13-years-old.jpg
35 KB, 393x488
Good afternoon /g/

My son is 13 years old and smart for his age. But he can be a big short sighted and rushed into things.

He wants to "make a game or animation". Yesterday he downloaded a trial of Adobe Flash, but I discouraged him from learning that since it's a program that's on it's way out.

I suggested maybe he should learn HTML and then HTML5, but he feels like that would take too long. He really just wants to jump straight in and see some results.

He has:

- Made a minecraft server on his own for him and his friends to play
- Completed all the Codecademy courses on Javascript and enjoyed it.

But this week he wants to animate something. What program do you recommend?
>>
Flash, nigga.
>>
Is that an actual picture of your son?

What kind of father are you?

So I see you disagree?
>>
>>43150768
If that's your son, then boy, does he look like a fag. Also tell your son that he is wasting his time and he should rather learn something useful, like C/C++.
>>

is your son DTF?

Yes.

He wants to animate. He is young. Flash will teach him all skills necessary to progress onto a platform that is not dying when he is ready.

Let him eat cake
>>
>Completed all the Codecademy courses on Javascript and enjoyed it.

Your son is such a genius!

I'm pretty sure my dog could complete those courses.
>>
>>43150768
He should learn Haxe: http://haxe.org
It's basically a replacement for making games in Flash.
>>
>>43150768
Tell him he should give up and stop thinking he will ever be in the industry he wants to be in. No, he won't animate or make video games, the closest he will get is being a code monkey intern working for free until he demands to get an actual job where he will then get laid off and replaced by some Indian working for $0.52/hour.

I had to give you some indication that he wasn't a flying idiot. You have a smart dog.

>>43150878
Poor Declan, he'll never get to make that game.

>>43150768

Let him learn what he wants to.

Once you start putting limits on learning and saying "you must learn this instead" you suck the fun out of it and become the asshole.

Don't be an asshole.

Yeah let him learn flash. I remember I got into messing with DAWs by messing with my dad's Mac (he's a huge macfag) and screwing with Garageband for hours.
It was shit, but a good stepping stone for Pro Tools and Logic which I later picked up.
>>
>>43150889
Well my foot bacteria did those courses in under 2 minutes.
>>
>>43150901
That's a good point, however, after the 30 day trial is over I have to find him a legit copy of Flash or the fun ends anyway. I'd rather pay several hundred dollars for a program that isn't gasping for breath

declan crouch?
Boy he's a cutie. Too bad he's not your son.

Anyway, regarding the topic at hand - a minecraft server and codeacademy are really just handholding him, tell him that if he wants to make something decent he should take time and actually get into it. If you find a nice way that takes a while to learn, convince him to do it anyway instead of just giving up.
>>
Man poor OP, he just wanted suggestions for his kid.
Shouldn't have posted some random 13 year old kid with Aspergers getting murdered or not qualifying your statement initially with "since he's not completely retarded of a shitty faggot son".
>>
>>43151107
If he's a realist, he's got a false sense of reality. In this day and age there are people 60+ years old going back to college and graduating. It took them 60 fucking years to graduate college, while somewhere out there there's a 15 year old that graduated from Brown. Does that make it any less of an accomplishment for that old man? No.

There are many many people in the REAL world that don't know code, nevermind the fact that they're well beyond the age of 13. Does that make them less intelligent than you because you learned to code when you were 10 and a half?

please answer my question, I'm being serious.

I'm an animator at the studio that does Adventure Time. We're digital, but the animators who have "grown up" on digital are extremely shitty and their animations look all rigid, because they're used to just, for example, selecting an arm and rotating it, instead of actually redrawing the arm for each frame, which encourages adding nuance to the motion since you're redrawing it anyway.

OP if you're still around I thought I'd offer some insight.

HTML5 engines are actually very easy to use. I've never used flash, but I've used several engines and HTML5 is by far the simplest, and I don't think it'll be dead any time soon.

Look up Panda.js. It's in javascript, so it should be relatively familiar (it's also free).
