View Full Version : Anyone good at making simple animations?

So I've been in need of a channel intro (and outro) and I thought of a really cool idea. Why not make it like the title-screen of a videogame. It could say MagicalFishy at the top and it could have a few creative options like "Start video." Basically I'd like it to have an animated background with my name as the "title" of the game, and the options below. It would then have a cursor next to "Start video" and it would select (I can add sound effects) and probably go white. It definitely has to be colorful... but not anything that will cause epilepsy. I can edit the sound effects and background music in myself, I'd just like the animation. If you'd like to take up this job be sure to reply. If you'd like something in exchange for it as well be sure to let me know, just let me know what you need. (Keep in mind that trading Growtopian items for outside game content is illegal and I will not be trading anything from in-game.

But please do let me know in advance what your plans are, because I wouldn't want the finished product to be something I don't like and your time would be wasted.

*cough* I'm looking at you Parpul *cough* maybeeeeeee

These are some great examples:

Please don't make it longer than five seconds (the intro), I typically click off videos like that and I'm sure others do as well because it's a waste of time.

Definitely wouldn't be. It would actually be pleasing to look at too. I also wouldn't use it in all my videos, and I wouldn't play it right away either. :p

Alright, I'd be all for it then.

Sorry I still have ptsd from all the crappy 10 second long dubstep intros with flashy bouncing names

I'll make you one if you're okay with it :]

Anything in particular you'd like in the background, colours of text, theme, etc.?

The background... hmm. I was maybe thinking of a sunset over a forest or something. Tell me if you have any ideas. I'd definitely like the text to be colorful... blue and orange are my favorites.

Sure, will try. Also, would you like me to make it more retro-ey or more new-ish? (hopefully you know what I mean xD)

Hmm... I'd definitely say retro-ey like GameBoy-ish. Maybe instead of the sunset forest thing you could do like a coffee cup steaming off of a rock with cherry blossom trees (or branches) on both sides? I dunno, whatever works best for you. :p

If you could also drop some One Piece/Pokemon/Naruto references in there or something that'd be totally bomb. (If you did, nothing too crazy... just some simple stuff)

I might make one if I have time, but it'll probably be in gif form and made with ms paint.

I mean that'd work, but it has to be mp4 because I cannot use gifs in my video editor. D:

Cool beans. I'd like to see as many variants are possible. (Hence why I'm letting multiple people create one.)

I suppose I can make a Pokemon reference, but I really know nothing about One Piece/Naruto, sorry :sweatdrop:
Anyways, I'll try my best :]
Just give me some time, Idk when I can finish it xD

Not too sure, just depends on how lazy/not lazy I'll be xP (also if I'm not busy).
I'll try get it done this week tho if I can.

I've been an animator on youtube for a while, check this stuff out.

Warning, I had my mate help and it can get a little bit explicit. Kinda quiet though, sound quality isn't great, feel free to adjust your volume as you see fit.

I know you're not Super Minecraft Kid.

If you were, you'd probably be banned on the forums for spam or something xD

Definitely doesn't have to be that complicated. I just want there to be the title screen and then it selects "start video" and then I cut into my video. Cx

Okay, I'm making one, using the metroid screen as something to design it off of.
