Please remember .... longer animated blings (those with more frames) will take a little longer to do than those with lesser frames.
Today, I am playing around, doing a "Mystery Battle" in one of my groups on CafeMom. I will show you how to accomplish the same thing with any animated design as I am with this one.
First, create your design by whomever's tutorial you are following. For my banner design , I only had six layers to contend with, since it was a no scraps tutorial.
To get this back into PDN, you will have to copy EACH individual frame from AS3 back to PDN. Your first layer is ALWAYS "Paste in to New Image" but all other layers will be as shown below:
Once you have all frames added back to Paint.Net, rename your tag and save in *psd form.
Making sure your very TOP layer is highlighted, do as shown below:
Simply X out of your design once it is all in AS3. Do NOT save or you will LOSE all of your layers and your saved animation will no longer be usable.
Click on your first layer and then hit shift + z. This will add your optimization settings to your design.
Upload to Photobucket and enjoy!
