So if we create a whole animation solo, why do we need to make abide by the specs given. If we've done it ourselves, then wouldn't we not use our own specs? This is where I am confused. Could you please explain?
Why the specs are in place:
Format Cs5 - so that I can compile everyone's animations into one project (I do not have Cs6... however Cs6 files can be converted down)
Stage size - used to make all animations the same size (if you use a different size then there shall be large blank boarders around the animation)
FPS - used to make all the animations the same speed (if a different fps is used then there shall be issues with timing and such, eg it may end up faster or slower in the final collab than you planned)
actionscript 2 - allows all the code to work if there is any used
background color - I shall be using the default background color (for example if you change the stage color to black but dont put any other background in your layers then in the final product the black shall be turned to white)
all in all, it the specs are there to make sure that everyone's animations are able to run smoothly together.
