Attacking animation in an isometric view.

Edit: Strange, it's not playing at the speed it plays on my pc.
animated gifs have the ability to set the animation speed... there is a default speed as well... it should play the same in browser, but not in FB since you control the speed there...

Yes, that's why it's strange. Linux image viewer plays it decently but chrome and firefox play it really slow.

i would say that when I view it (firefox), it is slow as well

just opened it up... I think there are too many frames! wow!

here is side by side at different gif speeds:

the 3rd one down moves the fastest for me... it had same number of frames but I set speed to 1

the first is: frames same, speed 10
the second one is: frames same, speed 0
the fourth one is: frames -30%, speed 10

I'm using gimp to save it and no matter what speed I set Firefox always plays it the same slow speed.
I think I just have too many frames for it to play any faster.

It doesn't look like an attacking animation of a bear more one nodding in subservience :)
So where do you get your 3D models? Do you have to move the rigging yourself?

I tried to post some new viking sprites but the 403 error will not let me do it.

It's inspired by how the animals attack in Age of empires. It would look better playing faster. :)

I modelled and rigged the bear from scratch in blender.

That should play faster.

Here is another angle.

I can't get this walk cycle right.

Edit: Getting better but not satisfactory yet.

lol! looks not too bad, but he is plopping down his left foreleg really hard compared to the others... looks like he is trying to walk to a 'beat'...

Thanks, I tried to fix that in this one.

Still looks a little strange. Maybe, something wrong with the back leg.

lol! fun! on the diagonals he seems to be 'sliding' alot, and same with the horizontal movement, except on the horizontal it also looks like his rear left leg is 'pushing off' like one might do while riding a skateboard... but these are things not in need of fixing necessarily... i fear one could spend a lifetime refining an animation.... diminishing returns et al...

So do you adjust the rigging using a side view?
If you look at some of the walking bear examples on the internet you should see how the joint angles change with time.

that is insane! Have you tried contacting the forum admin? What is different since you last were able to successfully copy/paste?
