 This is entry one of three for the liberate your hard drive challenge.  I reviewed all 51 challenges and chose to do the 3 that looked the most fun and challenging from before I joined Pixel Joint.  This piece was fun to do.  It took a little over 2 hours because animation is not one of my strengths' so it's a little cheesy, but hopefully looks good and fun and what not.

 Fair enough.  I'm not claiming to be a super great pixel artist either so a little criticism is alright.  Hopefully future pieces are less characteristic of stickmen.

I checked all the submissions to that specific challenge and its rules and that was the point. I dont mean to bash you but compared to what other people were able to do with the 2 colors, this seems like a stickman to me. Sorry

 Did you happen to notice this piece was for a specific challenge?

Dispite all the talk and tweaks, this imo is pretty basic and , well, ugly. Stickman feel.

 not exactly the idea here

I think, if wheels bounce, their upper parts should be visible, too.

Okay, I'm in firefox and mine looks the same and yours looks pretty good and bouncy so I will definitely update it!

Monitors refresh at or around 75 Hz, meaning 75 times per second.

0.01" frame delay means 100 frames per second: even with the best of systems and video cards, some frames will be missed at best!

Manupix- " I can go down to 0.01 (pretty useless since it's faster than monitor frequencies)" sorry but I dont understand this ^^U. Would you like to explain this, thanks ^^

Oh damn! Kill Chrome. A lot of beautiful animations are waiting to you. And your Joy Ride is beautiful at the Manupix help ;

Hum... You might find this link useful.

   < 0.03" which is Firefox safe.


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/1/2011 12:07

That's one more reason not to use Chrome then! Your experience of all the awesome anims on PJ must be terrible. ;_;

Still, you should edit the piece at 0.03 for all of us Fx users / voters. It does happily bounce around! ;)


user
NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/1/2011 11:37

 I use Photoshop CS4... I did find the 'other' option in the menu but your edit looks the same as mine so I'm guessing, based on the link you gave, that Chrome just doesn't display the frames faster than 0.1 :/


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/1/2011 10:52

I use ImageReady CS2, the features of which were absorbed by PS from CS3 onwards. I can go down to 0.01 (pretty useless since it's faster than monitor frequencies), and so you can, I think: do you have 'other' in the menu?

I don't know what Chrome sees, do you see my edit faster than yours or not?

Edit: there is also a 'preview' feature in IR which allows me to see what the anim looks like in (I guess) the available browsers (IE and Fx for me), which helps catching some issues which the 'optimized' window does not. This should exist in PS too.


user
NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/1/2011 08:54

 By the way, I'm using Chrome, so my image is only running at 0.1, I think...


user
NobleValerian (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/1/2011 08:52

 Wow, thanks!  I had no idea... So basically, giving the animation options in photoshop I should pretty much never expect my animation to run faster than 0.1 second delay :(  ... Looked so frickin good with no delay though, happy little guy bouncing around, you could have imagined him off road hitting rocks and potholes and tree stumps... bummer...

 This was a lot smoother and faster in photoshop, then I saved it as gif and now it's slower...
