“Doncha just love Animations?
Posted on June 2nd by Philip
We all love animation. Delighted us from childhood, through adolescence and into adulthood. .We laugh, we cry, we boo and hiss but we definitely smile. Charles M. Schultz gave us Bugs Bunny (I just love “Kill the Wabbit” after Wagner, a triumph. I looked for it on Youtube but no luck). My friend Russell was doing a PhD on Shultz, he made me a 3 hour video of his work that entertained me for hours. What a team Pixar have got too! In Ireland at 6pm you can watch the News or The Simpsons Doh! Anyway we all have our favourites.
CurrentlyI love the work of Michael Sormann (his web site is here) who has mastered 3D animation, well actually its a short movie. I have a copy of my favourite on my other site but it has a bug – you only get half of it , you can have lunch while it is downloading. Its a .mov file so it is absolutely huge but you do get the quality. You should visit his site.
Well, since you asked, yes I am an animator too. My first work: not-a-virgin-now-2.htm is the result of me discovering Wink, an amazing screen capture program which I will put to professional use. I quickly followed it with undo.htm A tribute to my first sports car , a Damson Triumph Spitfire convertible, sigh. I heartily recommend Wink and like prezi it is so much fun to use you don’t give a damn if only your best friend and your daughter see it. It is free, can’t be sold on and the authors seem to think it has bugs. Haven’t found any myself in the capture, render to flash .swf, , publish as .htm and PDF and PostScript after compressing the whole damn thing!!!!! Whetted your appetite, haven’t I ? Well I am not going to tell you where to get it. You’ve got Google, find it yourself! LOL. Mine were done with a ten year old graphics program I love, I’m gonna do some more ~ only for the practice of course, He He. I am pretty sure I can convert it to a flash .fla or .flv file (get a bit confused sometimes, I only really understand .swf) ~ then I can embed it in prezi. No, its not another Internet app. It’s a “show-to-your-friends-down-the-pub-when-you-take-your-lap-top-to-show-them-prezi” kind of app. Seriously though it is a superb presentation / software tutorial package
OMG Everything is Linked!
Well, its 2 am so I am off to bed. Yawn… G’night. ………..Well not really I am off to play with Wink
P.S. Update: Had three hours sleep and created Wink on prezi ~ R & D ~ now for some reason I couldn’t get it to work on my main server so put it on my Irish server. Ah sure, it may be a bit slow, but its friendly. ”
