God dammit, Bob! by AkaNova God dammit, Bob! by AkaNova
How many times do the other Beans have to tell you, that it's not a very good idea to put your milk right next to the Potions...
Oh well, at least Spot doesn't seem to care at all about the whole situation and enjoys his special drink.
He will be fine :D

So this was supposed to be an Entry for Griffsnuffs "Worst Owner" Contest, but I couldn't quite make it in time.
The thing was, that I didn't calculate the whole rendering issue in my intentions at all and THAT took me soooooo friggin' long to get right.
Bunny Emoji-07 (Emoji Cry) [V1] 

The first Gif I rendered directly in After Effects took me at least an hour, only to be waaaay to big in its size and having a bad quality.
After that I tried to save it as a PNG-Sequence, which is every single image of this 20 seconds animation, which were like 500-600 pictures in the end and surprise surprise ~
My shitty computer can't deal with it and there was like no chance to even open all the pics in Photoshop and make a Gif out of them there.
At this point my mood was already like... Angry Yellow Diamond because I realized, that I won't make it in time.
So back to another plan. I saved it as an Avi, which took a LOT of time again and then I tried to convert it with another program I found online.
Of course I wanted to be more clever this time and rendered only 3 seconds out of it at first to see, if the quality improved with the settings I chose.
Finally after a few tweaks, it looked fine enough in the preview, so it was time to render the whole thing ~
Which took like two hours. We are talking here about 20 SECONDS. TWENTY. And my computer started to sound like it was running a damn marathon.
But I must say the most satisfying moment in this whole drama was, when it was finally through the render process, I opened it, everything looked fine at first
until I noticed that there were ugly flaws somehow in the animation aka colors, which looked in the preview just fine looked suddenly oversaturated or every 5
seconds some details of the backgrounds went missing, because why not?!
Yeah, this was really testing my patience.
But I put quite some work and time into this entry, so I definitely didn't want to let it end like this.
Not on my watch!! ò n ó
So I downloaded two other GifConverter and did pretty much the same thing again, which took a long time again as well.
And this time...it was the same thing over and over AGAIN, besides having errors because of reasons I didn't understand in some runs.
I did some research then and asked some wise people for advice, which gave me finally a new idea.
But NO idea, if this was really a thing, which turned out to work better or just coincidence, because in the end I saved the whole Animation as a QuickTimeVideo
and THEN I let it run through Instagiffer to get the final version,you're seeing now.
SUCCESS. More or less.. since I still couldn't get rid of all flaws, which got me a bit down.
I didn't want to upload it at first, because I felt unsure about it, but after seeing it again, I was like "Hell, why not?"!
It still has some flaws, but they're by far not as worse as the other ones before. And the file size is quite okay, too.
My conclusion: In the future I won't even DARE to think about making long animations like this again.. at least not with my current computer.
So that's the story behind it.


It started as a Contest Entry, but now it's a little Gift for griffsnuff :heart:
Hopefully you all enjoy it and thanks for creating such an amazing community, which keeps me motivated to keep on going.

I was also thinking about opening some Animation Commissions like these sooner or later, but I am not sure if people would be actually interested.
We will see ~

Holyanubias! Thanks so much!

And it would be actually great, if this clock could be a thing.
Although I think clocks like these are a bit creepy. ; A ;
But the Jazz-music in the background is quite nice. I can imagine how it plays in the background of this scenario as well. :D
Bob can see everything!! o 3 o
