The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Do it yourself animations

I just found out about a fun new website last night. (Thanks Maggie) It allows you to build a short animation complete with your own custom dialog.

That's right. Just type in whatever you can think of and the actors do their job. You then have some choices to spice it up.

A basic account is free. Anna and I played with it for about 20 minutes last night and came up with the episode above. A premium account is only 5 dollars a month.

I've been waiting a long time for technology to make computer animation easier and more fun. It seems like that day is almost here if places like keep up the good work of bringing esoteric image manipulations down to a cookie cutter level.

Check out this one by rcg if you want a good laugh.
