Week 8 – Animation practice
In this week’s lecture, we were shown how to use Krita’s animation features. The first one was just to make a ball move across the screen, to learn the basics of how Krita works. It took a little bit of time for me to become comfortable enough with Krita, but once I figured out the basics of how to make frames and move drawings, it became easier.
For the second exercise, we were asked to make the ball move along a line, paying attention to the acceleration and deceleration of the ball. Looking back at this now, I think I may have needed to slow the ball down more at certain points by leaving some frames in-between or moving it less. I think I’m comfortable enough with the weight of the ball though.
