You fags wanna learn how to make shitty animations?
We'll be using https://www.gimp.org/
a freeware image manipulator.
Microsoft is a zionist scheme.
Anyway, layers are going to act as your basic frames, if there isn't a layers tab in your tool box it can be brought up as a dockable dialog under "windows"
This is gonna be a simple walking animation, draw your "non mobile" shit- torsos, heads, etc. now, on a separate layer
Here's some sad fag in a trenchcoat.
I have photoshop and gimp but have stopped using them like 6 years ago desu. I never learned how to make an animation all I know is just make a shit ton of layers with slight movements? right?
As a person walks the torso bounces,
copy your first layer, select your sprite, float it, then move it upwards slightly.
kill yourself my man
Follow this step to make a bouncing motion, you can review your work with filters>animation>playback it should look like this so far.
I will make you proud OP
but the time must be right first.
Return to each layer, draw limbs corresponding to each position.
It'll look better if you keep them the same general length, which means the lower your torso is, the more "bent" they should be.
Fiddle with layer opacity so you can look back at previous layers.
I didn't like my sixth animation layer and threw it out- I completed a "loopable" amount of frames before I needed it.
at this point you can just copy your background layers, merge each stickman down on top of it with Layer>merge down, and then save it as a .gif and you'll have a little dude walking around.
but if you're a fancy high-falooting fellow, you can make a scrollable background.
make sure whatever line and object is leftmost matches with the rightmost line/object, as this strip is meant to be a perfect loop.
I'm going to make a building here.
jesus fucking christ, just use a flash program
Made this in macromedia flash in less than 2 minutes, no stupid bullshit
This is how easy it is, you can have layers, tweens, onion skinning, set frame rate, images are easily put into vector form so they're easy, easy to group things, rotate from a hinge/ point
and i downloaded this program for free
I'm a lazy faggot, so I'm just going to exploit patterns and selectively erase to make a city skyline.
That's not the point, I don't want to ruin your fun but the method you're using is so convoluted that it's painful to think you don't just do it the easy way
I also don't like the drawing/editing tools in flash.
I mean when it's just a stick figure it doesn't matter, obviously.
I'm referring even more to shit like this.
I don't think this would be possible to make in flash.
You are pretty much teaching people how to bash in a screw with a hammer, rather than just using a screwdriver. You might be good at using the wrong tool for a certain task, but you shouldn't inflict it on others.
Try either of these instead if you want to animate shit:
That's not even very good desu.
In any case After Effects is better for video and gif creation.
I tried to figure this out once, this is an animation I made using giftools, I made each frame in mspaint then pasted it into a .gif, what do you think
well shit, it still doesn't work and I'm such an autistic useless sperglord I demoralized OP with my lame and failed attempt to create an animated .gif
it can matter, made this in not too long
thx familia, ignore the negativity on /r9k/, this step by step instruction has inspired me to give it a go
Watch oneyNG's flash tutorials, I think spazkid also made some
This one I made utilizes symbols and tweening. The only individually drawn keyframes are the coat and legs, everything else is basically stationary except I told it to slide to specific positions over time. Even the head bobbing/ coat bobbing is tweens within tweens.
I don't know what you mean by white color, it's all transparent besides the head shape, with a white backdrop
fuck off, there's never a competition with this sort of shit
Usually I'd animate a picture of me having hung myself from a rafter, the rafter breaking due to my being a fat fuck, my falling body breaking through my floor, my basement, hell, and then shooting out through china, but I think I'm gonna take a break for a while.
It was kind of fun making this regardless of how lazy it may be.
Yeah, I get that a lot lately.
Thanks for the tutorial anon. Don't quit on us yet. You got some real skill.
>You got some real skill
I've got AIDS.
>not wanting to kill a future roastie
Who said I wouldn't kill her, just not yet atleast, have to get your final fuck out of her
>not wanting to bro it up with Chad
>not wanting to be a huge faggot
>not confused into thinking chad wants anything to do with you
Chad ends up as a PTSD case, fucks a fat goth, suffers a flashback, beats up the landwhale, gets sent to jail, then finds out he has AIDs.
You're better off posting this shit on /gd/. They got some ballin infographics.
I believe you.
Thanks for being the grandfather to so much OC, brother.
