Rotating Voxel Animations

Sat May 21, 2011, 8:33 PM
Hello! :)

I've received some comments recently on my new avatar regarding the animation.

AV - Voxel Heart by firstfear



I'd just like to clarify that the animation frames themselves were in essence created by the program I used called Qubicle Constructor.

Qubicle Constructor is a voxel image creation program

(Click for Voxel Wiki)

In Qubicle Constructor you can create images, scenes, etc with what I'd equate to being like giant 3D pixels, or toy blocks. Here's a screencap of the original heart I created in the program :)




You can pan around the 3D construct to edit it from any angle. The program also has an option called 'turntable' which pans the object around like you see in my Heart avatar. It also allows you to save out an animated gif of the resulting image.

I did some editing to the animation in Imageready; cut the animation length by half (redundant frames), resized and then fixed up some ugly pixels. I also added the darker border just for personal taste. In the end though for me, through this neat program it was a pretty easy process, something just for fun :)

Check it out if you'd like!

"I also added the darker border just for personal taste."
nice. it looks cel-shaded. c:

can you add a border in Qubicle Constructor?
or do you need a special program?

no, sadly Qubicle Constructor really just allows you to place the 'blocks'. any outlines or indepth detail needs to be overlayed/added in manually in another program like photoshop etc :)

well, atleast i have Photoshop! :)
is it complicated to add outlines?
do you know any good tutorials?

i was thinking of downloading it. i read that you need a 3 button mouse.i have one of those. c:
is there anything else i would need?

thank you for responding. it's much appreciated! c:

Well, it was more time consuming than complicated I guess :). What version of Photoshop do you intend to use? I use 7.0 which uses Imageready but anything after CS I believe actually does animation right in Photoshop :).

I don't specifically know of any tutorials on adding outlines to things I'm sorry ^^;. I just used the pencil tool to add a 1 pixel line around the edge of each frame by hand :).

Also, where did you read that one might need a 3 button mouse? What would one need that for specifically? I use a tablet with only 2 buttons (left and right equivalent), so I'm not sure what you mean. I've also used just a two button mouse before I had my tablet :). A 4 button mouse won't hinder you of course, but I don't know how it would be *needed* per say either :3

i have "PS 5.0" [OOOOOOOOOLD:iconotlplz:]

i see.
so, the outline was done FRAME BY FRAME?
am i right? c:

idk what it's used for(maybe scrolling?), but i read about the mouse on the official website, near the download button.
you can use a tablet?! GREAT. i have a tablet!

ok, i have PS and i have a 3 button mouse and a tablet.
so, i basically can get started on the program?! :dance:

Ohh okay, yeah the third button probably just makes certain functions easier :3. Does Ps 5.0 come with Imageready? I've not use anything released before 7.0 so I'm not sure.

And yup I drew the outlines in by hand frame by frame :).

so long as you have a program capable of opening and editing animations you should be good to go! :3. Qubicle's website has information on the basics of their program if you get stuck with anything :3 <3

i THINK so. is it a separate program? >.>
either way, you've gave me enough information to google all these programs and look them up. :star:

Does the free edition allow you to do what you did? I would just want it to make avatars.

It most certainly does. The paid version just allows you to export your files into an extra two different file extensions (and you probably won't use them anyway).
