At this point I'm sure no one wants to go back and edit it cus he's already colored it. He'd have to make more frames and color those while making adjustments to accommodate all that. Oh godddd. Sorry, your comment was definitely valid, I just wanted to point it how much work it would be to go back and add all that in. If it was for a show or something then definitely, but even anime's now a days don't go back to fix a few seconds of iffy walking because they know it'll be absent from the eyes of the audience in a few seconds and none would be the wiser. Sooo, although it's not perfect this definitely needs to be applauded for the for the fact that it's so well done, so crisp, and so well colored, taking into account certain things as light and smoke and a burnt mark on the wall. It's amazing.
Sorry again, if this seems a bit bogus, I don't mean it in that way.
You mentioned that this was a pain is the ass. I assume that is was a pain in the ass because of how much time it took. So if you feel up to answering, how much time, approximately did this take to first: draw and secondly: color? I mean in hours. Like, 5-6 hours or what?
Flash is a program developed for symbol animation, not traditional animation. It's full of bugs (especially any version above CS3), the brush changes sizes when you zoom in and it's difficult to control it with any precision, the pencil tool is unusable, it crashes often, it's lacking in quite a few of the tools that make digital animation easier (like the camera), and exporting in any format besides .swf usually leads to issues.
Toonboom has relatively few bugs, working tools, a 3D camera, has only crashed on me one time since I started using it years ago, and can export in more formats without problem.
That said, there are things I like about flash, and I still animate in it from time to time. But nothing serious.
Alright, great. The reason I ask is because my friend and I have been animating for a little over a year now and it's been kind of a pain in the ass to animate with Flash. It's always been a pain especially since it crashes often, which is definitely something you were right as hell about. I just needed something easier with less issues and I think you solved that problem for me. It's strange cus I actually saw a youtube video of you showing your sketchbook to your art professor or something and I gotta tell you, your art put mine to shame, but not enough to make me quit art. Haha, so err....sorry to sound awkward, but thanks for that and for the information on toonboom, I'll most likely give that a try.
