2/13 EDIT: Alright! Finally intalled Flash (CS4) onto my computer, so I decided to do a quick test run with something I already had. Turned out a bit better than the previous version, at least with speed.

older Youtube animation can be found here; sketch: [link] and here; detail: [link]

First version was more a test than anything else. Drew it on openCanvas, then put it together on Windows Movie Maker (didn't have flash or anything, at least not yet). Took about 6-7 hours with 32 frames in one cycle.

Can u tell me how to make a animation?

1. Started with drawing each frame in Photoshop (any program with a layer system will work just as well). I'd draw a frame, lower the layer opacity, then draw the next frame on a new layer by using the previous layer as a reference; trace what needs to stay the same, move what needs moving. Rinse & Repeat until I reached the end.
2. Saved each layer as it's own jpg/png/whatever, numbering them with 001, 002, 003, etc. into their own separate folder. Putting the zero's in front garuantees they stay in order, instead of going 1, 10, 11, 12...2, 20, 21, etc.
3. Then in Adobe Flash CS4, I had it import the images as a sequence which put them in order on the timeline depending on how I numbered them. After that it was just fiddling with the framerate until I was happy with the speed, and exporting as a .swf file that could be uploaded to the web.

And that's how I made this animation, and any others afterwards, though it's been a very long time since. I'm sorry if it's too program specific to be of any help, but I hope it does.

Thanks. :) It wasn't a site. Combination of Photoshop (for the image frames) and Flash (to put it all together).

Thanks! Glad you like it so much.

Just so long as you provide a link to the original, sure. Take a crack at it. :) I'm certainly never going to get around to doing something like that. Let me know when it's done, I'd love to see it. :D There anything you need in order to color it?
