BOING BOING BOING BOING- IT JUST BOUNCES FOREVER~!!!!!


I've been brain farting hardcore in mais related stuff (and normal stuff) lately and its been terrible!! :C
So I remembered "hey, you have flash, yer out of practice, if you can't make a single image, make one move!!" and I made one just now and it took me like 20 mins XD


I also learned how to resize the stage in flash AND how to move EVERY frame and motion tween in one go and resize everything as well!! IM SO HAPPY I KNOW IT NOW!!! :iconhappytearsplz:
I can do so much more with it now :3
And Its ALOT smoother than i thought looking back at it, but in a few weeks im gonna think its mehhhh XD

Song that helped me make it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zSwrz…
(just ignore the vid if you don't like ponies, i played it for teh song.... but i love the video~)

Oooooooh this is so cute and SO COOL!!! :D

Makes me want to have a go at Flash again lol... 

Mais seem perfect for practicing animation, being all round and with few limbs... Basically you should do more, is what I'm saying XDDDD

Thank you very much~!

Omg if you had seen the first run though of this, holy sheet it would be too fast and too jittery! ;U;
It could be smoother but it would consume the rest of my night XD

Still, better than anything I could do. I've never been too privy to 2D animation, but I'm guessing you had to draw each frame? or is there a tool in flash that allows you to move things around?

I did do all the frames except near the end when the mais slides backwards, thats a tool called a motion tween, it allows the single image to slide, grow turn and twist for any duration of time and depending on how many you use, you can make an animation completly with nothing but tweens and symbols, which are singular images that can be changed out in points of the animation to help change smoothly! :3

I stick to frame by frame hand drawn ani's though cuz im still rusty with tweens and symbols, but a REALLY good example of using them effectively is believe it or not My little pony friendship is magic! NOTHING BUT TWEENS AND SYMBOLS~!! :3

Mind you though its still technically frame by frame to get everything to work smoothly, but a lot of time and complications are saved in the progress in doing what they do since they dont have to draw every part of the character over and over again like I do, and have "puppets" of the characters on hand at all times.
Like this one is a puppet of one of them that people use in there animations: dileak.deviantart.com/art/Prin…

I personally got a discord puppet to play around with and you can see if you look at an episode of the show that most of the time when something moves like a walk or talk, there consistent and smooth, because there all pre-drawn and are just being placed in different positions and are using the motion tweens to get them to act like real puppets on strings. :3


Its a brain full to read but should help ya understand just the tip of the iceburg to learning what animation really takes ^^

This is adorable. It would be super fantastic if there was just a line of bouncing mais from all over the pond. Downside the lines a little then you can have parents and babies bouncing together.

...do you have a .png file or something for this? Can I colour this all the colours of the mais rainbow?!

Omg that would take so long to do! Buuuuuuuut doable~
I learned how to size and move things so just tweaking a few things and making a baby bounce cycle can be done! :3

I tried to make one for png but for some reason it came out as like each frame as a picture and not a condesned version. Trust me I WANNA make this usable for the pond, i just can't figure it out, maybe you know how?
I would love to see this menagerie of mais rainbows~!!

Hmm.... well if you save it as png actually that might not work. Try it as a gif, and if not, save it as a gimp or sai file with all the layers intact. That way people can take each frame and colour it, or duplicate the frame and over lay them (as I would be doing). I don't know how to work flash, otherwise I'd have some better advice XD I know some people make a big png file with the layers set out next to each other so they don't overlap, which is like uploading each frame individually but then compiling them into one image. That should be doable too. I don't think there is a good way to condense them all down.

A baby bounce cycle would be perfect! hhhhhhhhh....

Tee hee, so much boing~

It looks really hard at first when you open the program, but once ya get the hang of it you can make almost anything move! :3
Though i wish i knew how to make it photoshop or GIMP friendly to make it an animated base for the mais members to use and colour in, still dunno everything bout it ;u;
I just don't know what to export it as! X3

Thank yuu~ The cutest blank mais you'll ever see ^^

I just know how to make frame animations in PS ^^;

Hmm, if you can do that in PS as i've seen before with those Batoo GIFs, then the concept is practically the same in any flash program, just a few extra odds and ends to "simplify" things X3

Are there? I would imagine there would be a few german tutorials out there, odd :I


You've given me a challenge... >:3

I can try to give you pointers if you have a flash program yerself if you get stuck,  it just takes me a few mins to be able to figure out how to explain it across the internet X3

Ahhhhhh, there always the hardest ones to find ^^;
Hmmm, have you tried to look up videos on youtube?
They can show you what to do and you can visually see what the person in flash is doing as well as hearing what there demonstrating :3
It helped me a few times thats fer sure,but somethings i had to research on guides ( I had to find a way to be able to resize EVERY frame at the same time for this one )
