Let me preface this with I’m not looking to start a fight, just open a dialog to hopefully improve the scripts we all want to enjoy. If you get to the end and just want to call names or insult me, please don’t. If on the other hand you want to help me understand why you think another way of scripting is fine or better, please do.
I have the Keon and when I script I go frame by frame and do 1 point at the top of a movement then another point at the bottom of a movement, back and forth till I’m done with varying depths as to match the video I’m scripting to, sometimes I can use the “repeat” button to minimizehow many frames I actually have to go through but I still make sure the action matches the stroke There are no “curves” in my scripts, just sharp peeks and valleys and I’ve seen similar in others scripts, it works well with the Keon and I get good reviews when I post.
Other scripts have curves with multiple points on any one directional stroke. The Keon stutters on these strokes, pausing for maybe a millisecond on the extra points, distracting me and lowering the immersion.
So my main question is do other devices have the ability to smooth the movement out?
Aside from that I’d like to make the (constructive)
criticism that the main places I’ve found the curves is on scripts is when people use the “on the fly” mode (I can tell as I open the script on the creator and that’s what gets selected instead of what I use) and I have issues with that mode not only because of the curves but because there will be a lag between what a scripter sees, when they start the movement and how far they make it so the scripts end up being out of sync with the action. I have adjusted the lag in my player only for the scripter having differing lag through out, probably during to fatigue or distractions.
I get that “OTF” is faster so what one guy can do in an hour would take me 3 thus more scripts for more videos for more people to enjoy. Yet I’ve seen descriptions where a scripter says they used OTF, aren’t happy with it, and maybe later would come back and fix it. Yet they never seem to.
So my ask is that other scripters take the time to make the best scripts they can instead of the most they can.
