the end you still need agif because of the browser support...

I will post this here so that I don't keep bumping up my own comp, but SOTW#62 seems to have stalled and it will most likely have a deadline extension due to lack of entries / interest :/ Members want comps to keep going, but there are less and less entering them. I will look at the entries again on the original deadline day and decide then if it's worth extending. (or even closing) :(

I don't think it's people not being interested - Animation is quite a difficult theme; 6 or 7 entries would be a very good turn out IMO.

A link to YM's animation tut' could give people fresh inspiration if they're stuck for idea. I would post a link here but I've got BrainBlock and can't think what it's called :unimpressed:

There is links to tutes at the top of SOTW#62 post, there is also a screenshot on this page for another animator ;)

@ WelshBlue, I have only one writen tutorial for animations, I think you're referring to this, I really forgot about it, looks like we now know more plugins and capabililties with PDN, like the Circle Text plugin..... but I agree the tut may give some inspiration, thanks mate.

BTW, midora's PDNAnimator, is amazing, very fast and smooth, and you can use the plugin to review your work , just save the PDN file then drag and drop it to the plugin, and when you are satisfied with your work export the PNG file, or use any animator app. to generate the animation as gif.

Edit: misspelling, I don't why Auto spelling is not supported in this forum.
