Why Animating Takes So Long? by MissKittens Why Animating Takes So Long? by MissKittens
See those 'Folders' On the side bar? Each of those folders hold 3-5 frames each XDD

And there are 10 of them XD;


For only 2 seconds of animating ewe;

Why do you need all these folders for the frames? :U
Just asking

MissKittens Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
Back then, folders were a good way to keep all the frames in because each frame had a different section "Lineart" "Color" And if it had any extra details like "Blood" and stuff like that.  Without the folders, the frames would keep going on and on and on until it just became a massive group of layers that I have no idea which frame is which. XD


TLDR

Its organized so I don't loos things.

Yeah I animate in SAI. Just turn the opacity down of your previous frame and use folders to keep track of which scene are going on c:

Nah you save the pictures and put them into a video program like Windows Movie Maker. I use Sony Vegas though because there are lots of cool effects to use.

Caan you add music to the SAI animation, or do you use something else?

No. SAI is only an art program. You can't do anything with SAI except draw on it.
If you want to animate and add music on it, try Windows Movie Maker, Flash, or Sony Vegas.

its like this, we'll use it in simple terms, its like drawing a bouncing ball animation, you draw every frame seperately on Paint(anykind) and then once your done you arrange and put them all together on WindowsMovieMaker and make it repeat itself, basically a loop.So basically trying to lip-sync with these kinds of programs is a lot harder then flash and what not, it takes up a billion of your time from your hands
