What duration would you recommend each frame to be?
Would 5/100ths or 10/100ths of a second do?

I hoped I put up in the description everyone HAS to do 10/100. but I did not. Still most people will probably do it, as it is standard and easy to work with.
I suggest 10/100 ;)
About 5/100, most browsers are not able to correctly show the speed at that rate actually... :(

firefox can handle 3/100.

but at that speed 8 frames are nothing.

When you save it, make sure you click the loop button. (next to where you enter the file name)
Loop 0 is loop infinite!

Just kidding. As long as I keep coming up with creative challenges, you will see my name on the challenge too. Before mods used to come up with them, but they are as modest to not put their names on 'm.

Yeah, that was the first thing I thought when I read the challenge. Also gave me an excuse to do all that transparent-y stuff, which was fun and annoying in equal parts.

Way too many frames, l4wr4! You have 10 frames, and the contest only allows for 8. Also, they need to be timed at 10/100ths of a second each.

I know that the transparency is messed up, it's not really an error, it's just a little lazyness in my part.

so try not to pay attention to that while
you guys figure out a way for me to make that stick spin more naturally!

pls. :D

If I'm using UnFREEz 2.1 to animate a series of GIFs, how do I make sure it's 1/10th (or 10/100th) frame speed?

Also, Check it out!:

Unfreez automatically does it right, so there is no need to worry about anything :)

Dude, I compared them... I made them!

You chopped off a bit of the arms and the legs, that's it. I matched it frame for frame otherwise.

Not really, since i've never seen that thing before you showed it me..

Whatever you think, i know for a fact i never copied/used it..

and for one, i compared the first 2 frames they're not even the same >.>

He was not joking, however I believe he could have said it a bit nicer.
Anyway, try doing this dance yourself (while kneeling twice in a second). You will figure it is impossible :( Even putting your hands up and down like that that fast is hard!

That was kind of harsh..especially without offering any help or tips.
 
It is mario.  He's a video game character not a real human.  If I remember the game correctly, he used to be able to jump a lot higher than he is tall. 
 
I think it's kind of cute and fun.

There's like 4 frames that are similar, and even that they have like 10 height difference >.>

It's really Fu"*%ing me off that people accuse me of doing it, either though they have no evidence.

Uh.. Quake you really did not help your cause here.
Looks completely like an edited worse version TBH.
I'm not saying it is an edit, I'm saying it looks like one. :/

And for some reason you even submitted it, colored and without a f**king head?
I think the problem is you don't know what to do with the face since this is so referenced it's not even funny.
The only difference I see is height of the crotch and and the arms bend down with the body.

Agree'd with Souly.
It looks like it, almost exactly.  It's unoriginal and not making you learn anything.

Try doing something original, it'll make you grow.  :)

This challenge is great, I have to be in on this.  I has ideas

quake, what a piece of sh*t that you didn't even finished, not to mention you took the most over edited dancing animation in the net and just copied it. it doesn't even matter if that was an edit or not, its just crap, and gets worse with that lame excuse of not being able to finish it when you still have like 5 days to at least complete it. it would be the same sh*t if you took the peanut butter jelly icon and amde another edit of it. i don't even know why was allowed in the gallery. its a male character with the anatomy of a female, wich its so poorly shaded that seems that his ass is in the front, not to mention you totally failed to see where the torso should be.

It's only half done. It will face left after those first four frames so it looks sorta charlie brown-ish, but do you think the legs look too fast?

The last december there was a challenge motivating to do that... the one about the 2009 calendar. It was?

@antiboton: And his body, and his legs, and his face, and his tail. he is DANCING remember?

@plyvinyl: You have just gave the outlines different colors. Why not do larger cells of darker and lighter colors to give him some volume?

lol, i just read it again and yh, i can see what you thought..

I meant the last part to be on a different sentence..

if you recall, probably not, but oh well.. Around 5 months ago there was a competition about something big being represented as something small..

He and i did the same idea, and he accused me of stealing his idea. The idea was to do a whale in a fish bowl..

I think he just has a grudge..

THe part "and they don't even match enough to be rip >.>" wasn't meant to be connected with the previous statement.

There's like 4 frames that are similar, and even that they have like 10 height difference >.>

It's really Fu"*%ing me off that people accuse me of doing it, either though they have no evidence.

Just with my experience with animation 1/10 of a second seems a bit too fast.  I'm sure if it's done right, it will work just fine.  My experience with video game animation is a bit slower and still created the desired effect.  I usually go with 1/20 of a second.  I could be wrong but a lot of the entries seem a bit spastic.  No matter how hard I try; unless skipping frames; my entries look very fast.  Then I'd loose animation detail (the piece would do less).  Don't get me wrong, I'm going with this.  Just looking for some input.  Maybe I'm just out of my mind.

i belive 1/10 is slow actually, where 1/20 is basically bullet time.. in other words, its a matter of taste, and in most cases every animation represents itws own unique context.

@ Plyvinyl:
I think it's really great.  I love the swoosh and the motion.  The skin color on the head could use some work.  On the standard gray background it will look really washed out.  Also, the pants have a darker outline than the jacket (dunno if it was purposeful).  Maybe you could work to shade in between the outline and the main color?

AND... separate note, I submitted something meant for the Weekly Challenge, but forgot to press "submit to weekly challenge."  What do I do?

Adiprints, click on the edit button, and click it. Or hope that a mod notices it and puts it in anyway.

I tried the Edit button, but the function to enter into the challenge isn't there.  I guess I'll just hope that an admin notices it.  

Thanks for trying to help, though.  And, I loved this challenge btw.  Great idea.

You could always try to delete it from your gallery and then resubmit.  There should be a 'radio button' to check.

Gah, you forgot twice? O_o

I noticed the first one bit I didn't see the other one

In the future, if you forget don't hesitate to message me or any other staff member and tell them that you forgot to check the weekly challenge box. This goes for anyone else too.

redo it, make her actually move and do a real dance, instead of just switching sections of the image. its a 48*48 image, you have unlimited colors tu use, its just 8 frames, and you still have a whole, full weekend to do it.

don't limit yourself to such crappy level, force yourself and push your ability beyond the basic and necesary standards.

and trust skamo, they do even add you to the challenge when you don't even want to, and then take you out leaving everyone confused *sending me pms from alt accounts acusing me of cheating*.

*not true.
