Imported and quickly colored o damn’s** cat walkcycle.
The first cycle is rendered out with a reframing from 25 Frames Per Second to 135 FPS. I put the same walk cycle on 2s and it runs at about the correct pace.
**I don’t think I”llnever understand what mother’s are thinking of when they name their kids these days.

This is an old document but well worth dusting off…
The Perfect Pan: An Animation Scene-Planning Primer by David Steinberg
Unless I am mistaken, this document was created for Sullivan Bluth Studios in 1987.
Highly recommend Tiddlywiki be used in some capacity by everyone.
What is Tiddlywiki?
It’s a self contained document that is also an application.
Because this blog is titled ‘new art of animation’ there is a technological aspect to all of this and Tiddlywiki fits that bill nicely. A few things I hope exploit in the future include Base 64 imagery and QR codes… oh yeah. 😉
And this post is where I hope to keep a Tiddlywiki named ‘Storyboard.html’ for linking purposes. That way the link doesn’t get broken.
So, here’s a very non linear multistoryboarding example:

Seth Synder’s Character Max. Or at least one version of him.
A shot from a dream sequence not in the script. Just something from a random doodle in a tiny sketchbook.
I thought I’d run through a few of those sketchbook doodles and see if I could still draw the characters.
If gif animation had audio… this stuff would be dangerous.
