Darn Aliens by ArtBIT Darn Aliens by ArtBIT
[EDIT: Tue Apr 8, 2008.] Halved the filesize.
:star: Watch the full version, with sound, here: Darn Aliens :star:

This animation was made using a free online animation application called the ShapeShifter.
The whole animation was made using only 4 basic types of shapes: circles, semi-circles, rectangles and triangles.
The application doesn't have a tweening feature or anything similar, so everything had to be done frame by frame, by hand, and that took a lot of time and work, since this animation has little more than 650 frames.
But I guess it payed off, since it ended up being a finalist in the ShapeShifter competition, and won me an iPod
:#1:

Enjoy!

So they say, but it was never proven to be too heavy.

As for the animation, I totally love the use of light and the swooping motion of the UFO.

Yeah, the lightning and the transparenty were pretty tricky to achieve in ShapeShifter, since transparency is not supported, and color picker doesn't allow entering the correct color values, only hand picking it from the colour rectangle...
Thanks :)

Ja baš i nisam neki animator... ja to onako, čisto iz radoznalosti...
A što se projekta tiče, naravno što da ne :)
Ali fora je što sam ja konstantno zauzet odkad radim na dA :/
Što se da primetiti po broju mojih radova u zadnjih godinu dana...

...ali možda se možemo nekako iskombinovati...

omgomgomgomgomg, I love this! At first I was like, "that cow is going to be hit into the fence." Then it started sparking and I thought it was going to break down. :lol: Did not expect that it was an old man shooting it. :rofl: That was fantastic, omg. :hug:

Sweet work, AB! It's simple, but funny. I love it when the aliens have to put the cow back down. Too cute!

Have you seen Pixar's work on aliens? This reminded of that work:
