Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been working on making a very short lead-in animation for videos I'll be posting of my Minecraft server, and I'm having some trouble. The server's called Crafti.ca, and this is the logo I've been using for it:
I wanted to put a short intro together that involved this logo, so I came up with the idea of showing it being assembled and completed by piston blocks:
Linked for the unfamiliar.
This is the rough frame-by-frame I drew out for what I had in mind:
I've abstracted this a bit for my own sanity, but it gets the idea across pretty well, I hope.
I think it's a relatively simple job if only because the most complicated things that are moving are just the pistons, back and forth. However, there is kind of a lot of them.
It's asking a lot, but I figured it was worth a shot: is there anyone out there that'd be willing to tackle this for me? I know literally nothing about 3d animation.
