a miracle just happened. it turns out that i accidently saved a seperate copy of the finished file in a seperate folder! so all the others that crashed and became corrupted in mid render werent my only ones.
the only thing im mad about now isn all the time wasted on something that shouldve been simpler thatn what it was. but im glad that i was able to upload the flash file instead of that horrible gif that moved 1frame per second.
but yes this is my third try at animation. i think it looks a lil smoother but only because the actual characters arent moving. its just a fancy slide show but still im glad i was able to do it.
