Hello^^

I've been trying to make an anime-styled cutscene animation since some time now, but I've come across a certain problem every time: The animation is just too laggy.

(Example of what I mean: http://blackrosemii.deviantart.com/art/Yet-another-animation-test-523561903 )

I'm using Sai (for drawing) and Gimp (for animation) and the number of frames for each shot are around 15 (I don't know if that helps)

So, what I want to ask now, is how to make it more fluently. If there's someone who can help me with that problem, I'd be really happy ^^

Hmmm... what's the frame rate (frames per second) you're using?

Unfortunately, that's something I don't know, so I don't know how to check it ^^°

I'm not an expert but if you have in GIMP show each frame every 0.2 seconds then you'd have 5 frames per second. It's just math xD! Reducing this number would make it look more 'alive' and not so 'laggy' but you'd need to draw more frames in return.


My signature is kinda laggy too, isn't it xP ?

I see Oo I actually thought having a frame for about 0.2 seconds would be enough XD Okay, I'll try reducing the seconds next time^^

for animation this depends how many frame you will use  a mouth animation and eyes animation can be done at 3 frame pers second

you can download sai animation assistant who work with png and this permit to control the animation like you want and this free!

Sometimes I wonder if I feature creep... 225 magic spells is a lot lol.
Being hit with nostalgia for something that's gone is both a great thing and so sad.

But being a creative means having ideas for bringing stuff back to life, which can be frustrating and rewarding in it's own right.

It's my Party and I'll cry if I want to. The best b-day present I could have is if my mapper came back. No idea where he went.

Updated Senary's design (left). The previous one is overdesigned and her lack of functional pants is distracting and undermines her as a strong female character. She now has compression shorts, shorter hair, and a loose-fitting shirt for a modern look. She was lacking the authority of her original design, so I gave her military cap with her namesake.
