Beginner: Let’s Make a Fucking Movie

Alright FilmMaker, today is the day you stop telling people about your animations

and you actually get to show them.

Are you fucking ready?

That’s the attitude.

Today we’re going to learn how to make a fucking movie.

It’s very fucking easy.

Open Processing.

Copy, Paste, Read and Run.

//Import this library,
//no need to download,
//just call it.

import processing.video.*;

//Create your movie maker object.

MovieMaker mm;

//Declare our font
PFont font;

int frameCounter;

void setup()
{
//We’ll use the frameCounter to switch our background
//make it blink.
frameCounter=0;

//We’ll use 1024,720
//pretty standard
size(1024,720);
//Smooth edges.
smooth();
//Declare our font. You need to create with Tools>CreateFont.

//Remember to memorize your font name.
font = loadFont(“yuka120.vlw”);

//Initialize the movie make object.
mm = new MovieMaker(this, width, height, “nameOfMyMovie.mov”, 20,  MovieMaker.RAW, MovieMaker.MEDIUM);
}

void draw()
{
if(frameCounter <=10)
{
frameCounter++;
//Creme background every 10 frames
background(250,255,224);
}
if(frameCounter > 10)
{
frameCounter++;
//Dark but not black every 10 more
background(5);
}

//Let’s color our font creme.
//Use Tool>> Color selector
fill(250,255,224);

//Set our font to 120

textFont(font,120);

//Place the text
text(“Let’s Make”,80,height/2);
text(“a fucking”,50,height/2+140);
text(“movie”,120,height/2+280);

//Add a frame to the movie every loop

mm.addFrame();

if(frameCounter > 20)
{
//reset the background counter.
frameCounter = 0;
}
}

void keyPressed() {
//Press f as in ffffuuuu; the movie will stop and the program will exit.
if (key == ‘f’) {
mm.finish();
}
exit();
}

You should get something like this:

But in a .mov in your folder (Apple+K)

With every second of film weighting about 150 Megas on LOSSLESS.

But, how can I determine the quality of my video?
