Click me. Or I kill you. With a spork.

I swear to god if any of you hate just becuase of ponies it I will murder you.

I spent 10 1/2 hours on this, gave myself terrible back pain from the position I was sitting in, had to move ONE BY ONE literally over 100 thousand frames, and had to listen to that song more than 50 times over and over.

AND IT STILL ISN'T COMPLETED! o7rww.jpg

See those little squares?

Those are frames, that's only about 1-2% of them visible there.

I had to move each one individually.

You all better enjoy this.

I f***ing mean it. dNltC.jpg

D8 Why? Use Movie Clips and/or graphics & Classic Tweens and/or Motion Tweens.

What you said. Yes I have used flash before so I know about this stuff. Also, your using them as bitmaps? I usually like to put images as graphic and then "trace bitmap" (assuming you know the right properties for this).

Gifs are imported as frame by frame bitmaps.

I'm pissed mainly becuase I painstakingly made those images gifs to avoid frame by frame work, then flash goes "NOPE" and screws me.

I had no choice.

The background, foreground, and a few other assets are set as motion tweens.

CS5 Flash, I love you, but why do you do this to me? LWZja.jpg

I updated the animation, added somewhere around 6-8 new scenes. I think I'm done for the day.

Oh and the more stuff I add, the glitchier the animation gets, I have to manually fix the problems.

I need to find a way to import more things under new names so they wont accidentally override each other.

I have around 700 separate little bitmap images for each frame for each pony. If one gets messed up I have to sift through EVERYTHING to find it.

Already had to do this a couple times and re-import some frames for DR.Whoof and Trixie.

IF YOU SEE ANY WEIRD GLITCHES PLEASE TELL ME.

I noticed in the very start, Derpy flashes to another sprite for a split second, this is unfixable sadly. Nothing I can do.

I have 3 character scenes left to do, then I need to come up with an ending.

Pony : Stage

DJ-PON-3: Some kinda place that has neon colors.

Photofinish:Probabaly that Sonic stage with all the casinos 'n' s***. No, scratch that, Crystal-Man's stage from Mega-Man5

Lyra: Undecided

Ending: Undecided.

Oh and, the Space-Core has a cameo.

If you don't know what that means then move along.

No, seriously. Are you this same catman? I only ask because that would be quite a coincidence if so.

Although... it would be a fairly large coincidence if you weren't as well.

Nope, not me AT ALL.

Cat-Man was some super hero I made up in elementary school, like 3rd grade.

I made up "CatManComixINC" and any account of mine named CatManMovies is from a long time ago and I never felt like updating to an all new account.

My youtube is also catmanmovies.

I want a new youtube channel name so bad, but my current one has over 50 something subscribers from over 6-7 years of existence, and I don't want to resubscribe to everyone I'm subbed to.

Same with my deviant art, but I REALLY don't want to re-post everything I have up there.

Also, I accidentally hit that "thanks" button instead of reply.

Were those always there?

I think that either someone beat you to it, or that's something you made.

I know, when I was like 7 I googled cat man and was pissed as hell to see that.

I though I was being original. xD

I was an idiot.

Do you use v-cam? It is a really, REALLY useful when animating.

I have freaking Adobe Flash CS5 Pro Holy Bawls In A Soup-Can Bat-Man edition.

I don't need anything else.

Also the real MLP cartoon was made with this exact program.

And Family Guy.

And South Park.

And ALOT ELSE.

V-cam is something you use IN flash so you do less tweens.

Really? Cool.
