trying to make a flash game but I do most my art in sai and photoshop, though when put into flash it goes all fuzzy, any way around that?

Photoshop is a raster-based drawing program.
Flash is a vector-based drawing program.

Vectors are based on math, so you can resize them without them getting fuzzy. Rasters will look fuzzy if imported into flash and resized - the only way to avoid it is to keep all art at its original size. I imagine using rasters in gaming will cause fuzziness as the program applies mathematical transformations to artwork to make the game function as you tell it to.

My recommendation is to do your drawing natively in Flash or in another vector-based program like Illustrator, Fireworks, or Inkscape.

I've brought Photoshop made backgrounds into Flash before. As long as they're sitting on the stage in the original resolution they're fine, as far as I was able to see.

hey all. I was wondering about animating ponies on Gimp. I have the layers set up and I just can't get them to merge and co-operate into a fully functional film. It actually flashes one single picture at me over and over again XD! I have been using gimp for 3 days and am importing my layers from my paint. Any advice here would be really great. Thanks in advance. :) I got nine layers of a short novice/beginner that I am doing. :)

Hi all. I've got a full voice cast and a few animators behind my 'studio' and a script written for our very first idea - My Little Pony: Friendship is Fire Safety. 

Story is the events following Twilight VS. Tirek and the destruction of Golden Oaks Library, a stormy day happens over Ponyville and eventually Twilight wants to teach the residents of the small village Fire Safety. Chaos breaks out when Rainbow Dash becomes bored. 

I need help with some more animators and storyboard-artists, we're good on music and voices I'll make a journal on my page linking everything you all need later so if anyone wants to contact me please note me or email me at thank you!

excuse me? I need some help with backgrounds. Normally when I do mlp animations I copy +paste bgs, and use them that way.. *Sigh* Obviously that is not a professional way to animate, but I don't know how to do any other way. Say for example, I have a house, in ponyville.  I wanna learn how to animate the ponies going behind stuff like the house to make it seem more realistic. can any pony here help me or make a tutorial for me?

If you're copying somebody else's backgrounds, it's usually a single layer. You need to build a background with multiple layers in order to move characters around objects like that.

If you use vectors to make a background, you could take somebody's tree asset, for example, and add it to the background you are using as a separate layer. Then your characters could go in front or behind it depending on how you arrange the layers.
