  1. I want to invite everyone to submit their work to be part of the 2011 Citrus Cel Animation Festival! We are preparing for a stellar program of films, and art celebrating independent and commercial animation. We need all you to make it an awesome event! We are certain that the second year will be grander than the last. There will be three days of films, software and product workshops, contests, lectures, and an art exhibition. Dripsback, The 5 Points Theatre, and The Art Institute of Jacksonville proudly present the three day festival, April 8-10, 2011. Film submissions are free. Rules and regulations are detailed in the submission form on the Citrus Cel website. General information about the festival can also be found in last year's program. I look forward to seeing your work, and hope that you all will be a part of this festival! Thanks! Bill Waller Assistant Director Citrus Cel Animation Festival http://www.citruscel.com
  2. Thanks for the comments guys! Its a strong idea to split them and I suppose we'll have to take a look a look at doing that next time around.
  3. We recently got around adding some of our newer work to our reel. Hope you guys enjoy! http://www.vimeo.com/14249359
  4. I will agree that the square pixels is a benefit...but the number of usable pixels is pretty relative to how big your subject is in your frame. As far as I can tell, it will always be easier to get a clean key with uncompressed SD than with any form of compressed HD.
  5. I've used the HVX for a few chroma key projects and haven't run into a single issue pulling keys from it. I've seen some muddy color results straight out of the camera, but 4:2:2 gives you a little more lattitude for color correction and more information for keying than you'll get out of the EX with 4:2:0. Plus you can find the HVX used for pretty cheap if you do some digging.
  6. Shane is an illustrator / fine artist / SVA grad who has worked digitally for atleast the last 10 years. As far as the stream...we fully intend to upgrade everything when we can. Thanks for the note.
  7. We just added a few new pieces to our website and thought I'd share them. We haven't cut a new reel just yet...so viewing the piecese individually will have to do for now. http://www.dripsblack.com/work.htm If you like us...become a fan on Facebook...we update pretty regularly. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dripsblack/81638494675 Thanks everyone...hope you enjoy.

  8. Fringe uses this method to show locations throughout each episode.
  9. I was in the process of putting together a little sample when mete posted his...but here's a link anyway: CamTest.aep For camera1 I used the same method as mete...with one keyframe every time I wanted a dip in velocity then shaped the velocity curve. For camera2 I got a more exaggerated version by animating a general downward motion...then setting a key every time a word entered the frame and every time one was about to leave. Then I spread those keys apart so that section took more time and the motion between words would take less. Then I worked the curve to smooth it out. I know its probably not gonna help much now...but since I already did it I figured I'd share it.
