It turns out like this:

No reaper. I have tried everything, but it just won't let me export the image of the grim reaper on a separate layer. Can you draw the silhouette of the grim reaper?

Like I said, the loops are just a joke. I make them in between boring parts of animating. Usually within 5 minutes.

Still better than Amaranthus. Don't let him decide ey!

Here is the menu so far:

Will add an animated reaper in the background hopefully...

- Does anyone think they could make a nicer looking logo for it?

Also if you're part of this collab you should create a small image for your place in the scrolling set of credits at the bottom of the menu (if you don't want to then one shall be provided for you)

No updates on progress so far? Guess I'll start then.
After two and a half hours of work, I have finally managed to finish the lip sync for this little vermin. The characters he may look familiar with are those ghost things from Pac-Man and Bloo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

" All you need to create for this project is a Halloween themed animation (this can be done either solo or with a group). "

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?

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.

I've also been assigned the dutiful task of creating an aesthetically peeling preloader, in the works.

You wouldn't happen to need some creepy ambient stuff for this would ya? I've got a bit of time and could probably lend a hand.

Music? Yeah, that could be cool! It'll have to be a really small file though since it's the preloader, a loop preferably. Let me know if you have/make something fitting! If you do interface sounds too, some kind of digital scream/creak-ish thing (not too loud) for when the loading's finished would also be nice. If not I'll find something. Thanks for the offer!

do you think you would be able to get it down to about one or two minutes?
there is a 20 MB limit to the swf files we're allowed to upload... i'm slightly worried about exceeding that
however I think we may be able to use more space if I contact one of the site mods (will do that as soon as possible)
