Alright, so today the Bitey Castle FX course started and over the next 8 weeks(+possibly further if I decide to pay for further instruction) I'll be learning the ins and outs of effects from the one and only:Adam Phillips(creator of The Last of the Dashkin's). This first week was about electricity and I enjoy feed back.http://www.truploader.com/view/107316
Decided to animate some a bit different than the assignment and put a little looping animation....best one I've in done in flash tbqh.http://www.truploader.com/view/511060
This exercise is of just a basic 2 second animation of an electricity strike at 30 fps as specified for the assignment. I tested the perimeter with width the bolts, on the left is a skinnier and the right a thicker. I personally like the thicker since I think it holds a better power rather than the wide one, despite in reality the bigger bolt would be more powerfull, but also less likely to happen in real life, so I liked the small better.http://www.truploader.com/view/442192&lb=y
This was another test on a solid object(a circle) I kept with the small bolt size and had one strike without traveling through the object and one that did.http://www.truploader.com/view/425498
This one was the advanced assignment as for the other two were a beginning assignment. Object was to have one source(one spot)strike three objects. Thus I created a three objects:A set of barrels,a rod and a house. In this specific exercise I simply attempted to do a two and a three prong strike.
All together I think I should added more space between each strike...even though it is only 2 seconds.
