Title: Animation Lab basics.
Post by: DTTurbocad on June 26, 2009, 04:04:34 PM
I had to create this movie for a publisher so I decided to post it as well.

Let me know if any of you find this helpful.

Some comments:

1. I suggest some rehearsal.
2. Too much time wasted on drawing...this is about AniLab.
3. Why so many frames? 360/3.6 = 100. Why did you do 101 Frames?
4. The disk has five holes. Twenty frames would have been sufficient and saved the client 80% of painful rendering time.
5. The sound is much, much too low.

I didn't get any video - only audio, with MS background effects. I'm running Vista64, with IE8/32 bit.

It didn't work for me either in Vista64, but it worked OK in XP Pro; I did need to crank up the volume.

Title: What codec have-you used
Post by: Stephane F. on June 29, 2009, 08:30:36 PM
I seem unable as some people here to see that video.
Windows Media Player warns me that it did not find the necessary codec, so I get to listen to voice only.

Also thank for your comments feedback. As I stated the video was actually something I created for a publisher who also had Animation Lab questions but also had some TurboCAD questions mixed into his email as well.   Time permitting I'll try to have more time to rehearse in future. Time being my most precious resource it seems that something is better than nothing.  Hopefully users will find them a much better way of communicating that the written word.   The sound is quiet because often times I'm at my desk and am trying to keep it quiet since others are in close proximity.  Plus,  I'm using my own copy of Camtasia which i know best and can produce movies rapidly with.   Since these aren't something we're planning to sell I hope a little rawness is acceptable.

As for the frames = 100 if you watch them they do skip from about 6 to 95 or so....editing is time save not only for me but you all too :)

You completely missed both points.
