I've been playing around more with motion tweens recently. I know a lot of peeps out there are staunchly anti computer motion but they do help speed up the process quite a bit (I'd probably still be on Episode 2 of Half Full without them)
Also having sexy looking FBF animation is nice but I usually try and focus on the plot and stuff (Cue cries of "Plot!? What Plot!?) Well that and I still need way more practice with FBF.
I haven't completely abandoned Frame by Frame, here's a short Walk Cycle I made about a week ago
I've no idea when Half Full Episode 9 will be out but watch this space.
