hehehehe that was really neat! Have you ever seen this site? HotWired - Animation Express (http://hotwired.lycos.com/animation/)
Loads of great Flash movies. You should submit yours, they'll probably take it... they might even pay you. $$$
Go check out "Pat This Cat" It's my all time fave, along with the one about the Snail Detective (I forget that one's name)
I've got an idea I want to do for a flash movie but problem is it's been in my head for about a year or 2 and I'm not sure if it's funny anymore... people I told it to laughed back then but .. well.. I guess I've been dwelling on it too long :D
Eagerly awaiting your next Feature Film :D :)

...Animation Express, Sherville. I just submitted to them about an hour ago. When I get better at this Flash stuff, I'll try to get something at Atom Films.

If the idea you had a coupla years ago was funny then, it's probably still funny now. Give it a shot and see what happens. I spent about 60 hours on my little 35-second "film." That was because I didn't know beans about Flash when I started. I learned some things along the way, though. The next one should go faster.

If you're gonna do sound effects and voices in your movie, I'd strongly recommend a shareware program called GoldWave for recording and manipulating WAV files. I think the url is www.goldwave.com , strangely enough.

Thanks for checking out the flick. When you get yours done, let me see it.

Thanks for that link, I have Cool Edit (http://www.cooledit.com) but it doesn't accept MP3's so I have to keep converting them in Winamp... :)

Thanks, Digi. Flash is fun...once you start to get the hang of it.

Sherville. I don't see any need to convert from or to MP3. I did all my noises in GoldWave, saved them as WAVs, then imported them into Flash 5.0. Once I "published" the swf file, those WAVs had been shrunk to about 10% of their original size. Maybe Flash converts them to MP3 format for you. I dunno. All I know is they sounded just like the original WAV files and they didn't take up much space.

A good example: I did an earlier test Flash movie that included a large WAV file. It was over a megabyte. Once I published the swf file, the swf file was only about 170k. That included the big WAV file and the animation and backgrounds, too. So Flash is pretty efficient in squeezing WAV files down.
