    This collaboration is finally done,i would like to thank our animators for taking their time and working on their entries.
    [video=youtube;hzc7yRc-UyI]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzc7yRc-UyI[/video]
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The Maple's Castle Collab is inspired by the idea of The Mario's Castle Calamity made by Bigfoot3290.(thanks for the info Derek)
    [​IMG]

    Concept:

    Each Participant must make an animation of someone trying to destroy the castle,but then fails in the end.the point is that the way you fail must be fun and creative.(please do NOT rip ideas from the official collab.)
    NOTE that the point here isn't like other smashing collabs,ambushing the castle,no,just make an entertaining,funny and something that people don't expect part.

    Rules:

    •Must Have SFX (No Music)
    •Flash Or Fireworks (even Sony Vegas,just make your part neat)
    •Must Follow The Fla File Below. Click me! Zip
    •Do NOT Fade in or out (and please don't make a long pause in the ending)
    •Maple Characters Only. (other things like weapons are okay)
    •Canvas size is 640 x 360
    •FPS is 24.
    •Please refrain from text dialogues.
    •you can make up to 5 parts.
    •When done,please link me an .mp4 file of your work.
    •The "Destroyed Castle" sprite is for finisher only.
    •All watermarks must be on bottom left corner.
    •You do have the right to change the vcam placement in the first frame,just don't change the castle,string and launcher's placement.

    For GIF Animators,there is a link for a .zip version of the file,just make the outcome like this:
    [​IMG]

    Here's an exemple of how the animation would be like : Click me!

    I remember someone posting this and Derek completely bashing the dude for just taking this from a previous collaboration and applying it here.

    I like how this is planned out but like i said the doing this will just give us a bad name for taking other people's collaboration idea
    and applying it to ours...

    But oh well, good luck i guess..

    These "smash -------- collab Jr." doesn't have any significant difference of the original one either,but that never made anything worse,about the difference:
    "(please do NOT rip ideas from the official collab.)"
    "NOTE that the point here isn't like other smashing collabs,ambushing the castle,no,just make an entertaining,funny and something that people don't expect part."
    " •Maple Characters Only. (other things like weapons are okay) "
    " •Please refrain from text dialogues."
    "GIF"
    there are many FAMOUS collabs were just inspired by older collabs.

    i got inspired and based off the IDEA with other touches. not the collab itself.and i gave some other options to make it different.
    you know Maple Rushed that Derek made? it was based off the same idea from the collab of the stick figures community. it never gave us a bad name,actually it made us more popular.

    and that guy you're talking about had other reasons to get bashed.he didn't know the rules of making collabs.

    the idea here is not to copy other collaborations.but to build off a better collab of an idea. i never claimed the idea as my own as well.

    "Quade:I actually don't think it's unoriginal... Its just building off of the smash wall collab. There can be shit falling from the tree and monkeys and birds and stuff and crazy root attacks and razor leaf and insects. If this is as unoriginal as Stittz says then how is the MMV collab and the smash pumpkin collab original?"

    But It's True that original collabs are perfect,but that doesn't always makes collabs successful.Thanks though,i'll consider that in the future.

    So Vegas Pro entries are accepted? I might apply later if I think I have the time while editing my own projects, but I don't know if it will work out since this is mostly flash-integrated. Can I just render 1920 x 1080 since it is also a 16:9 ratio? I'm not sure how I would apply a 640x360 canvas in Vegas without ruining the resolution D:

    Let me know if that's okay with you! I'll see if I have time to apply and if I can, I will use a sample work I'm uploading next week for my own project. Thanks :D

    1-It is mostly flash-integrated,but if you can make a good,neat part with the program you're using i think that's cool.
    2-Hmm,well it depends,when i'll compile all parts in Sony vegas,would it screw up the quality? (i don't know if it does,you're the one who uses SV),in any case,you may apply,join,work on your part,and i'll see if it's in or not,just keep the poses at the same size..(you know what i'm talking about. ;) )

    Phew I think I can get involved now! Here it goes :D

    Name: Calvin C (CCshinobi)
    Example of Work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZjk8UOJ28E
    Skype: DirectorCCshinobi (Does not always work properly due to random "This program is not responding" crashes. It would be best if we just stick to PMs D:)

    As a Sony Vegas animator, I use a custom 1920 x 1080 resolution .mp4 template for rendering in 1080p. If you're compiling it all in Vegas, it shouldn't be a problem. Let me know if there's any issues! :)
