    Default Simple Animation Part 4

    Latest installment in the simple animation series. This time I try to explain how to cut out the characters seeing that was skipped over in part one.

    I am finding that doing these little films has taught me all sorts of new tricks in using Premier Elements 7. This time I think the voice-over in the tutorial section has a better sound quality. I didn't record it as a narrative in the PC room as there was too much noise in there as my wife was working on her PC as well. I did some experiments though and found that the sound quality with the zoom is exactly the same as if the recording were made in the bedroom.

    Oh well see what you think.

    I see you've been busy, It's interesting how you have got more creative as you have gone along. You even got Mrs Shrimpy in this time. Looks good, Sound sorted, explanations clear and simple, entertaining, educational. You have ticked all the boxes for me.

    I think it's perfect.

    If I was Tim I would question the final fade out as the ship faded out before the kitty. BUT I'm not Tim so I won't mention it.

    Another excellent episode Shrimpy! Not sure I'd like to trust that parachute though!!
    And I was expecting Kitty Bond to jump into the water at the end!

    Content almost spot on, although my daughter did question the comment about a 'high contrast background' and was unsure that all youngsters would really understand what was meant, but that is a minor point. Maybe if you do another, (I hope so) you could include an "Ask and Adult if there is anything you don't understand" statement near the end.
    Smashing series for which you should be proud of yourself.

    Thanks for the feedback gents.

    Your right Ian, as the words 'high contrast' came out the thought 'will they understand that' crept in

    They are fun to make though. I like your new picture Ian

    I'm glad you enjoy making them, as the Boys do enjoy watching them and the older one (10yo) is making some progress, which is a minor triumph in itself as he has the problem seen in some of my videos! So take an extra pat on the back.

    As for the pic, I'm glad you like it, as you are in part responsible. The character is a simple one with just articulating arms and legs with no further joints. Tesco 3 each!

    If that's what he is using to animate then a very wise choice. I have another figure with multiple articulated joints, it complicates matters 100 fold and as its supposed to be simple animation I am going to stick with the kittys.

    Yes, but it saves having to have the cut at the neck for the turning head!
    (Yes, I spotted it!! )

    Quite apart from the tutorial aspect, I'm really loving the animated action films you're making. Presumably we'll be seeing James Kitty hooking up with Pussy Galore?

    Different theme all together for the next one.
