W3NDY's attempt to animate

So I've finally made something. My first gif, after maybe a month? of SFM tutorial watching. Getting confused and frustrated then deleting sh!t and getting angry then sleeping then repeat. My brain finally figured the basics of animation. This is my first, I think it still needs more joint movement to emulate smooth flow of movement but I like it enough to post it. This is for everyone that visited my sex poses post and especially Dasdanar who promises a life of enslavement for ShepAshGifs. I'd still consider this as WIP. I'm tired and will work on this again some other time.

"Update v1.2: Fixed clipping" "Update v1.1: Added movement to shepard's body. Tweaked existing animations. Sped up animation to 1.5x. Still no graph editor. Hopefully will make smooth loop once graph editor is used."

It's actualy really nice for a first one. Im not really good myself, but based on my experience at the beggining it's a good idea to find some actual gif and try to copy it AND you really want to learn using graph editor, it makes it 10 times easier to loop the animation and make it smooth. Anyway, my advice is: Try copying actual porn gif.

Well here they are .. w3ndy's first gifs! :shock: First of all I would never be able to animate anything close to the gifs you've just posted. I'm sure it's hard as hell to learn and takes a lot of time when you're just starting. I've seen some starting animators here, some were bad .. some were good .. and some were very good and skilled and they just rocked this site and some of them still do. I think I would set you with a rank of better "good" as the animation goes (my Sheply bias aside). :P My Sheply bias wise .. we'll I'm like .. :woahh: I don't know what to say so I'll try to describe it with this emote: :blbl: I really believe you have a very promising career ahead of you! :bravo:

Thanks wachawant. These are some good advices and I'll give them a go when I try to smoothen out this first gif of mine. That is the enigma as of now the "graph editor". Most advice to use it so it must be good or is the secret weapon of most artists, but as of right now I've got zero knowledge on how to use it. But it's ok I'm sure there are some pretty good tutorials out there.

Dasdanar!! haha I've finally gotten it to move! well not that great but still I think this is a milestone for me. Hopefully I can improve the gif for you guys to enjoy. It is tiring... learning then doing. Most of the times failing but someone said don't quit just sleep on it. I think he may be right, LOL. Once again, thanks guys!

So this one is of Shep and Liara. You probably already saw the preview on my poses thread. This is actually only the first part of what I really wanted to do. Part 1 already has 500 frames and Animation Shop 3 can only take so much. It's crapping up an error about not enough memory so I split the video into two and just merged them into Photoshop. This animation still has rooms for improvement. Hopefully as I get to use SFM regularly I can achieve that smooth as real life animation that I want. Probably need to learn Graph Editor though. I hope you enjoy this animation as much as I did making it. Credits to Original owners of the models and also to their Modders. Thanks to GanonMaster too for GFYCat, since this GIF would originally be 46MB, now as HTML5 it's just 5MB. Round 1 Knockout [gfycat:393zwbx2]PessimisticDapperAmberpenshell[/gfycat:393zwbx2] GIF Link: http://giant.gfycat.com/PessimisticDapp ... nshell.gif Notes: No Liara is not dead so this is not Guro, she's just lost conciousness because Shep realeased a [glow:393zwbx2]MASSIVE[/glow:393zwbx2] load inside of her. I'd probably add more angles of this animation. But the camera would probably be steady.

Hot idea, but it was a struggle to suspend disbelief. For a second attempt at this sort of thing I've got to say it was pretty darn good!
Thanks, yeah it was a milestone. But I still got tons of learning to do, like using the graph editor. Most advanced users advice on learning how to use it because it can create smoother animation. This was also my first walk animation LOL. If you can see Shep walking away, like a damn robot. LOL That is one of my main goals right now to make models walk like a real life human being. Walking seems easy for us but damn it is hard to master on animation. First time I used particle too! (Barbell's Cum Effect) which you can see on Liara. My threads are actually not a presentation or a gallery. It's just a way for me to see how I'm doing, like a sketchbook. I want to see if I improved or actually worsen. LOL So if you like it then I'm probably doing something right. :) Thanks also for writing your first ever post on DigitalEro on my thread! See you around! FAPON! :mast:
