Hi Pennaz91

You've been kind enough to post several very positive comments for some of my Youtube uploads - so can I add something here for you to think about?

You have a very distinctive and effective animation style and are clearly using Artoonix very successfully. Your music toon is an excellent example. My style tends to be based more on clipart whereas yours seems to be traditionally drawn.

Therefore - can I suggest that anyone and everyone who uses Artoonix could learn an enormous amount from you if you were able to submit a few walkthroughs or tutorials in the 'tips' part of the forum. (be aware that there is definitely some sort of cut-off limit for posts. I've often had to modify' split or trim messages so that they didn't have their endings cropped off).

I suggest you look at your own style with an objective eye and split it down into a few categories such as -
\"How I draw a character\"
\"How I animate my characters\"
\"How I synchronise my movies to the soundtrack\"
\"How I design or decide upon mouth shapes for lip-sync\"
.... etc. etc. etc.

A lot of Artoonix users seem to stick with just drawing stick-figures (no pun intended), but your work proves just how good Artoonix is for developing a wider range of styles and skills. There's nothing wrong with stick figures but Artoonix isn't 'Pivot' - it's a comprehensive tool for all styles of animation. You could easily help others to develop the interest and confidence to see stick-figures as just the starting point for much more interesting and satisfying creations.

Excellent work - keep 'em coming.

Riccardo .... I assume you mean 'Metroid Animation: Samus VS Kraid -DX VERSION' ... ?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI_4VE-chV8

It will always help other forum users if you provide the URL.

And yes - once again you really show what can be done with Artoonix.

Instead of simply relying on messages and links in this forum, maybe Youri or Andrei could think about pointing visitors to the Artoonix website towards viewing your work on Youtube. Or maybe they could allow you to upload one of your animations so that even if it exceeds 4mb (which I'm sure they all do), it could be played from within the Artoonix homepage.

The main 'Featured' gallery does show a fair range of work and types of animation, but all visitors see at the moment in the second gallery are repetitive scribbles, tests and references to hastily-made videos elsewhere that can never be found.

Your work REALLY demonstrates what Artoonix users can aspire to when they're willing to spend some time, thought and imagination on a project.

Well done.

quite right - brilliant work! it is, btw, much appreciated by artoonix developers - Riccardo's got free registration :)

we will have to change the format of the gallery submissions on this website, as it seems that too much democracy cannot be handled by some users, and the flood of rubbish we are getting is increasing.
as for the gallery submissions above 4MB - like I said many times, it does not matter how large the animation on your PC is - the animations on youtube are converted to ~4MB file size as well (if you do not believe me - download the flv file and have a look), the conversion/compression is done there for you on their server. If so, then it can be done before submission to the gallery here - main parameters are frame size, fps, bit rate (also for audio).
hope this helps,
youri

It's hard to know what factors influence what outcomes - but going back through what I call 'the 2nd gallery' (the upload one), there was a time when there were a good variety of uploads from many different users. It's impossible to know if visitors to your website are now looking at that gallery and seeing just loads of similar (or even repeated) 'shorts' and thinking that's all Artoonix can be used for. Some uploads look like the work of someone who is trying the program for the first time which would be fine if they were - but not after months of uploads from the same user!

On the other hand, I'd have assumed that visitors to the website would start with the 'Featured' gallery which is MUCH better because you've taken care to select a good variety of examples. (Thanks for including some of mine amongst those).

Maybe the 2nd gallery should not be generally accessible to unregistered website browsers but be seen more as some sort of 'filter' from which you extract good examples .... but then, where would the genuine beginners show their work before they developed their skills? Nobody will want to stifle genuine experimentation.
Or maybe there should be a delay between uploading and you deciding that an animation is suitable for displaying in the 2nd gallery? I DON'T ENVY YOU HAVING TO FIND A WAY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

The 2nd gallery is dominated by uploads from one user who persists in uploading the scrappiest of work work on a daily basis as if that is the sole motivation.

Maybe you could also limit the number of characters for the upload notes? In the past I have sometimes found it useful to be able to write long and hopefully useful descriptions, but nowadays, some of the notes seem to ramble on for ever and add nothing to what has been uploaded. Some also try to encourage (or even provide the means) for 1:1 contacts which is not a good idea for a website and program which is primarily designed for access by young users.

as for the gallery submissions above 4MB

You may have misinterpretted my thought, Youri. I wasn't suggesting that an ACTUAL upload was available to view on the website, but that maybe on the homepage, you suggested a link to one of Pennaz91's uploads into Youtube as a way for website visitors to see his work as a demonstration of what Artoonix can do. Visitors might well not browse the forum or see his links there.

Or how about a series of screenshots from work by users who have made good and varied use of Artoonix - from the simplest to the more advanced?

Or what about selecting a few additional examples to display in the way that you show Justin's 'Water example no.2'?
Chris's candle and rain exeriments would be good for consideration.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you will know, my own use of Artoonix has fallen away for the moment as I develop other work, but if I was now in the position of wondering whether your program would suit my needs, the 2nd gallery would probably put me off. I'd probably assume it was only useful for the scribbliest of animations.
