I was PMing Yukio for tips on this, but i never thought to put it in here! Its my first time using flash, and it wanted the idea of the dragon and phoenix mirror rolling together to meet in the middle to reveal my Shenmue desigend text of "Irelands Biggest Shenmue Fan", but this is as far as i have gotten:
I see its a very tepremental process, since i have been encountering problems throughout, just trying to make the damn mirrors spin (firstly the gif lost its quality, then the mirrors themselves developed a ragged edge whilst in motion)
I have also tried Flash 8 and CE4, and id love to actually get some at Adobe and ask them why is it so damn hard to get a transparent background on opening
a new gif project!! Oh and also why its not an easy process to merge layers! Its as if those jobs are too easy to do, and they deliberately made them harder to use with the interface! I will hopefully get to grips with Flash 8 and take it from there. I have some ideas for Shemue flash projects so i might just leave the above gif as it is (i wanted to go on and try to achieve what i originally wanted it to achieve, but now i just dont know.
