The clean version seems to flicker. Does it have something to do with the layers?

JohnK said...

it flickers because not every frame is inked yet.

Alberto said...

Zzzziiiip! That was too fast for me to appreciate it fully, will you have any held cells or have it a slower frame rate?

JohnK said...

Never

K-T said...

Nice work John! Can't wait until it's finished, hopefully now everyone will be reminded about how great you are with cartoons, and networks will accept a new show from you!

THAT WOULD BE GREAT. This is another [adult swim] bumper, right? I freakin' loved the last one.

Nice! enjoying the work! Out of curiosity, how much of this was done purely by you and how much was done with help of assistants? Or was it done all by you?

Peggy said...

Man, you animating this thing on 30s or something? That's super-slick.

CartoonSteve said...

Looks like it will be action packed! I miss your Quicktime posts. They seemed easier to step forward and backward - at least on my browser anyway.

JohnK said...

It is Quicktime. The latest quicktime, however is more primitive than the last one. It doesn't let you advance frame through a film.

You could try dumping the new version and going back to the earlier one. That's what I had to do.

Erik Robinson said...

!!! Wow, how exciting! Can't wait to see more.

Trevor Thompson said...

Oh man... I miss the frame-by-frame option. This requires repeated viewing. Super quick!

Thiago Levy said...

When can we expect the finish product? I can't wait!

Herman G said...

Niiicee!

Adam said...

Is this an Adult Swim bumper?

Luke said...

John, great animation, perhaps for these demonstrations though, loop the animation over and over for maybe ten or so seconds so that it does not go by so quick.

Trevor G. said...

It is nice that we can see it frame by frame. Hardly anything allows that on the internet.

I love what you did with the feet, that's some real cartoony goodness.

@CartoonSteve - like John K. said, the newest version of the free Quicktime Player (v 10.0) is terrible. Apple ruined it , just like they ruined iMovie . Download an older version of Quicktime Player like 7.6 (try here: http://mac.oldapps.com/quicktime.php ) or even better get Quicktime PRO which has a lot of advanced features for editing and exporting QT movies. http://store.apple.com/us/product/D3380Z/A

Also, about using Quicktime to view QT movies in a browser window: try using the Firefox browser instead of Safari. If you have Quicktime 7 installed then Firefox will still use the older QT 7 plug-in to play QT movies in the browser window, but Safari automatically defaults to the newer QT Player v. 10 plug-in (the bad one). Seems like Chrome also defaults to a newer version of the QT plug-in, so you can't step through the movies like in Firefox. Use Firefox version 3.6.16 on a Mac because in the new Firefox 4.0 for Mac the Quicktime Plug-in crashes frequently. (this is as of current date, April 23, 2011 -- hopefully in the near future Firefox will fix the issue with the QT plug-in crashing).

If you are looking for an older version of Firefox or older version of almost any app look here: http://mac.oldapps.com/

Nice stuff there, John!

Say, who's doing the backgrounds/color for your Adult Swim shorts? There was some neat stuff in that elephant short you showed us not too long ago.
