Hello Guys,

I have a doubt whether a particular animation is  a 3d or 2d animation.  Just see this video from time frame  0:30 and watch the character who is firing.  I feel it's 2d and done either in sprite animation or skeletal animation (using spine etc).   What you guys think about it?

I want to achieve this animation using  2d skeletal animation in Unity but having problem while rotating the character around the fixed point ( hip part of the character).

This was done the same way. It's a 2D skeletal animation made in engine. No need for external software for something this simple.

The character was drawn from a almost top down angle, so the whole character just turns.

Do you think there were multiple images used depending on the angle? If so which are the parts mainly to consider?

I think its same image no extras added, Im working on animations on my game in Unity now, and I can say you can get same effect inside unity animator, and its 2d

Yes. I did a breakdown for you.

Angle.jpg.bdfe970fdc9ed0496292866893de726f.jpg

By looking at the video we can see there are 5 points where the images are changing. That is why the last image looks so wrong.

The character is made of: Head image, Body image, BackPack image, Left arm image, Right arm image, Left leg image, Right leg image. There also is a animated band but it is just attached to the head.

The objects are drawn from a top down view so that little change is needed to each. Mostly looks like the artist was using a perspective tool and filling in details. The arms and legs are just rotated.

The Head, body and backpack changes. The arms and legs remain the same but are mostly hidden.

 

Hope this helps.

      FES Retro Game Framework is now available on the Unity Asset Store for your kind consideration!
      FES was born when I set out to start a retro pixel game project. I was looking around for an engine to try next. I tried a number of things, from GameMaker, to Fantasy Consoles, to MonoGame and Godot and then ended up back at Unity. Unity is just unbeatable in it's cross-platform support, and ease of deployment, but it sure as heck gets in the way of proper retro pixel games!
      So I poured over the Unity pipeline and found the lowest levels I could tie into and bring up a new retro game engine inside of Unity, but with a completely different source-code-only, classic game-loop retro blitting and bleeping API. Months of polishing and tweaking later I ended up with FES.
      Some FES features:
      Pixel perfect rendering RGB and Indexed color mode, with palette swapping support Primitive shape rendering, lines, rectangles, ellipses, pixels Multi-layered tilemaps with TMX file support Offscreen rendering Text rendering, with text alignment, overflow settings, and custom pixel font support Clipping Sound and Music APIs Simplified Input handling Wide pixel support (think Atari 2600) Post processing and transition effects, such as scanlines, screen wipes, screen shake, fade, pixelate and more Deploy to all Unity supported platforms I've put in lots of hours into a very detail documentation, you can flip through it here to get an better glimpse at the features and general overview: http://www.pixeltrollgames.com/fes/docs/index.html
      FES is carefully designed and well optimized (see live stress test demo below). Internally it uses batching, it chunks tilemaps, is careful about memory allocations, and tries to be smart about any heavy operations.
      Please have a quick look at the screenshots and live demos below and let me know what you think! I'd love to hear some opinions, feedback and questions!
      I hope I've tickled your retro feels!

      Yasss!!! My first Unity3d game is on the App Store and Google Play.
      Download please! About 30 minutes to get through 5 missions.
      Let me know what you guys think.
      Thanks a bunch

      For those doing promotional videos for their games we have released a video plugin that allows you to add glow, aka blooming, as a post effect in your video pipeline. The plugin is an OpenFX plugin that works in video editing software such as Nuke, Catalyst Edit, Natron or any other OpenFX compatible host software.
      The blooming filter allows you to set the threshold intensities that you want affected by the glow. You can also color tint the glow or make it anisotropic for stretched glow effects typically used for really bright intensity light streaks.
      Sample of an image before the blooming effect is applied:

      Image after blooming has been applied:

      You can find out more about this plugin on the Genifect OpenFX plugin suite page.
