After several days of simultaneously fighting off Max, OBS, and my antivirus software, I have finally completed my interactive animation:
Although it was a pain to get the Max patch to play video properly on my computer, I had a great time thinking up some fun animations for the arrangement of things on my desk and sitting down to draw them out. The process of setting up each shot and making tiny movements each frame brought me back to my days of making LEGO stop motion movies in elementary/middle school. I’m pretty happy with how my clips came out, considering this was my first time using Animate!
The only thing I really would’ve liked to add was some timed audio. One would think it would be easy to delay a bang to a sound playlist, but I just couldn’t find the right set of blocks to make it happen. (Why does [del] not wire directly into a playlist? Who knows…)
