I'm hoping if you have some time you could give me some help.
I'm doing a motion comic (my first one) for film school; a silly throw-away activity. I know a lot about editing, but little about motion. We are using Motion 3 on our Macs. I saw your tutorial for motion comics on Comic Life. Do you have any idea how to go about doing them in Motion? I'm struggling to find "Motion Comic on Motion 3 Tutorial" lol. Any advice would be great, not necessarily looking for a huge response.
I plan on using Mega Man sprites (I used to read Bob and George) and having Mega Man and Proto Man fight each other. I know how to manipulate the Motion 3 tools, but is it easy to get the sprites to move around? It seems easy, just tedious.
Thank you for any help! Appreciated!
Please e-mail me at KDRiel@hotmail.com. I'll have a better chance of reading your reply there. Thanks guys!
I think what he means is motion comics in the sense of 2-d art panels that are manipulated in 3-d space to seem like you are making an "animatic" of a storyboard. The more involved versions of these add independent bits of animation to the individual panels, even as the master camera view pans across the overall composition. As if you put a comic book on a rostrum camera, dig? And added a few simple layered animated effects onto the various panels. At least that's what *I* thought he was talking about. There are great examples of this in the bonus materials of the "Watchmen" DVD.
