Joe Bob’s Screentest

Below you will see my first use of flash and my first at­tempt at stop an­i­ma­tion. The pic­ture tak­ing took about 15 min­utes, but fig­ur­ing out the Flash in­ter­face took me a bit longer, es­pe­cial­ly since I couldn’t use the tu­to­ri­als. This prob­a­bly took me two hours all told, but I’m still heart­ened by the rel­a­tive ease with which it came to­geth­er. Perhaps there will be more ad­ven­tures with Joe Bob in the fu­ture.

  1. I re­al­ly got­ta fig­ure out how to make the file­size small­er. Flash us­es a take on the “sprite” idea from way back in the ear­ly days of gam­ing, but with each from be­ing a unique im­age, I don’t think that is go­ing to work for me. I might just have to dis­trib­ute stuff via YouSendIt.

  2. Yea, Flash wasn’t re­al­ly made for frame-by-frame an­i­ma­tion (though you can ob­vi­ous­ly do it). It ex­cels more at tween­ing (which will al­so keep your file sizes down, but again, doesn’t work for what it looks like you’re do­ing).

  3. I might scrounge up some de­cent film edit­ing soft­ware for the PC, if there is such a thing. I’m on­ly wor­ried about file size for band­width is­sues.
