I have the means to script now & I’ve some questions before I start. I know nothing about scripting and yes I will go through the post about it but before that I’d prefer these questions answered. (To any who respond, please be as specific as possible in your reply)
40 min video, what would be a typical script period?
Besides of course life, I’m talking about time actually spent scripting if available. Too vague a question?
Would using the Handy on a prop while scripting be beneficial in any way? May be a stupid question but here ya go
Am I about to start learning a skill? If I wanna be accurate, is scripting something I’m gonna be spending a lot of time doing as if learning a skill - is what I mean.
[Edit] Alright, thank you everyone. I will take all this info and begin scripting. See ya in a week or 2, hopefully with some quality work.
There are tons of methods to scripting. You can go classic frame by frame (will take waay longer but your scripts will be better), you can just plot the bottom and top points to make a skeleton script and go back to add finer details, you can motion track and then edit the script manually. You’ll develop a style as you go. There’s someone on this site, who will remain nameless, that uses a digital sketch pad (instead of a controller, and his scripts turn out really well actually. - I personally recommend going frame by frame and I wouldn’t tackle a 40min video first. - you may get disheartened before finishing. Find a 3 min comp of something you enjoy and give that a go is my suggestion. Then once u get into the swing of things do the long videos ALSO WATCH HUSKY’S VIDEO TUTORIAL SERIES FOR SCRIPTING AND MAKE SURE YOU RUN THE VIDEOS U WANNA SCRIPT THROUGH HANDBRAKE TO MAKE THEM 30fps 1080p SO OFS WILL BE FLUID WHILE YOUR SCRIPTING
I would say a 40 min script could take you a week or more it depends on how much time per day you can set a side for scripting its a slow tedious process, can be best to break it up a bit 40 minutes is a long video for your first script. maybe try a 6 minute video first.
I’m also new the scripting here is the tutorial I decided to go with, it is very thorough and extremally helpful. Like others have mentioned already I strongly reccomend making a handful of shorter scripts to get the hang of it, and remember you’ll get better over time.
depends on the video if its a fap hero theres a program setup i have i use to auto click when it detects a circle reaching the beat point this makes things take less time it does down points only then i have plugin that can auto fill the top points probably would take 2.5 hrs using this method doing it by hand probably 3 - 4 hours
if it was a video with movement you wanted to capture i also have a plugin that can track movement and makes things more accurate but it also still takes alot of time but it would maybe cut the video script time down to 2 hours probably 4 - 5 by hand
doing things by hand tends to be most accurate but it takes too much time, this is unavoidable for something like an hmv that requires points based on audio but these also tend to be shorter and take alot less time
typically depending on the video type, cock or fap hero, hmv or pmv, or a movement script. it can take about an hour per 10 minutes or more
My first script was 30min and it took a while, probably around 10 hours to learn everything while I was scripting it. I come from a video editing background, which includes motion tracking, and that helps a bit. I script frame by frame, which is the longest but most accurate way to script. Now it takes me roughly 1-2 hours per 10min of scriping frame by frame.
