Adding simple animations for (Multi Layered) Sprites to be used in Renpy to make your project look… alive…… The Lazy way… again…

July 12, 2011

OK… Using suggestions by Ren doing multi-layered using Photoshop puppet pin tool since Motion Portrait system is nowhere available for more mortals like me… I redid the whole thing and I was (somewhat)  able to (somehow) imitate the effect I was after… and that is do a Motion Portrait like micro movements to make a static image more lifelike simulating breathing… Now there were several limitations in this method mainly I cannot tilt sideways or diagonally sideways more than 5 degrees since there really is no material to be shown beyond that (remember, this is not true 3D)

(You were right DaFool… too bad Motion Portrait doesn’t seem to be available anywhere other than being on user end products for… “BARF!” Apple… don’t get me wrong… I was coerced on owning an IPhone… only to be disappointed by it… I’m just waiting for the 2 year subscription contract to expire)

Anyway, where was I?…. Ah!… I’m planning on using this and apply it to individual sprites and animate them in Renpy for my upcoming OELVN projects (Aka English Visual Novels) Now to solve the problem of finding a decent frame-rate that can play on all systems high and low spec. Right now, I’m aiming at 12FPS….

OK I go for now…

Adding simple animations for Single Sprites to be used in Renpy to make your project look… alive…… The Lazy way…

July 10, 2011

Ah… it’s been awhile… I’ve been really REALLY busy lately but what the heck… on with the subject…

What you see here is a mock up but will closely resemble the final output… sort of…

So what am I up to this time again?…. Well,  I was looking for cheap, fast, efficient ways to enhance my project graphically and one of the things I’m looking at lately is adding minute animations to each sprite to give the impression of being alive… So what are my options… Read the rest of this entry ?

Wind Turbine-Chan?…

May 30, 2011

It all started here… in that thread in /a/

This is TURBINE-CHAN… initially a byproduct of another boring Sunday afternoon…

As you can see in the link… it was originally intended as a Saten thread but knowing 4chan’s /a/… the thread was derailed and shifted to, well…. the wind turbine in Saten’s background. Read the rest of this entry ?

PIXIV in English!?… Oh yeah! Here comes UNCLE MUGEN!!!

May 1, 2011

My first ever attempt at Pixiv… Here’s Renpy’s Mascot Eileen enjoying a sunny day in the park while holding what seems to be a China Made smartphone clone and a stylus on the other hand.

Time to take advantage of this new potential tool to advertise myself! err… spread the love and joy that is Uncle Mugen…
