My new reload! Check it out!Tried some more techniques, what do you guys think?https://youtu.be/Yaeq4iP641o
>>599150an AK-47 weighs 10 pounds it looks weird to see someone making it snap up like a noodle like that
>>599169btw I'm talking about the flip up after the mag removal around 1-2s
>>599170Other than that, how is it, AAA Quality?
>>599172time to remove the magazine takes too long, it's like he pauses for a bit before removing itthe hand looks goofy, something about the fingers, can't put my finger on it but it looks badthe left arm is completely fucked
>>599173>>599172>>599150you should really be asking this question on /k/
>>599150Look, you don't need to open personal threads every time, it's not ok. Especially since your work is not that great yet to deserve it. At least update your previous threads with new work and stop opening a new one every time.That being said, it's nice that you seem to really care and keep trying to achieve the AAA quality, but IMO this is the worst one. It seems like you ignored every previous critique you got, and you keep making the same mistakes. The hand now breaks at least 4 times and the gun is, again, too lightweight. The ending of the animation is too stiff, too, it can't just lock in the position like that without overshooting a little bit first.
>>599150Fifty more reload animations completed and you'll actually be decent. Until then just keep plugging away and trying to get better every time.
>>599173I think the pause at the magazine i used to lenghten the reload, in a game diverse weapons need diverse stats
>>599150I think you're missing a lot of details if you're wanting to be more realistic about an ak platform.there's the weird pause when hes about to press the magazine release, secondly, it looks like there's no weight to it when the release is being pressed, those are typically some pretty stiff springs on those switches. when he's actually reloading, you have a relatively heavy rifle just being swung around like it weighs 2 pounds, simultaneously flagging everyone near him with his barrel.if you're trying to lengthen the reload animation, id suggest taking out that pause at the start of him releasing the magazine, and add in time when seating the magazine into the rifle, typically you'll use the notch on the mag to catch the magazine chamber, press and rotate it in. i'd lengthen the time from catching the magazine on the mag well, and slotting it inside.
>>599267so the meta is not to use that gun?
New animation guys, I think it's my best one yet, what do you think?https://youtu.be/-Yq8Q0gIbYo
>>603864I can't reply on youtube to you, but OP hereTo Randomguyfromtexas:I am being legitimate. Let me ask, why do you guys think I am shitposting? I am keeping it all in one thread, would I really spend my days making animations to shitpost? I want an honest critique. I just want people to see my work, and to give me feedback. I NEVER did it to shitpost.
>>603866This is like the third thread this week you've posted saying the same thing. I actually thought you were genuine but you are shitposting. It's funny though, I mean keep it up, but I can see it getting annoying.
>>603890Haha! You are so fucking wrong, bucko. This is an old thread! I updated this thread to fall in line with the opinion of keeping it contained, feel like a fucking idiot?I made only one thread this week. THIS thread is old. Dipshit. Infact, it's a month old.
>>603892>HA! SEMANTICS!Sure showed us.
>>603896Either way, you were wrong. I'm not shitposting. Don't know why i'd waste my time making a fucking animation so I can "troll". wouldn't I just do something that required less effort?
>>603864Looks good. What is your end goal, anon? You created a lot of these, have you already tried sending your portfolio to some studios? Have you tried posting these animations to Polycount forums, as well as 3D animation subreddits?And what is the reason you are only posting the reloads here? I'd like to see some other animation work by you. We don't know how good you are in other areas.
>>603906I just want to be good.I'm gonna create a portfolio once I get good enough.Then send it around, show it to some big dogs, and pray to god that I get a positive response.I only post here because I like the ability to post freely and not have to sign up for anything. Plus 4chan has a fast respond rate.I'm no good at character animation, but one thing at a time is how I approach things.
>>603897>>603892then let the old shitty posts die!! we have place were we all post our stuff. who the fuck are you to make thread about every shit you make. you just dont get what shitposting means... you are doying it now.
>>603916Just because you don't post your shit in your own thread doesn't mean I cant.
>>603907How long have you been doing these, though? Have you not said it's been years already? I think reload animations are not nearly as important as other animation areas (I mean, it depends on a game, in a shooter it surely plays a big part), and you'll have to be even better at other, usual things animator for games does, I guess. Walk/run cycles, face expressions, character movements, you know, whatever, I'm not an animator.I have a feeling you don't know how much you need to know as an animator, and if you're still practicing your weapon animations after x years, with that pace it will take like at least a decade more to get a job.That's why I'm saying - go and also post these on Polycount and Reddit and ask for honest feedback. This place barely has any animators after all, you are only lying to yourself this way.Seriously, what you are doing doesn't seem right to me. Nobody here wants to give their opinions since they would rather bitch about you being a shitposter, but as I said, I think you have been focusing too much on a small thing for FAR too long.I can see how increasingly fucked up you are getting every day by your replies, you really need to take a step back and rethink everything. You got stuck in a rut.
>>603919I'm getting fucked up? What does that mean?And I truly don't care enough to be in the industry, I am just saying that would be Ideal. Bottom line, It's a hobby and I enjoy it, and too bad, it's all I enjoy doing.
>>603921I mean I see how more and more offensive you are towards anyone criticizing your thread and works. And don't bullshit me now, I've been following you since the first thread, you clearly stated you've been doing these all day long that even your friends got sick of you showing them your reloads. You said the only thing you want to do is to become a gun animator for games.But - if this is really the "only hobby you are enjoying", just know that there are definitely plenty more, you just didn't try them out. You can't know what you love doing if you don't try it, ffs.
>>603923I'm not bullshitting. I do want to be an animator for the industry. Do I seem like I'm crying that you are telling me that I need more than just reload skills to get in? No. Because I don't care enough about getting in to it to be upset.I've done 2 reloads a day. For a month I stopped. I am not back at it at 1 every 2 days. My friends told me they are sick of seeing reloads.I just enjoy animating guns. Would like to make money off it, Like I said. But I am not putting my eggs in that basket.
>>603923Oh, forgot to say. I'm only offensive towards fucking idiots saying lies."You make a hundred threads a week." Shit like that pisses me off because they claim to be correct and judge me on that falsehood.
>>603917Yeah, nothing can stop you from shitposting, this is 4chan after all. but nothing will stop others from telling you that you are shitposting. >>603923no one is ignorring him, we all ccd his reloads at some point, how much can you talk about it tho? 10? 20?
>>603926If your gonna critique me, be accurate is all I ask.People who base their opinions in lies are pathetic.
>>603927>be accurateoh... orry dude, I should have counted one by one, how much time you shitposted here. can you tell me why we are not creating threads every time we create something? I'm really curious.
>>603930Well, first off I didn't create a new thread.And you better be sorry. Or else I'll stick my finger up your butt.
>>603864>I think it's my best oneIt is. Do 10 more like this.Maybe with a grey background, black is too heavy.Also render it in HD and keep putting nice textures/shaders on the models. Repeat the animation, maybe once in slowmo. Or put more than one variation of reloading in one animation. Slow and fast for example. Why do you only do reload animation, why no shooting? I would definitely also do some shooting animation.
>>603864Comfy. Now I want to play some fps, haven't in a while.
New reload, check it out. Even better?https://youtu.be/xunicoGNJ8A
>>604782I will never, ever, get, why the fuck anyone would ever want to animate reloads ))as animation goes, IDK, it is kinda bland, I'd exaggerate some movements etc.. ou are doying the most senceless(at least for me) thing in the world, spicing it up will be a good choice. oh and it looks you've upped production quality )) aaaaaaaaaaaand also contained yourself in one thread.
>>604782hip firing animation is pretty nice desu. looks like it would feel good if put in a game.the ADS one not so much, seems really stiff. you should practice those more.reload looks good, but you have some kinda weird small rotations in there before the mag insertion, while the mag is off screen. the gun wobbles around a little too randomly imo.slowed down those rotations actually look okay, but at normal speed they lose readability and just look like random jitters.
>604923By production quality, you mean my animations are great, just they could use better style?>>604925So my animations are good, just used some unneccesary stuff?So to both: My animation skill is really good, yes?
>>604923See >>604954Sorry, forgot to reference you correctly.
New animation, tell me what you think?https://youtu.be/UsiaKec0DVcMy best yet! I improved on the style like you guys said to.
>>604925>reload has weird small rotations that look like random jittersI completely disagree with you.It looks good. Guns move when you're prepping the next mag. They're heavy and designed to be held with 2 hands. Of course it's going to wiggle.>>604997Forgot to loop the animations a few times.As usual it's fine. Why exactly do you want to become a FPS gun animation guy?Like what's your backstory? Why do you never post other work?
>>604997How long does it usually take for a few gun animations like these? Feels satisfying.
>>605043I want to become an FPS animation guy because of it's what I enjoy doing, and there is positions for it, Chance Glasco for IW does Reload animations, Griggs for IW, does reload animations. Truly they do other minor animations as well, or help with mocap but since I'm wanting to do and learn a lot I would like if that could be a position for me.I never post any other work because this is all my work, I've spent so long trying to perfect this, and I will move on to other stuff eventually!>>605046Takes me about 6 hours in totalI split it up over the course of a day. Usually 3 hours in the afternoon, 3 hours at night.
>>605078>I want to become an FPS animation guy because of it's what I enjoy doing, and there is positions for itDoesn't really answer my question. How did you become interested in this?
>>605084I just saw other people on youtube doing it and I something clicked, I wanted to do it. Maybe it was my attempting to do it and being bad at it that made me become obsessed.
>>604954>>604961>production qualityyou actually put textures on model..
>>605103Ah, well you see, that could mean a lot of things.How's my animation?
>>599150I've told you a thousand fucking time my fucking dude, GO RELOAD A GUN and see how it feels and see how you move when you do it cause it still looks like shit.nobody pauses before taking the mag out.also the thumb just stops for a second.On an Ak the angle you hold the gun when you actually reload if you're reloading like that is a higher angle unless you can hold the gun horizontally with one hand (which is harder than it sounds and unpractical)the gun doesnt BOUNCE around after you take the mag out; it's not like your ripping off velcro, the mag just comes out.the angle putting the new mag in is WACK and too far foward it looks like hes doing it diagonally and lastly the charging handle animation is backwards. You pull back fast and then the spring pushes it fowards, you dont charge the gun slowly. ALSO again with angles no one fucking charges the gun verticaly you do that part while the gun is horizontal to your body cause its much easier to hold the gun horizontally with your left hand than your right.FUCKING TAKE my advice for once you colossal faggot cause it will literally make your animation X1000 better
>>605170I have reloaded guns. I go to a gun range every friday.BTW, this is an old reload you are referring to, why not check out my new ones I posted in this thread? And you guys wonder why I always make new threads because idiots like you don't fucking look past the first post, christ you are a dumb fuck.
New AnimationCheck it out, baby girl.https://youtu.be/jMgM2F3n8_0
>>605582Op here I'm making a game BTW, these are the weapons featured.
>>605703Oh, you're suddenly making a game now? Which engine?
>>605708Not suddenly, been a long preliminary thing.UE4
>>605708>>605712OP here, sorry forgot to say, also, I'm colluding with someone who knows some police officers and with his help hopefully this can be a police simulator for the LAPD.That is if I do exactly what he wants. My vision is something different. We'll see.
>>599150I ve always wondered why don't you convert that to .webm and upload it here instead of making us go to YouTube.Nice work, tho.
>>605756What do you think of my latest one?>>605582
