Videos

It’s time now for another edition of ‘Make My Videos Popular,’ the only blog which promotes depwl9992 and all of his (my) lego animations. As of now, I’ve uploaded around four new videos, all less than 30 seconds in length. They are SlaveDriver, Spaceman, Riding the Horse and JohnWayneMount. I’m going to go there in a sec and open it up to anonymous comments and things (they’ll all still be censored, but I’m looking for feedback from those who don’t have their own channels). So check them out and see if you like ’em! Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/Depwl9992

update on Youtube Uploads

    So I am currently uploading all the animation videos that haven’t been uploaded to my channel. They include the following:
  • John Wayne Horse Mount
  • Horse and Rider

I have more, but they are bigger than average, so I won’t post them now. Well, maybe I will if I think hard enough. They’re not really THAT big; just 2MB each. I can do it. The last one (Horse and Rider) was 600K…

The other two that I can upload now are Walk in-Roll out, Slave Driver and Spaceman. I’m still not 100% sure on the Basketball Stars Original.

Yes, I will do it. Right now, even!

Heading down to Mississippi in a day (actually, more like 18 hours) to visit friends. Everyone thinks we’re crazy, going at a time like this, when it’s all hot and stuff, but we felt we needed to get it in before school started. Actually, it’s so close to that deadline that they were planning to start school right in the middle of our trip, before we had planned it of course. Well, they’ve probably rethought, so we’ll have a great time seeing them anyway.

On another note, ever heard of Pivot Stickfigure Animator? Me neither, until last week when I saw a couple Youtube videos showing stickmen running around. Apparently, it’s a program entirely dedicated to animating stick-men!! Pretty neat-o. I sure like it. It’s a bit tough to get good at though. I’ve gotten a couple decent videos out of it, as they show silouettes of the previous frame. Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.geocities.com/peter_bone_uk/pivot.html. Personally, I’d go for the 1.3 Beta version, as samples you find on the web are not always compatible with the regular one. However, the beta has a stupid warning every time you open the program which is a text file warning you of how this program might not work because it’s a beta. Well, I think that right there is a beta bug that can use some fixing. Put a “Don’t show this again” checkbox or something.
