Level 3 Animator
Ranked as Civilian
Hey all, finally started on the animation XD
Anywho, I thought I'd post a sneak peek on what gear I use when doing animation. Right now I'm rocking a very affordable lightbox (I use it when doing storyboard work). The storyboard here is quite old, and I've revised this 1 out of 6 sheets twice, so no spoilers lol. For the animation, I use a Bamboo Capture tablet, and of course Adobe Flash for the animation.
Hardware wise, I recently made the switch over from Mac to a custom built PC several months ago in order to have more processing power when running multiple Adobe programs, although I still use my trustee Macbook Pro for when I'm traveling. Also, I have not forgotten about the people who are interested in doing more voice work.
Other than that, life is pretty alright. I'm excited about a program I maybe involved in, that effectively acts like a boot camp for people who want to be programmers. Supposedly people who go through the program will be pre-matched with a high-end company before starting the boot camp...so I've been networking a lot, and all that adult-y fun stuff. If I do accept to go through the program, I might have to leave my comfy job (that's actually paying well)...but, sometimes you gotta take risks in life.
If I go through with it, one thing that I might talk to other people about, with other programmers on this site, is creating an open source 2D animation program. Flash/ ToonBoom/ TVPaint alone can be expensive, or even Adobe Cloud, and the other open-source programs like Synfig aren't that well known. Anyhow, that's my block of rambling texts. Stay Cool Newgrounders.
