Flash Dance

Doodled up this rough dance party in Flash to show my class some rotoscope ideas. Here’s a preview, class! If this isn’t showing up in your browser, apologies. Flash used to be so great to use on websites, now it is a struggle just to get it to show up. I copied code directly off of Adobe’s own knowledge base article, and while it worked in Safari, it didn’t work in Firefox. When Adobe can’t even embed it’s own product properly, you know there is trouble. I used a suggestion in the comments of the article and changed the “href” to “src” and then it showed in Safari and Firefox. It’s probably just a blank white box in Explorer.

Anyway, Flash still is a usable animation tool in a production pipeline, as long as you export out of it early on enough.
