This isn't a full animation or anything, not that my last one was either, but this is my first foray into Flash animation. Actually this is part of an assignment for class that I decided to twist into pony. At that, I'm super lacking in Flash knowledge, so I know that parts of this look really unappealing -- just don't look at it too hard, hahahah. Hopefully I'll learn to do everything better as my class goes on.

Uh, I'm not even sure I wanna post this or whether er not it'll work, or look good, but I'm sorta just postin' this to keep myself goin'. First all nighter of the semester, an' I still got a bit more to do on it an' only four hours left. Woooh!

Uh, if the colors or resolutions or whatevers're messy, sorry fer that, dunno really how to optimize Flash's settings fer exportin'. XD

Edit: Yup, framerate's super slow, Dash wasn't meant fer cruisin' speed. Aw well.

Edit: Okay, so, replaced it with the .swf, I think this'll work? I guess I'll find out. Hahah. (later) Aw, there's some weird little artifacts or somethin' happening. Aw well, don't feel like messin' with this too much more, haw. On to other things. XD

Dude, she's super nice and helpful. I'm sure if you wrote a nice note to her and showed her what you've got she'd be totally happy to give you some tips! You could at least try it...? :nod:

I mean, I'd love to! I just don't have any specific questions, ya know? An' I'd hate to just send a message, like, "Hi, I'm learnin' flash, an' yer awesome, an' TELL ME EVERYTHING D:" XD

Iunno, maybe, maybe if I run into somethin' I'm curious about er somethin'. But I mean, I'd hate to not ask if she does have knowledge that could really help me... Hahah, "Iunno" pretty much sums up my feelin's about this.

Aww the finished product is going to be so epic I imagine. Now I am excited to see it in like......an hour or so. Glad to see it was an all nighter well spent! The only thing that looks wonky is the downbeat of the wing -- not the motion but where it gets all deformed like. But the mane looks epic ;)

It looks better when it's not running awkwardly at 10 fps, hahahah. An' it's also my first foray with, like, drawn motion/speed lines kinda thing. I can see how it'd be cool I got better. XD

Also, I'm done already, it's kinda lame, and I feel bad for endlessly zapping Rainbow. XD There's no parachute. Not enough time for that, hahahah.

Oh god! Zapped Rainbow dash makes me cringe....it's so sad.... Still it's a pretty nice piece of animation work XD. It does look a lot better moving faster ^^

She's commanding the storms to strike her down so she may overcome and be stronger. Not sad at all! :D

Haw, hopefully I'll learn better -- the entire class is a flash class, so, yeh. I think I like it a lot actually! Which I didn't expect. It's still a pain to draw in, but I'm sure it gets better with time, hahah.

Still tryin' to figure out how they build the characters on the show -- bein' able to reproduce show-like-quality flash would be really cool! XD

I'm trying to do some basic animation but haven't found a good tutorial yet

I've used flash like four times, not really much of an expert :D

Hahah, uh, 'coz I'm a newbie. XD

How do you mean though? Like, export it as a flash film? Can I set it to loop like that? I'm just dippin' my toes into the program, an' it's feelin' chilly. XD Any advice or tips would be hugely appreciated!

No. Use adobe flash. It's all about sumbols and vector grafic.

Oh, hahah, this was made in Flash. Exported as a gif, haw. I'm learnin' it right now, uh, it's a little frustrating, but I'm still learning. I do like it though! XD

If you upload the .swf does it loop? Or do you have to set that setting in Flash?

ctrl+ enter in flash. And yes, it will loop
