Earlier this evening a video on Deviant Art cropped up called “MLP – Making Raw Footage in 4 Minutes” created by an animator nicked Leopardpawz. The video itself is a 4-minute super speed run in the creation of a scene with Rainbow Dash on some clouds, but the video is a touch too quick for some people to catch any tips or tricks (download, grab video player with slow mo or step motion, …, profit???). But Leopardpawz has also said that there will be some actual detailed tutorials on this stuff; this video was just a speed run of fun.
Update 5/2: Unfortunately there was some controversy over this video, namely the way Equestria Daily presented it (in their traditional vague way). Many people including ourselves thought that the video was being claimed as something created by a member of the DHX staff, but this is untrue. It will be noted that Leopardpawz did not claim to be a member of DHX, nor did Equestria Daily.
Leopardpawz over on Deviant Art has released a really awesome time lapse video showing off the creation of a raw scene from Friendship is Magic. It’s pretty crazy how much actually goes into a single scene, and defenitly worth a watch! Head on over to his page here and check it out! —EqD
In general the phrasing “raw scene from Friendship is Magic” was probably the key point to the confusion. This is what happens in the off season, and we’re only 14 days in. I do suggest grabbing some popcorn cause this is definitely going to be an interesting summer.
You can watch the video here on Leopardpawz’s DeviantArt, or check out the embed after the page break.
