BZFlag cartoon.

Post by Peter »

Here is a BZFlag cartoon I made using stop-frame animation , this was made using `pivot` , it is a free stick-figure animation software.
Sorry about the quality of it , it was taken using a digital camera. If someone could tell me how to take footage of the actual computer that would be a great help.

The cartoon it's self is only 20 seconds long. It isn't supposed to be funny but is more there as a novelty of having a BZFlag cartoon , enjoy :).

I am in the process of making a longer better one.

Dude, it made me laugh already. I don't know exactly why. I especially liked the part where the tank jumped on the box, and then the other tanks jumped on the first one. Keep up the good work.

A good program to use is 'Fraps'. Try downloading that a see how that goes.

and for the cartoon, I watched it with some friends and we laughed, only because we didn't know what was going on :P

You should have ended the clip, when you shot your last text. Then rest was just that song which IMO was kinda lame :P

That was quite better than your other 1 :) Keep up the good work PETEY

lame and stolen. be careful where you get your music, so that you don't infringe on copyright.

Stolen ? People use music on tracks like that all the time , it isn't infringeing on copyrights
because it isn't stolen or being made of any profit.


And as for the "lame" , that isn't even a proper word and I couldn't use a piece of music to suit everybody.

besides the copyright issue, certain music fits with video clips. You wouldn't put really slow, relaxing classical music to a really intense car chase scene, right?
I can't really judge, since I don't know the song you used, but just know that sometimes certain music fits with the clip, and you shouldn't just put the music on there because you like the song.

Yep.

i think the best part was when the tank was going down those inclines and it looked like it was stuck in the gap for a moment
