I’ve been looking over the online tutorials on the Adobe website to refresh my memory of what I learnt in the workshops. It’s really helpful to be able to recap on things when I’m working away from university.

Just a quick flipbook animation I made to practice the transition of the pattern.

Stop Motion Workshop

Unfortunately my group was unable to get the animation made in this workshop off of the computer but I still wanted to reflect on the session. As I plan to use stop motion for my animation I didn’t want to miss this workshop and was interested to see what we would be doing. We basically used a program called iStopmotion and a set up of lights and a camera to produce a short animation using various toys and props. It was good practice with frames and creating movement to give the impression of life in inanimate objects. I would consider getting this software to use when creating my own animation as the ghost images and ability to edit frames was useful. 

Beetlejuice Animation

As stated in the previous post my beetlejuice animation was also unsuccessful when it came to rendering the animation at home. You can still see some of the movement created in the outcome but it isn’t really beneficial uploading it to my blog. I also learnt a lot about After Effects during this workshop and I’m so annoyed I’m not able to show this. This workshop was on making a 2D image animation appear to be 3D by altering the camera angles and depth and position of the images. It was quite confusing to get a grasp of but in the end I was really happy with my outcome.

For some reason when I took my spaceship project home from the workshop to render on after effects at home this has happened. The same thing has also happened with my beetlejuice animation. I’m going to have to go back onto the computers in university as see if it makes any difference, or if I can somehow recover the images.

Despite the outcome now I’ve tried to make the animation I learnt a lot from this workshop expanding further on key frames and how much you can edit using these simple settings. As previous the workshop was pretty fast paced and was easy to get lost or make mistakes. Luckily I managed to keep to track with the examples and got an insight into just how much you create in After Effects. So far I don’t know that I will be using many editing processes in After Effects as most of the movement in my final animation will be hand drawn on each frame, though I still plan to do some editing in After Effects.

I plan to use colour in my animation so I wanted to experiment with adding colour to the animation. This is as far as I got before my camera battery ran out. It was made using a whiteboard pen and felt tips. It’s also useful in understanding how to use the frame rate most efficiently and the timings I’ll have to figure out for my final animation.

Another practice whiteboard animation. I wanted to practice moving the pattern and the transitions between each frame. This is the sort of pattern I will be including in my final animation but with more transition across the board having the pattern move to appear and disappear.
