I decided to do this just to work on my animating skills and to adapt to my Wacom tablet. Don't even try to figure the meaning of it, because I can't either. Well, Enjoy!

P.S. If anyone knows anything about compression, contact me.

See there? One of your first animations and your featured on the front page in Tom Fulps newspost. Good job christian, you got some great compliments by two great NG animators in these reviews. I love your frame by frame style and loved the winners dont use drugs hahah.

If you want to compress your movie, here are some useful tips.

__Compression Tips__

1.) Make the audio export quality about 30KBS. This dramatically decreases your file size.

2.) In publish settings, check mark the COMPRESS MOVIE option.

3.) Limit yourself on layers. Dont create a layer for every single movie clip, I usually only user about 3 layers for every movie I have!

4.) If your music doesnt need to be on time with the movie, but just as an ambience then stream it from an outside source. All you do is put some coding in a frame that plays the music from another website, into your swf. It only is 1KB. :) Ill give you the code if you want it.

__Things you can do to improve your movie easy and fast__

FILTERS. Add glowing effects, bevel, gradients, e.t.c to some parts of the movie and you can get some kickass effects that are easy to do. Remember i showed you that red glow effect in school? That took like 3 minutes.

BACKGROUND. Never use a white background unless you really need to. I usually use a nice black background with bright colors ontop. It looks really nice, especially for the frame by frame style you use.

MUSIC. That music kind of sucked hahaha. Choose some really nice ambient music from the NG audio portal. You have so far, but next time choose something you think the majority of the public will enjoy.

COCKS. Put cocks everywhere. Instant front page. :)

Good luck! PM me if you need any help or something.

Croberson responds:

Hey, thanks man(although I'm not so sure on the cocks idea). THE ADVICE IS HELPFUL. Oh yeah, I'd like that streaming code



Croberson responds:

Croberson responds:
