This one seems tough. Honestly, a thought crossed my mind to use Maya 'cause I can get this out in less than 20 minutes that way, but that'd be cheating wouldn't it?

I think that would defy the purpose to let the computer do the animation, yes :P

can't argue its efficiency :c

Nice fire. will come up with something handdrawn soon...

Finally summoned up the willpower to do the frog leap.

first version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0Eicy0_llE

But of course! it looked jerky because I wasn't considering the camera's acceleration. how could I forget something so simple hahaa.

Mine's moving rather quickly as well.

It's got all these points on it like I'm manipulating the vectors though. I dunno what's going on with that.

Them little dots is called sparks. Fire has sparks, right?

Your software is using the "make art" feature some of my clients think I have on my computer somewheres.

Lol. I really wish it wouldn't, that "make art" feature isn't nearly as cool as it sounds. It never makes the art I want it to make. This isn't the first time I've had this problem, but I still can't figure it out.

Hoshi, I'm not sure if you get this but the simplicity of your fire is too complicated. Especially in animation you can't just go for something that resembles a fire; you have to actively seek the most efficient representation. The plentitude of obsolete bits of vector does no good.

As for the annoying dots. The default flash export into gif is totally bad. You may try to create a gif (or jpg) sequence instead and put it together in a different, more suitable program.

I'm afraid I don't quite know what you mean. I understand the last bit that you should try and be as efficient as possible, but not how my fire is too complicated. Is it because it's not simply a silhouette like Cruiser's? I mean, looking at it now compared to last night when I did it, yeah, I'd like to redo it because I know I can do better, but to me it already seem rather simple. Could you perhaps explain more how it's too complicated though?

Dont worry Hoshi, my fire has also been pissing me off a bit, so I'm inclined to retry it again.

As part of the preparation I came upon this site: http://flashfx.blogspot.com/search/label/Reference
You might find it useful as well

What I meant was that your drawing uses too many anchor points for what it is. Remember that every additional anchor point can easily become a tremendous pain in the attic. Thus, the utter desperation in the making process won't get its satisfaction in the end product.

Are we still all on board for this, or is it just gonna die?

Also, thanks for the explanation, RL. I get what you mean now.

Lip sync to anything? I've got an idea.
