I started working on this animation back in 2009, but my computer crashed and I lost the ability to edit any of the flash files. Luckily, I was able to salvage some swf files and convert them to HD, and then edit everything together in good old Final Cut Pro 7. Isn't it sad that flash is kinda dead? As I was converting everything for this animation, I started to realize that 2008/2009 was really the height of flash. Now we're just going backwards, and Apple not adopting flash has set everything back quite a bit.
I was creating a DVD/Blu-ray recently, and I suddenly realized how old-fashioned DVD's are now. They're like floppy disks, they're useless. So I am creating a DVD menu, and I think to myself, what is the point? So someone can watch in 480p? It's pointless. Blu-ray is nearing pointlessness too, although thankfully it's in HD so you don't have to decrease resolution to create it. After 4K, what is the point? I don't want to animate past 4k, that's too much fucking detail. The render time for a 3d animation in 4k must be fucking insane... it already is at 1080p. Maybe Google's quantum computers can speed up rendering before they take over the world.
What was I talking about? Oh yeah, this animation... it was based on a series of levels I did in Little Big Planet. The storyline is much different from the series now. I wish I could go back and clean up a lot of the artwork, but like I said, the flash files are corrupted. I had high hopes for this project, I think there's a lot of passion in it, I bit off way more than I could chew. Check out Little Big Apocalypse: Lost Episode!
