    "Bullet Time" with DPKit, Any Interest in Tutorials?

    I've been continuing with my adventures in nodal animation, and here is my latest experiment, a "Bullet Time" effect. This technique is valid for all animations driven by Time/Frame, so works with DPkit as well as other techniques:




    Now, I'm in a quandary. I would like to share all this stuff I've been developing, yet it takes time and effort to produce a proper tutorial, and it would be nice to have a little return on that time. I fully intend to do a series of free short tutorials showing isolated aspects, like the above technique, but would there be any interest in a paid "Long Form" tutorial that covers an entire animation project from start to finish, say something similar to my original "Missile Tracking" animation:

    Or possibly a Mograph style "machine assembly" thing?

    Thoughts? Please be honest.

    Thanks Zardoz, I looked at that site, but didn't get very far, it kept freezing.

    However, judging by the lack of response, here or on YT, no-one's that interested anyway!

    Thanks for putting this together. I'm new in working in Layout, especially with nodes, and I think this was a great tutorial. Do you have any others or recommend any other tutorials using DPKit? I'm also thinking about picking up Rebel Hill's node tutorial as well. Thanks again.

    Thanks Andy.

    Craig's, (RH) nodal tutorials are excellent, and some of them are free on his YT page :https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkf...Aj-az1iIeL0wdg

    Other than that, Brian Phillips has done some wonderful stuff: https://www.youtube.com/user/bryphi77/videos

    ...but his videos can be a little hard to follow if you don't concentrate. That's partially why I decided to do short 10 minute (-ish!) tutorials focusing on a single subject, I think it's a tad easier to digest some fairly complex stuff when it's broken down into smaller chunks.

    Nice job - concise and informative!

    Care to share your scene files? While the bullet time null node structure was thoroughly explained, I'd also be interested in looking at the node structure created in the final scene for the blocks falling (it was only briefly shown).

    The "Part Move -Falling Blocks" is coming soon, I've had a brief hiatus whilst the home office moved rooms. The audio gear is now just about set up so I can record again, so keep a look out.

    As for "machine assembly", have a look here:

    It's not a tutorial, but a WIP that all uses the same principles as the blocks, just more of it. A very powerful technique.

    Hey Pinkmouse well done, thanks!

    I think I would pay for a larger set of downloadable mograph / dp kit tutorials with good examples.
