I dont know if this is the right category so my apologies if it is in the wrong cat.
I made a couple of funscripts via the JoyFunScripter in the past but i just haven’t found a way to speed up the process. At the moment i script almost frame-by-frame which makes even a 10 minute video very long to script. I tried using the joystick method but that just makes everything so jittery.
Are there methods you guys use which speeds up the process (and are willing to share)?
What helped me speed things up was using a art tablet (made use of my Huion Kamvas Pro 20, thanks Jacecolm!) So you could literally pen stroke the motions with On-The-Fly mode.
I’m not as good as the more experienced scriptors but you just need to play around with the delays and playback speed to the point where it is comfortable for you. Using the tablet myself I can script scenes at regular playback speed but for the more complicated scenes I’d go over them a few times til they are correct and adjust manually if needed.
Yes basically what @Cloudyfire said - that and at the end of the day comes down to practice, reflexes, and free time. Just with the on the fly methods, if you want to get as accurate as frame by frame, then its important to check your recorded points often as there is alot more room for error to mistime strokes and depth
This is an old post now, but I just use a touchpad on my laptop. The key is figuring out controlled and minimal movements (I use quite a small simulator box in JFscripter). I started on the fly at around .14…Now most of my scripting is comfortably done between .2-.3… which keeps my corrections at a minimum for well rhythmed videos… Dudes that can’t f- slow scripting times dramatically though.
Sorry if you already know this (sometimes the seemingly obvious isn’t always obvious), but when scripting-on-the-fly with a tablet, mouse, etc… You will need to turn on recording (gamepad icon + play or right click inside the simulator box). You then move up and down inside the simulator box to record points.
