    awesome animations for flash

    I was browsing trough templatemonster.com out of curiosity and found this template. http://www.templatemonster.com/flash...ates/5393.html I know it uses flash, but how was the animation created? I would love to get into that type of designing. can anyone help me?

    Well, I can't be bothered waiting for that flash to download - I'm on dialup and in the space of 1 minute it only got to 9% - totally unnacceptable.

    Anyway, if it is jaw droppingly good, like http://tokyoplastic.com/ or http://neostream.com/ it was probably done with Swift 3D or Discreet Plasma. I've used both programs briefly and I much prefer Discreet Plasma for a few reasons:
    a) Discreet make 3D Max, which is currently at version 6. They know their s*** when it comes to animation packages.
    b) Discreet Plasma is essentially a stripped down version of 3D Max, which means many tutorials that are aimed at 3D Max can be converted to Plasma (to a degree...)
    c) Swift 3D has the worst interface of any program of its type that I have used.

    hth.

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    hmm, yeah it was kinda slow, but it is jaw dropping, I actually looked more into it and saw that it includes .max files, so it may use 3d studio max, I was looking into it, but if your saying that there is a diffrent version by the same people I will compare both and see the diffrence. (I don't like swift at all )
    Thanks

    Unhappy

    Oh, that sucks! Plasma had native output of SWF, something that Max doesn't...

    Ironically, I just saw a plugin for Max that Maccentral.com was telling about which exports vector information to flash and ai files... but that may not be the full rendering, just the wireframes!

    hmm, I'm going to check that plugin out, I have been playing arround with the trial for 3d max 6 and love it very much, I was thinking of using image sequences to use them in flash, but a plugin would be much more helpful.

    Took me less than 10 seconds to download the thing and I only have High Speed Classic (1 step above Dialup).

    Vector output would be best -- image sequence might be huge in file size.
