animation software question

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Sun Apr 03, 2016 7:54 am

Hey all,

So I ran into a a bit of a snag setting up some lighting. My health bar uses a destination atop blend, for stylistic reasons, and it's messing with my shadows. I think I need to perhaps, animate the bar and import it without any effects to avoid having the clash. Can anyone recommend anything? I hear toonz is opensource now, would that work for this? I'm pretty new to this kind of thing so any help is appreciated.

Hi,
I think toonz is a little bit overkill - but I hadn't time to try it so...

If it's just a health bar then I would suggest a plain picture editing program
like if vector based www.inkscape.org
or pixel based www.gimp.org
make different states of your health bar and import

  • System > On start of layout | system > load game from slot "brain"
  • System > On load failed | system > scroll to obj_Forum
