About

Post your animations here, they must be of quality work, you can use any animation program including; Pivot (PC) or Stykz (MAC + PC), EasyToon (PC) and many other animation programs to come! If they aren’t of quality please save it for another thread.

What do we look for in an animation?

Movement: Is it a really choppy animation or is there little spacing between movements.

Creativity: How well is you general idea around the animation (what is your animation about I.E. two people fighting or some turtle walking down the road.)

Quality: Here we only want quality work, this rating mostly applies to Flash animations,
-Do you use layers? Or is it all just 1 layer.
-Is the art really good? Or is it just a line moving back and forth.

Use of the program: What tools and features did you use?
-Did you use them well? (this also applies to Pivot and Stykz even though they are both simple programs)

Entertainment: Was your animation mesmerizing to watch? (Could people take their eyes off your work)

If your animation has all of these things then it will be at a 5/5 rating or somewhere around there, depending on an area you missed.

Titles

Titles are earned through posting QUALITY animations that are smooth and follow my examples of a perfect animation (located in the first post) If you get good enough at animating in a specific program you will earn a specific title for that program. ( Various titles that can be earned are located below). All members that have earned titles will be posted under that specific title. I.E
Pivot Master:
Laxaria
then under that I put all of the other pivot masters. If you earn a title then you cannot brag about it, what you will do is be sort of a trainer and an aid to the other members and you will help them get better at that specific program (only if you wish to help) if you don’t want to help you just keep your title, please no bragging about it too much if you do I will remove your title.

Pivot Master:

Stykz Master:

EZToon Master:

Flash Master:

GIMP Master: (animated .gifs)

You should.

You should have planned out what you needed from the start.

Well I didn’t so what’s it matter? It doesn’t really, I left enough I shouldn’t have needed too many more reserves.
