First part in a mini series, mostly just to get better at SFM.
We should abandon this thread and start making separate threads
And no, we don't need millions of threads for each video.
A video purely made to try and figure out how SFM works.
And well, I know how it works now. Time to start a large project not involving any sudden unnecessary nukes.
EDIT: Except I forgot YouTube likes to darken videos.
So this is the result of me spending 15 hours to learn SFM. This is the Sven model that I recompiled for one of my older Gmod videos.
meet the heavy edits, linear transitions, and terrible lipsyncing.
i can see that the sfm beta has fallen into worthwhile hands.
This is my second attempt in SFM. Youtube messed with the colors for some reason so just imagine it with the normal TF2 color palette. I know it's not great, but everyone has to start somewhere.
I completely missed this thread when I was ready to post my video, hence the separate thread I created for it. My sincerest apologies.
Posting this here too.
Why? Fuck you is why
This is my first test video, I'm uploading my next one right now. Should be done in less than an hour!
Nothin' too fancy, mostly cinematography practice.
This isn't mine, I saw it over at reddit
Spent my day on this one. I had no set plot or anything besides making fun of the inevitable flood of RvB parodies. It kind of got away from me in the best way possible. Almost every major event in this video was inspired by a mistake I made during the production.
Edit: Some explanation as to way the video is a hilarious mess.
The Blu sniper prolly said like 10 different things over the course of editing, Before I settled on grumbling.
I had decided the hat would talk after I accidentally left it locked to the other animating sniper's head causing it to bob. I had it talking with Diglet sounds, then sped up pyro lines, and quotes from that MLP documentary. I finally settled on the "Super Saiyan kid" after I found a archive I made of the youtube video deep on my computer.
The short originally ended after the soldier said "Oh" but while lighting the rest of the scenes I found a bunch of train models, it was then I knew what I had to do.
While touching that part up I figured I might as well do a classic floating-hat shot. Why not right?
Super-special preview of my next project. This is only part 1 of 3.
Next release will be the full thing though
I'm just messing around to learn things
Just some practice for face/closeup animation
Full version of the preview I posted earlier.
I did make a thread but it seems everyone flocks here... so.. here you go.
I'm not a pro animator at all, but that's why I did this, for valuable practice.
The graph editor is fucking amazing for animation.
Someone needs to make Breaking Bad with the Engineer as Walt and the Scout as jesse
Here is my test video
