The default SV actors don't have anything suitable as a "battle start". I could just play an arbitrary animation, but it isn't nearly as interesting.


For an example of what I mean, take a look at this video (go to 1:10)




You'll start by seeing the enemy fade into view.


Boring.


Next, you'll see the girl crack her whip and the guy do something weird with his weapon.


That's the motion I'm interested in showing when a battle starts and would like to make a video for it.


Anyone have a battler with a spritesheet for this animation?

I'm not sure how helpful this will be for you, but I've seen a video showing a small animation for characters before the battle starts (nothing outside the character generator I think).

It uses Yanfly's plugins and some tweaking.

It's not the default ones but row 12 of my battlers is the Enter pose, used it so that enemies can have one also.

I already do this, although it's decently hard to set up unique poses for each, you can also just get them to use their attack animation and it looks cool, like they are drawing their weapon!

Also interested in this and interested in what happens with this post

Having a intro animation would be very cool to see would that girl with the fruits throw her Orange into the air and catch it xD

Take the Orange and eat it

I think this would be cool but throwing a separate object, in my mind, can only be done by animation e.g one of my party members flips a coin when they enter battle, that is done by a coin flip animation!

Is there a specific character you want to see an intro animation for or do you just need any battler sprite for demonstration purposes or something?

Happy Friday, y'all! I just got home from work and am sitting down with a nice cider, and I'm ready to chill and enjoy myself. Not sure if I'm gonna dive into any of my game-related projects or not tonight.... we'll see how I feel after unwinding for a bit I guess!
Just found out that mint tea made from chocolate mint tastes a bit like hot cocoa with candy cane stirred in. As I'm allergic to chocolate this makes me very happy.
It's special day for me tomorrow so time to vanish for 24 hours lol.
