[SOTW Discussion] Talk inside...

Racerx, is there a reason we can't vote on your entry? I think it's cool. People who like it will vote, people who don't like it, or people who like other entries more, won't give it a vote.

 

I'm assuming that, as @Racerx says, "It's 90% done in PDN" ................ that it would contravene Rule #6:

 

6. Your entry must be made using Paint.net.  Please don't use an outside image editor and try passing it off as PDN work.

 

I suspect his animation is not done in PDN - but would like more clarification (please @Racerx) before the voting begins ;)

Oh, I didn't think of an animation software as being an image editor. The images were mostly PDN, only the animation I thought was used by the one animation program, a program that I think has been mentioned around here before. But anyways, the pictures of the entry are PDN, that would be the "art" aspect right? The animation is like a video effect.

I believe @Racerx did not use the animator that goes with PDN, that's why he says not to vote for it.

 

I think he uses one called Avisynth - but perhaps he can clear this up before voting time.

Yes, I made everything 100% in PDN, but used a different program to do the animation of the parts. It could all be done in PDN, but I don't want to spend the time it would take. The animation s/w I used is called Aviutl and it is also free, though not suited for the beginner. It makes it a lot easier to animate all the parts.

 

This is just a support entry and I don't want it admitted in the voting poll.

 

Thanks.

Maybe you can post the cool animated one to show it and share it, but then post a still version as an entry. (one without motion.) :)

We are allowed to post more than one creation after all. ;)

Hehe, that's the old Laplacian Pyramid Filter - not good for brakes. Used this previously but added to it. My friend who owned this bike loaned it to another of his friends who crashed it. We are all sad about it. Rider is fine, bike is totalled :( Owner was riding another bike (trail bike) compound fracture to his arm & I have lost count of the number of operations he has now had. So the sig is really a tribute to him. Time will heal him eventually :D

Yes, the Laplacian Pyramid Filter has a tendency to revile detail lost to human eyes. Hope your friend is OK and all is well............

I was impressed by the shiny metal things on this week's submissions and its not easy for me to vote.

 

Gears and clocks were the norm in the theme but no one with robotic steam punk machines.

After the entry period had arrived Pixey, I will be happy to open the poll and take over the running of the comp once more. I would be sad to see you leave the forum though :(

Aside from being my friend & inspiration, your input into the forum with your knowledge has been invaluable. Your images & ideas are fabulous & a testament to the perseverance & tutelage from AFG. I hope, like many of us here that it will only be a break. 

 

Thank you DrewDale for stepping up. Like Pixey, you will be a wonderful host again.

Drewdale, welcome back to hosting.

 

Dear Pixey! You've determined your reasons to stop by at the forum. I am sad. fmhh5nf6.gif Drewdale, Welcome.

Pixey I hope your leave is just temporary, this forum will have a huge loss without you and your talent. What ever you choose, I wish you all the best.

I will try to open the poll tomorrow (7th December) for some reason, I am unable to set it up. Will contact a mod to get it looked into.

No harm carrying it out another week or so, I like the diversity of the entrants. The more, the merrier.

 

Bummer that Pixey ain't here though...............

As far as I can tell, the poll never shows up in the preview. You'll need to actually post the poll for it to show up.
