Here is the link to the YouTube video we watched in class about Cuts and transitions. Enjoy and learn something.
Here is a quick list of the cuts and transitions mentioned in the video.
OK, here is the list of the post midterm assignments to complete in the next 4/5 weeks.
This is a quick stop-motion/time-lapse of Tim Whyman’s chess piece being 3D printed. There is a tiny little camera inside the MakerBot printer that you can pop photos every so often to create time-lapse animations. FUN!
Instructions to set up a render farm using the computers in OP1224 or 1210 if you are feeling frisky. It is dense, but try it and let me know how it goes.
So, using your well-honed cel-frame animation skills you have developed so far… you are going to design and animate 15 seconds of a character (little story if possible), doing a walk, run and jump with something funny happening (the gag). 24 fps, on twos, Format: HD 1080 x 1920 pixels. Here is the link to the pdf of the Animation stage in the correct HD format. This is due on Friday, September 22.
Here is the Blender Shortcut document. Sorry, it took so long to get it posted. BlenderGuru_KeyboardShortcutGuide_v2
For Friday… work on a character run cycle cel-frame animation and a Blender double ball bounce cycle. If you are behind on the daily assignments, work to get caught up and post your animations on the blog.
We watched new YouTube videos about video aspect ratios and the history of green screening from Filmmaker IQ and traditional matte painting special effects (FX). There are a ton of concepts shown in this video that you may have already experienced in photo editing in Photoshop. Here are the links if you want to watch them again.
Awww, I forgot to have you tell me your stories today. We will do that first thing next class period. See you Friday with everything done.
