Animation has changed a lot since this group started. Here's a list of what is new!

:bulletblue: Folders are updated to make sense for people who don't animate with Flash. "Short Toons" that tell a story but aren't long enough to be "Films" are separated out, so you don't have to go through a million 2 second animations to find an actual cartoon. The 2 second animations now go in "2D Loops."

:bulletblue: Featured folder is updated with what is worthy of being featured considering how much better everyone is at animating these days.

:bulletblue: Removed a lot of old art, broken links, etc. Looking through the galleries will be more fun now.

:bulletorange: When you submit art, show accurate puppets will be judged at a higher standard. All this means is that basic animations like talking or walking using somebody else's puppets (or yours, if they are show accurate) will probably be rejected.

:bulletorange: If you submit multiple pieces of art with different OCs but the same animation cycle, some will be accepted as samples and the rest rejected. So if you do animation commissions and reuse the same base every time, don't fret if they start getting rejected. This is just to avoid group gallery clutter.

I'm guessing, that "2D Loops non-GIF" folder is for looped flash animations, but submitions to it are blocked

That would explain why nothing new has come in this weekend. It should be working now.

Quick question: I'm an animator but I do not use flash, do I upload my cycles to the "Flash animations" folder?

Quick question: a bit confused on if After Effects plays any role in post processing for Flash animations (esp. pony videos)?

Or is it mostly getting everything just right in Flash, exporting the SWF, and then Swivel'ing it to a movie format?

I don't use Swivel. I use AE to do camera effects just because it's easier and I add special effects and titling that way sometimes anyway.

Wait. So how do you convert your SWF animation to, say, a FLV or AVI?

SWFs import directly into AE.
