You're remaking the Karnage Incident?! AWESOME! That was one of my fave flashes when I was in highschool, though Iv'e gotta say I liekd the music you used for the deviantart version better then what you used for newgrounds.
I would think so, yes. Not to mention keeping all the art correct for the sequencing (poses, effects, etc) since if the art's even off by a hair for one frame, all the frames following it could be ruined; since I imagine the art for the next frame relies on what went on in the previous frame to some extent.
well. the character animation was mostly tweened, so I only need to make sure the keyframes for the next pose reflects the movement of the character and due to the simplicity of their body form, they are mostly made up of jagged lumps of ovalish shapes for the body and arms.
so basically just making use of the tweens to jump from one keyframe to the next without drawing any inbetween frames did cut out a bulk of the work and somewhat still achieve the effect of inbetweening.
Wow, that's a neat trick. I'll have to remember that when I start animating. Ever do any work with skeletal frames? As it is now, each individual pivot point has to be moved independently, for each pose, frame-by-frame. Unless of course the poses are stored in the program memory, then I could just sync them in.
All of this is moot at the moment, though, as I don't have any good rendering software (and I royally suck at Blender. And by 'royally suck' I mean ROYALLY SUCK). I have so many damn Transformer ideas clogging up my brain case, that it's driving me nuts. And I get new ones all the damn time.
