Finished and handed inn :)

Today we had our last minutes to work on the assessment, and the time was really worth it. We would never have been finished If we wouldn't have gotten that time. 
It has been very fun to work with Seiya, she's a lovely person and we always enjoy ourselves when we work together. I would love to work with her again. 
The project itself was also very cool. I have never done animation before, but I will for sure try it again. I would have loved to get better at it. 
The animation video we made now wasn't the best and it could have been improved greatly by only having a better recording system and be in a place where we would not be disturbed. 

I think for the first time, the project went very well and I'm very happy.

Last lesson with animation

This lesson we had to work on the animation part of the unit. we had all the photos and everything, and now all we had to do was to put them together and make a film. I had used a lot of time before to try to find a program that would be good for the animation part of it, and I found a program called PENCIL. It was very good, but the problem was that is was best for drawing on the computer if we were going to add all the pictures we had it would take ages, since we could only upload one and one picture, and in addition to that they all had to be Bitmap photos. To convert all the photos one by one was also out of the question. So therefore we found out that it was much better to use windows movie maker that was far good enough for our animation video.
We really got far with the editing and making the video. The only thing we have to do now is really to add the voices and we are done.

Taking pictures

This weeks lesson went really well again. We did everything to the right times. We were able to take all the pictures that we needed for the whole story that we are animating.
Even though we did not really need a lot more time we got an extension to work with the product. Therefore next week we will work with making the short video with all the effects and voices.
