Animation: Lewa and the Rama

Recommended Posts

Oh. My. Kanohi. O_O This is incredible. First off, first off: How did you make this??? Arduous toiling through flash code to get the animations right? Modifying existing animations? Using an animation program like blender? Do you have a sprite sheet? [:D]

Haha, looks like Lewa was really enjoying himself! This is really great. Good job constructing those backgrounds and animations, they looked professional. Also, fantastic use of Lewa11's Lewa music. You pulled off exactly what I had visualized when I first heard the song.

The sprites look EXACTLY like the MNOG games, the music complements the scene & it's a lot of fun to watch.

Excellent. Oustanding animation, which matches the music perfectly. I'm looking forward to seeing more work from you. :)

 

By the way, if you made this as a Flash animation, could you also provide us with a .swf file for playback? The framerate on YouTube is less than optimal and the benefit of vector graphics is also lost this way.

Thanks everyone so much for the feedback! Glad you all like it and I look forward to making more stuff in the future.

They're from Templar's stuff, so I should hope so! :D

 

This needs so much more exposure.

 

How long did it take you to produce it?

The concept has been floating in my head since I first heard the music, and at some point over the past 6 months I penciled down different ideas for reference. The bulk of the animation was done over about a week and a half of heavy work during my spring break.

I didn't do this initially because of the poor sound compression Flash has. Apparently, though, that's just by default and easily remedied.

 

So!

That's great. Do you plan to do more projects like this in the future?

Something to note is that, no matter how many plot holes or problems I might point out in Bionicle G1, I love G1 above just about any thing else material in this world. I may bash it a lot, but that just shows how much I love it. (I won't go into explaining how that works.)

Having the animation actually follow the beat of the music was the icing on the awesome cake. I love this, it dragged out my nostalgia for Templar's animations again. :)

This really is incredible. I love that the story is how Lewa got himself into the situation we see him in MNOG. The fight between all the Rama and the changing Kanohi really made the fight entertaining beyond it being a hack and smash. This is great work.

Great job, Pereki. You captured MNOG's style perfectly.

(The music, though, I know I've heard something quite similar before. Can't place it. Maybe it was just listening to the QotT soundtrack at some point, although I don't remember listening to it that much.)

First of all, please let me just say that, although I visit BZP for news information now and then, I actually made an account just so I could congratulate you on this piece of work.  I've honestly wanted this fight scene to exist for some time and am so glad you have created it and done it justice.

Am I missing something that is common knowledge here, or have you managed to extract the graphic files that made up MNOG? I've tried searching for them countless times but haven't been able to get aything usable in order to do some flash animating myself.  Any advice on this for a "I've not animated in years but used to be fairly decent at it" animator who does not want to spend any more time attempting to clone this art style? :P

 

Anyway, thanks again for putting the time into this.  It's made my week

SWFRIP can take stuff out of SWF files, like Templar's BIONICLE stuff is largely made up of. I use Flash CS6 for animating, I don't know how well/if other programs would be able to use what SWFRIP pulls out.

 

Glad you liked the animation, thanks for registering just to say so!

Thanks!  I'll probably have a go with MNOG just to test and play with, but I'll leave the serious work to the pro's such as yourself ;)
