Unsurprisingly, it's been 10 days and I still haven't posted a preview. After getting annoyed with the problems I ran into with the animation itself (some motion-tweened stuff would be too much for the animation to handle, so even at 5 fps it would be laggy as hell) as well as problems with exporting it (always something with the audio, either sound effects would be missing and/or the sound effects at one point would go off-sync. which screws up the entire sync with the video because I usually have the main music playing in the background and I'd have to try again, ugh), I at first decided to end the animation early. I was nearly done with the severely shortened Part 2 when the program froze and quit on me, rendering a good chunk of work I did on many multiple projects for a good few hours that day (one project was the animation itself, and the other four projects were libraries of images/sound clips/sprites/symbols of specific things -i.e. Sonic Library-had sprites and voice clips of Sonic, of course- I made some significant updates on) lost. Rage that I kept to myself ensued.
After I got over my lost work and felt OK with using Flash again, I decided to go back to Flash and went back to doing what I've been doing with the animation for the past several months-revising it (yay
), and decided to finish it properly instead of prematurely. Now that school's out, I may have some more time to work on it and get a chunk of it done. Hooray.
I do have something to show as of the moment-my other full sprite battle that was a second part of another one-Sonic and Shadow vs. Mecha Sonic.
Not too fond of this one, I actually perfer my older animation Sonic vs Shadow (Part 1, you can see it in the original post of this thread) over this sprite battle. The first part, due to sprite/program limitations (it was made in Pivot 3.1 Beta) lacked a background, so I didn't add a background for consistency with it. I also didn't think the actual action in this one is as good as in Sonic vs. Shadow, and I didn't really like how the "plot" (term used very loosely) ended here. Now I'm kinda stuck on what to do next with the plot in the third part-that is, IF I do get around to doing it, but as of the moment my attention's on Sonic vs. Shadow Part 2. I'm thinking about remaking both parts of the aforementioned (I've been using that word quite a lot recently
) Sonic and Shadow vs. Mecha Sonic sprite animation/battle.
