# you say shitty today
but in a years time everyone will be going "FUUUUUUUCK"

edit: I cheat/fail at animation because I just draw one thing and then cut it into bits, or draw bits and then erm.. soemthing.

drawing each frame is way way more badass and the way to be doing it though.

# To be fair, that's how most people do it... I think.
I only ever draw it frame-by-frame if I absolutely have to.

# depends on the tools don't it
we should bug happytoats for FREE ANIMATION education techniques for FREE.

I got that DAZ3d thing and some stuff, it seems awesome results are possible but I haven't even tried it yet

I'll probably give up and cry and draw a throbbing cdc on photosoup

# Yeah~ I used to use Flash for all my animated stuff. I shall have to get back into it.
PS is alright for animation, I guess, but it irritates me that you can't change the speed of GIFs... unless you can, and I just don't know how to.

# you can change the delay on a frame by frame basis
but really if you are using flash "speed" is down to the animation itself

if that makes sense :D

# Yeah. When I preview it, it's really fast, but as soon as I've saved it and brought it over here, it's much slower.
I imagine a more optimized or smaller GIF would be faster. I'll have to have a play around with it later.

# 0.02 seconds per frame is as fast as you can go. And it's eyemelting

Due to size pressure I didn't make this look the way I wanted.

# ah well, there is a "bug" or artefact of gif that causes a bit confuserisation
a gif with a frame delay of 0 seconds will play slower than a gif with a frame delay of 0.3 or 0.4 seconds in firefox and chrome

# Yeah, 0.0 delay sets it to default in firefox.

# on one of my phones a delay of 0 runs at full speed though
so it's not a consistent thing that can be relied upon it seems

# There's a little seconds-per-frame box somewhere on the bottom right when you save a .gif in PS
with a default of 0.2. I set all my dance gifs to 0.25 so if I post a load they will be in synch.

This was damn fun to make... even though I lost an entire afternoon because of it.
