Well. Pivot is an easy tool to use for sprites.... I maake my animations in pivot since I started animating sprites.. but the quality of the old pivot was very bad when u upload it.. thats why the newest Pivot 4 is the clear and well upgraded pretty much alot... if u haven't seen my animation before go see it in my channel they are very..very.. bad.. lol.. well its up to you..

My first suggestion is to switch to flash, but if you wish to use Pivot, be my guest.

For your pivot work, being an ex-pivot user myself, I can give you a few tips.

Your sprite work here is very jumpy. They don't stand in one place and everything just jerks around. You repeat a lot of sequences, such as the tiger dashing past (don't know their names) that dude with the gray hair. Or when the same guy was attacking the white haired guy.

You also didn't put in many sprite effects and used drawn effects that looked very out of place. I'm all for using your own custom effects, but you should practice a little more before actually using them.

If pivot 4 is anything like pivot 3 beta, then you should have an onion skin feature right? Make sure you take your time to make sure your sprites aren't dancing all over the place. I'd also suggest trying not to repeat something happening for too long. because that tiger attack lasted for like, fourteen seconds. The sounds get repetitive and people start losing interest.

That's just my two sense, hope I helped.

you don't really need effects for an animation to work. they make it look nice, but that's it.

and yeah, what sxr said. alignment is probably the biggest thing you need to work on.

Huh? There's a pivot 4? Last I recall the last version of pibot (at least from the original creator Peter Bone) was pivot 3.1 beta before he stopped developing it.

Anywho I can also suggest as a former pivot user to move on to Flash for sprite animations.

@SXR - Yeah I know.. for the magic circle I made it on purpose but its
sucky im still a newb... anways.. oh yeah about the alignment... Ican
align there bodied mostly at the top only not the legs.. the ground is a
figure and I cant see an onion in there.. next time I'll find custom
background when I animate.. yep that was my mistake the snow tiger...
and those custom sprites that changed alot.. anyways thanks for the
suggestion!! The next battle will be good probably..

@Yeow: No,
Peter Bone developed Pivot 4 and it was pretty good.... I'll stick to
Pivot until I lost the hang of it and use flash... I have flash but I
dont really get how to animate in it.. and I wouldnt until I want to..

If you want my honest opinion, you should use flash.
We can help give better feedback (because almost everyone here animates in either flash or After Effects)
You can start by viewing some of the tutorials we have here https://www.thespritas.com/t184-how-to-sprite-animate-with-flash

@Sui- I do have Macromedia... The Reason I dont use it is because You can easily animate Sprites in Flash Without unpacking the sprites.. So I decided to Animate all of my unpacked Sprites and move to flash so my effort wouldnt waste...

@Blue22- I understand that its very easy but for now as a noob like me.. I'll just start with pivot...

This is where this argument ends, after this, his decision is his own.

I'll tell you this, unless you're planning on animating sprites FBF forever, then pivot is, I guess, a good bit of practice. But I'm an EX pivot user myself and everything I learned in pivot was completely useless to me when I started using flash.

Just because your a noob at flash does not mean not using it and using pivot will somehow make you better at it. My first completed flash was terrible but it was a start. Once you complete your very own flash movie, you can only get better.

I, as well as most animators on this site, suggest you use Macromedia flash 8 or Adobe Flash CS3. But as I said, this is where it ends, what you do now is up to you.

any other posts should be for pointing out anything he should improve on.
