Stumped for an idea, I borrowed one from one of my favorite comics.

Jughead and Friends Digest #18

The comic is Copyright 2007 by Archie Comic Publications Inc.

I hope I don't get sued.

Your voiceovers are great in this RD, and the comic book format seems to translate to moviestorm really well.
Interesting idea!

Thanks for the compliment!

I recorded the dialogue in Moviestorm first. I re-recorded in my audio software and saved the file in the Dialogue folder. Then I used the 'redo dialogue' to get to the open file window and replaced the original with the new.

My micropohone head is now covered in about five layers of cheesecloth. I get no more plosives (pops) in the recording. It looks funky with the cheesecloth and the clothes pin, but it works very well.

I started this movie back in v1.4, but put it on hold until the Pioneer Pack came along.

I discovered that if you have ambient sound and render the camera clips, the audio of the ambient sound starts and stops. I had to redo them all with NO ambient sound.
I opened the ambient sound file as an additional audio track in my editing software. Voila! A smooth un-interrupted room sound.

Good idea to use the comic strips for ideas. And great advice on sound. Really enjoyed this film.

Now I'm digging out my old collection of Rick O'Shay and Hipshot comics - oh wait, I need Western assets to do that. Ah well - looking to the future.

Great movie revdoug and nice info on your recording, but instead of five layers of cheese cloth, I have found this tutorial on how to make a pop filter for your microphone you might find useful if your the handyman type http://www.jakeludin...pop_screen.html or this one also http://www.deansabat.../2005/08/21/67/

Another way to avoid mike pops...

The most explosive letter to pronounce (in case anyone hasn't already guessed) is 'P.' Simply brounounce it as a 'B' and you will be bleased with the result. It's almost impossible to tell the difference.

That's quite a a neat translation of the comic as a storyboard.

Although maybe a little confusing in places, as the comic seems to pay little regard for the line, and results in your edit crossing the line a couple of times.

Thanks for the nice comments.

I realized the scenes were crossed up as I was placing the actors on the set. My main objective was to attempt to re-create the panels as drawn.

I wish I had the resources to animate a "Spy VS. Spy" comic from Mad magazine. I love that strip.
