Nortega closer

What could I possibly say? Nortega silliness. It makes for some fun loops if you fiddle with the frames.


Modell keystest III

Complete keys and rough tweens for the entire spot. The logo treatment at the end is a mockup, and we’re still lacking the rain of splinters around the middle, but principle animation is essentially complete, barring corrections.


Modell keystest II

Second round of keys. This cut also includes cleanup tweens for frames 001-035, and runs out to the bat inside the store (078). This does not include the layer of splinters that rain down during the hold at 51 (staring at the bat). We’re just over the halfway point, and we’ve got about five flex points to adjust timing if necessary.


Modell keystest I

Keys and rough tweens for frames 001-038. About the first quarter of the total, estimated. Normally we’d break keystests up by cut, but since this piece essentially has no cuts, we’ll be posting as we go.

Because of the rough nature of the “clean” keys, the rough tweens fit in more seamlessly than usual. Nevertheless there’s a lot of elements not included here, such as a thicker defining line, color, shadows, etc. This keystest only serves to test motion and timing.



Added firing frames. Casings still to come.



Casings added. Bodies next.



Linestests for near BG characters falling to machinegun fire. With judicious timing these three can be doubled up for the half of the rotation that passes by before the transition.

Additional BG elements next.



Secondary BG characters with limited animation. One final plate and perhaps a nice explosion will round out the BG elements.


Fox’s “Wolf Guy: Saber”–cut SC03-c002

A key test and the subsequent tweened line test for cut SC03-c002 are shown in the following two gifs.

First, here is the cut with keys only.



Here is the same cut with tweens added.



[NOTE:  Muzzle flashes to be added with the next pass.]

PB c006 keystest

most all the frames for c001, there’s a touch of tweens on the BagMonster towards the end but that’s about it. The transition FX aren’t in place, but the timing is set.

The full video at the beginning might have this playing a bit slow on some computers, at least at the beginning, but you can always click the GIF to view it in a window of its own, which can help if the framerate dips.
