Title: IMSI Puzzle Animation
Post by: Don Cheke on April 16, 2010, 09:32:25 PM
I created six Animation Lab segments (keeping image frames). Frames were assembled in Camtasia. Final fade black transition before final image was added in Camtasia. Produced as mp4 video from Camtasia.

Great work, Don. It's quite satisfying when it all comes together, isn't it?

Thanks Julian. Yes it is pretty satisfying.

Sure is a time consuming process.

Nice job Don,

sorry to be so long to add comments.

Yes, this sort of work can be longwinded and frustrating, but ultimately rewarding.

I have lost count of the number of times I have sworn never to animate another project again!

However, most things can be achieved with practice and patience.

The two attached simple examples show how at least one effect might be created.

Just load up the appropriate scenarios (sc files), or view in text editor to study two possible routes, to achieve similar results.

You will need to change the txt extension to sc.  This forum does not allow uploading of sc files!

Movies, providing they are not too large, can also be edited within Montage Center and saved in whatever encoding formats you might have available on your particular machine.

Ultimately, it is a balance between cost and convenience. Purchasing another software package is not always the most cost effective solution.

Camtasia is a capable programme, for sure, but looks a little expensive when the same result might be possible with TC and AnimationLab.

Keep up the good work Don, and I hope this helps.

Regards Tim
