Is It Now Possible To Make Custom Animations In Hopscotch?


#1

Even though I don’t have the subscription, I have been thinking about being able to make custom animations of your own characters.
How To Do It-
First, you need the subscription. Then, when you have that you need to create your own character. I reccomend you make it simple, because it is already pretty hard to animate on HS. Now set that as an object. Now use a wait Block, and then use the Set Image block again to draw the same character, but in a different position. The reason why I would reccomend doing this is because if you have a complicated character it can change a lot. Keep repeating this and eventually you can loop it, maybe make a character walking, and he moves around the screen by your finger. Maybe you could make a game out of it!
Thanks for reading! I still haven’t seen this been done on HS before. If you are able to make an animation please share it on this topic!

That’s a nice idea.

I would be more impressed if it was done with no images though :D


#3

Yeah, that would be cool, but I don’t see how it is possible unless if you use dynamic Trail art or shapes


#4

You could also use pixel art, either using cloned squares or clones that redraw the pixelart quickly, or using Unicode text pixelart (see this topic)


#5

Yeah, I guess you could, but pixel art using trails is a form of Trail art…but yeah I have used Unicode


#6

Check Dino run my be. See the Dino, it is possible.

I have already done it in many circumstances. I think you did too.


#7

I see where you’re coming from. But I think it depends on that you’re trying to achieve. Custom animations using pixel art or dynamic trials could be a cool project in of themselves.

However, using Set Image, animated custom characters can be created easily and more importantly, efficiently. So these characters can be a small component of a much larger project without consuming too many objects and without creating too much load (read lag) on the Player.


#8

Some people complain that because it is so easy they will never learn how to code dynamic Trail art.


#9

Weren’t you doing one with really really small sprites? I can’t find the gif you posted.

I found it:


And that super complex gif.

Yes, I think that this is probably possible and it would be really cool. It would be even cooler if it would be made without images though, like @CreationsOfaNoob said.
