Made use of the ULead GIF Animator… Rreduced file sizes by cutting our colours (which doesn’t look that bad from the original), and reducing canvas size. I altered bits of the content from the original shinryuken, mainly cinematics and dummy poses when hit.

Read that old Akuma II Ultra topic again, Mr List suggested checking out ULead GIF Animator, I put some ugly finishing touches on it. Watcha think?

I was looking through the 100s of images I uploaded on imageshack and I came across my old pivot animations I used to do for shits and giggles whenever I came up with something. I stopped because I ran out of ideas as to do what. I did one of a guy doing a dp and instantly reminded me of this forum. Pivot is a program on PC where you can animate stick figures or any objects that is made. People have made rifles and master chiefs but I like stick figures on its own. Here’s some of my old stuff. I might try doing this stuff again when I have some free time in the near future.

I hope i’ll pick up on this again and do SF-based movements. I’ll try doing Ken’s Ultra I since that’s what drawn me to SFIV in the first place. or a Shippuujinrai Kyaku
I made some other ones where there is speaking and stuff. I invite viewers to make up fitting dialogue of it.

haha i like how you show depth in the Pivot universe. That’s a weird kick though, where’s it from? or is that just some made up stuff?

Flounderesque Roundhouse! i call it.


#8

thanks.
it’s just made up, i haven’t figures quite how to show spinning properly yet.
last part was footie inspired a little.


#9

spinning on the X and Y axis is easy, but using the Z axis is kinda tough with pivot. The old dp animation i did looks okay but all it looks like really is sprites but flipped on the y-axis when the fist turns past the body.

How long you been doing pivot?


#10

since you posted this thread,lol.


#11

wow seems not many people dig on SRK pivot… all ever so obssessed with sprites as it seems


#12

#13

lol what choppy mj dance.


#14

yeah, the preview looks much faster animated than when you save it.
any advice?


#15

lmao, I made an animation to guile’s ultra with the sound, I’ll see if I can find it and post it up.


#16

if you’re seriously interested in Pivot animation check out Stickpage forums they got tutorials on many different animation programs commonly used, including pivot.

i haven’t made anything smooth as balls because I have to dedicate so much time into it which I don’t feel its worth, anything you show them will have constructive criticism tied along, but its good feedback almost always if you put effort into your animations.


#17

new shiet. spent 2 nights doing this… and going a bit overboard at the end lol

Can you guess who the dummy is supposed to be? No it’s not Zangief… he’s too fat to be that skinny.


#18

Hah, I used to animate stick figures, years back, I was pretty good at it too, but if you want to do anything properly good, look into getting flash, or at least the trial. I’ll download pivot, and see if I can still do it.

Yeah, I still hate this program.
