Somewhat Defeated

Posted on

This is something of an apology. But I’m also writing it because I promised to post something and I’ve got to stick to my deadlines.

I’ve been thinking for a while about getting back into some animation and making some more videos for the old (old!) youTube channel. This afternoon was my first attempt in a long time at making something again. I thought I would start out simple and do a little loop animation. It ended up taking me a good 3 hours or so and most of that was trying to export the damn thing.

It’s just reminded me how much I hate the technical side of this. I can do timing and framing and build assets but when it comes to figuring out codecs and aspect ratios and bitrates I just don’t get it. It’s incredibly frustrating and exhausting.

Anyway, here’s what I managed.

I’d still like to make something and get that youTube running again, but I think it’s gonna be some time… later.
