    Need some more in depth criticism from Animation Team? Look no further.
    VODs will consist of us talking over the video with our critiques as well as reanimated
    footage. Wanna try it?

    We'll need
    Video:
    Fla file:
    Spritesheets:


    Some Guidelines:
    • Another thing, don't send us work in progresses. We'll only review finished, published animations.
    • Give us an animation with some depth to it as well. Don't send us something that's like, 1-5 seconds long.
    • We can be flexible with what we accept but we would really like you guys to send us something around 30 seconds or more so we can really dig into your animation and so you can show us what you can do.
    • We will only accept VOD's that can make at least a 3 minute review.

    We only take animations that are made solely by you. Collaborative efforts or things such as 'fla shares' will be rejected.

    Anyway, the thread's open. Let me or any AT member know if you have any questions.

    Edit (8/5/19):
    We've edited the format so all the team members tackle the video together rather than individual ones so you will get the whole package. Typically we would split up the work with the voice recording being done by @Neil

    This is a really cool and clever idea, I'd definitely be up to ask for this someday. However, there's something and I don't know if it'd be a problem. Since I'm not english I almost never join VCs because when I join those I'm stressed and I eat my words, in overall I just don't feel it. Still, I can hear and understand English correctly. So here's my question: is it necessary too speak during the VODs, and in the worst case, is it possible to ask for questions in the text chat?

    Even if it's 2 months old, if you can do something to improve this I'll gladly watch how.

    Animation:
    Animation FLA: http://www.mediafire.com/file/770of9rs9u8fb4p/Nemesis+Collab+-+Sonic+V.S+Metal+Sonic.fla
    Specific AT Member: anyone, though someone with a good quality mike would be better for me.
    Time to have a VOD: exept this sunday, I'm available every day in the next 2 weeks. The best would be in my evening (from 8pm to 1-2am, my timezone is UTC +2).
    I'll only type but I'm good with you talking, I'm also okay if you stream it.

    First off, @jose117 VOD review is finished! Sorry for the hold up once again! My PC broke down for a period of time and there's been college stuff that I won't get into - in any case here you go!


    I'd like to extend a formal apology for the delay - the timing was really bad so on behalf of myself and Warren, we hope you accept. @Elemental Animations Neil will send yours shortly after mine.

    Now as with Miles' one, we learned from mistakes there and made a format change and the same can be said for this situation. The time-consuming effort it takes and the length to produce this style was too much and superfluous. After discussing, we've decided to undergo another format change so we can quickly whip up a video in less than a week. Rather than us revamping your animations entirely, we're going to go over the video itself and edit in clips of other animations and minor edits for specific bits in your animation. Gone are the full-on revamp and here are the video-based criticism. This is why it's taking so long for @Elemental Animations as we had @Pizzaman432 change the format midway. It should be up in a couple of weeks. Apologies for the delay, we are still learning how to use this system ourselves and we will try our best to make changes where we can to improve it.

    Check the availability on the thread to request an animator for a VOD review and now it will not take long at all (1-2 weeks). You also will no longer need to provide an fla, just the video link is enough - however, an fla will help the reviewer a lot more.

    I noticed it was taking long, but don't worry, it's fine. I know y'all have a life and things to do that takes priority on this, I've been myself really busy to a point I almost forgot about my VoD. So, it's all fine for me. If you need to, take your time.

    @Elemental Animations Hiya.

    This is really my first time doing something like this, so if my audio sucks, sorry. Like I said at the end of the video if you have anymore questions just ask me.

    Wow, that's what I call a Cnc. There is one point where I'd like to go back. You mentionned shots I have copied, and I'll be completely honest, All of this wasn't voluntary. I really hate to copy shots and I never wanted to do this in first place, I just hope it won't happen again.
    Thanks a lot for spending time on this, I never really had an opinion on what was good or what wasn't on this one, only a few echoes. Even if some points kinda became outdated (like for example I started stacking sounds after this one, as I knew it was really off), many things you said or showed definitely helped me.
