    want to post your tests on a thread but you don't want to get complaints about it? do it here then.

    seeing as the threads for these usually amount to a single constructive post with a bunch of useless posts that simply mirror that first post, we figured we should just make a single thread for everyone to post their tests since they're short and don't really deserve an entire thread for them.

    totally effortless jokevids/spam will be deleted, though.

    here's to the longest thread on maplemation

    edit: some people have been posting their first animations on the animation section, and while some are rather good for general viewing, a bunch of others are just "hi i made this in a few hours to just figure out the program".
    as far as i'm aware, those also count as tests, and thus go here.

    if your animation happens to be just some quick thing in order to get used to some aspect of flash/fireworks/whatever else, it goes here. if it's longer and has some actual purpose to it other than practice/testing/etc., then you may post it on its own thread.

    thanks.

    So this is sorta like the Animation Section's version of the Sprite Section's "POST YOUR CHARACTERS HERE" thread eh?
    Can't wait to see how the threads compare in terms of effectiveness.

    I got really confused when the song started. I had to rewatch it a couple of times to realize that the wolf spider shat out its hearts. The part that I got super confused on was the wolf spider behind your character. Like, how did it get hit?

    This thread isn't that bad of an idea. Thanks, Peace. Also, Glay, there's no such thing as too much hitstun. It helps make the animation look prettier.

    Mixed feelings about the camera, The particle effect is just..weird. You can find snow effects like this with simple google searches. Just add a screen or add effect. Font comes in too slow. Remember, it is an intro. Try adding a sound effect when the font comes in aswell.

    more like a "TRASH"bute.
    honestly, this section has no reason to exist.
    i can understand the TEST part of it, but the unfinished animations are just.... uh.
    i don't like unfinished things!
    i don't like unfinished animations!
    unfinished sandwiches!
    unfinished sente-

    yeah i don't like them either but you'll have to live with it, people are #lazy

    like i said, this is better than them flooding the whole place. they're all here and you can just avoid this single thread from on now.
    simple.

    It's useful to get a bit of quick Cnc in one place on some unfinished stuff or test stuff in one go than dedicate an entire thread to something that isn't finished or meant to be a real animation. In a way it's helping keep that kinda stuff OUT of the animation section.
