SYNC - A Musical Type Collab.

on 8/2/2013, 12:17 pm
Seems like it's a tradition for me to make a collab every summer, 70% chance this will fail but whatever.
kso this collab is all about syncing your animation to the music heard in the background, all you need to do,
is pick a Suitable song (rules for picking song are below) and animate and direct your animation accordingly to the song.
this collab is made for people which are very creative, so that means only making someone punch every drum beat isn't enough (maybe almost...)

Basic Rules:

Framerate - 30 fps (don't dare making it anything else)
Canvas size - 550 X 400
Action script - 2.0
Please save the file in Flash 8 format, it's not critical but will be helpful.
V-cams are allowed, and make sure you put your logos on them.
Animation time - 30 seconds until the ending time of your song.
Any character is allowed as long is it's not a recolor of anything.
Your part must have a fade in and out in black.
Put all your files in folders (again not critical but helpful).
Deadline - October 15th (two and a half months are deffently enough).


Other rules:

You are allowed to join as long as you're not a complete beginner, if you know your skills aren't decent please think carefully.
Your part might be tweaked a little by me, not the actual animation, i might just add some effects that will refine and make the animation look more appealing.
If you join, actually make your damn part Serious 
You must tell me who is the artist who made the song you are using.

Song rules:

1. Your song can be either instremuntal or with words.
2. please try not to pick songs that are too well known, like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kffacxfA7G4
the reason for that is the fact that youtube might annoy me if they recognise too many known songs in there, and i also want to use more new sounds and music instead of the same
thing people hear all the time.
3. i highly recommend picking your songs for NG or soundcloud, but any other source is fine.

People Who take part in this:

TheSpritas -

Exorz - Done

Maplemation -

Good luck to everyone! ULTIMATE DERP

1920 x 1080 could be a huge problem for those who have computers that probably cannot handle it.

you can just do a smaller HD resolution like 720 x 480 (or 848 x 480 for computers)

i always had the idea of doing a fight synced to one super fast dnb tune i have in here but i never got around to do it. i thought about doing it for this collab but i wanted to cover it all and i would have to look for sprites again and i just don't want to do that right now

either way good luck.
also i think you made a typo here
3. i highly recommend picking your songs for NG or soundcloud, but any other source is fine.
i think you mean "from"?

if I may make a suggestion, the reason in my collab that I had everyone name ALL their files is because just throwing your files into folders isn't enough for flash to realize that some files are separate from others.

Tal what i'm saying is that putting the files you used in your part in a folder is not enough for flash to differentiate that files from one animation are not the same as the files from a different one. When you copy and paste frames from one animation to another, even if the files were originally in the folder in the first animation, they will appear OUTSIDE of the folder when you paste said frames.

You'll see what I mean once you start compiling. Flash will tell you "two files have the same name. Replace? Do not Replace?"

i know though it doesn't matter much anyway, this won't be compiled in flash, i'm only going to convert the files form swf to avi and combine them, that's why canvas size, the flash format and folders aren't so important, i only pointed them out incase i will need to do some flash work even..though i don't see why, i don't want a full swf of this collab, i don't plan putting it on NG or anything and even if so i can upload the movie file there too.

What you say makes sense tal but considering you want the avi in HD then chances are it will be about 1-2gb while ng has a 256mb limit

but like you said its not a big deal since you might not upload to ng anyways. though if you were to change your mind it could be problematic. just sayin

i'm not going to change your animation at all, i won't even touch the flash file..in most rare case if i feel like it's needed i'll add a small effect, that is all.
