Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!:iconhappybirthdaysignplz::iconb-cakeplz::party::airborne::dance::boogie::beer::iconwineplz::drunk::puke::iconbedsexplz:

how did i miss your birthday? :ashamed:

ok i got a question dealing with animating fractals. i started working on one yesterday and i think i might've saved it--Apophysis, that is--from asc files to the set and key flames. what i'm having a issue with is VirtualDub--importing those files in there to make the animation complete. i downloaded different codecs software and such but i have NO IDEA how they work or what to do and it's kinda frustrating. the tuts and forum answers make it sound so easy but it's not, everytime i try to drag or open it it doesn't recognize it and i have no idea how to convert. any solutions?

The easiest way to use VirtualDub is from source images that are single frame plain image files - jpg or png or even bmp etc.
Have them all the same name but with a number following that name in the filename as xx for 00 to 99 or xxx for 000 to 999 (if more than 100 images) etc.
Have them all in the same folder, and you should be able to get VirtualDub to import the lot as an animation - though you may need to select an appropriate option on the VirtualDub file browser - I forget exactly what as I now use a Mac and "MPEGscreenclip" from www.squared5.com - I think there's a Windows version of this too but it does require that you have the free version of Quicktime installed first - importing individual frames works with Screenclip too.

yeah i figured that out yesterday when i was trying to open my key and set flames. when i finally figured that out (the set flames) i started rendering them 1 by 1, with each flame taking 30 mins each--and i got 180 flames. i'm on #19 at the moment :lmao: now i see why people say it takes a few days to render these suckas, i gotta do it 1 by 1 like cells used in 2D animation.

as far as post-processing i own a copy of After Effects and :iconmorphapoph: helped me find some links on sequencing images on AE. since i'm a bit more familiar with that software i was going to use that for editing. as soon as i remember how to add music to it i'll start making music videos, i also own a copy of Ableton so i'm str8er than 6 o'clock homie. :nod:

i assume i'm on the right path so far yes?

You're better positioined than me - you may notice my YouTube stuff is either silent or just using the available free stuff....
Although I could use "Final Cut Pro" if pushed as the guy I work for/with at Parys Technografx has a copy of that (he actual won it in the "raffle" at an Apple developer conference).

Final Cut Pro? i assume it's similar to AE? i think i remember someone telling me in school that Adobe has their software free for students so i should look closely at that, CS6 is already out now. i already have taken advantage of Autodesk with the few programs i did download (still need to check if i dl'ed 3DS Max, the other stuff i'm not too familiar with). if Adobe does have free software for students i'll dl After Effects and slide you a copy aiight?

available free stuff? you mean animation software? whatever works right?

No, by available free stuff I just meant the sound (e.g. on "Mood swings").
Final Cut Pro is the equivalent of say Avid Liquid Pro (formerly Pinnacle's Liquid Edition).
