Try this: after creating whatever artwork you need, select all in that layer, cou it (x) and paste it again. If the red dot appears in the layer list, it is optimized.

"Rabbit"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/filmnetwork/A11607040
"Rabbit" is an eery film, quite gory, and has won several awards. The whole animation could have been done in moho and is a good example of what is possible in cutout style.

"Red Tango" flash cartoon

A real good source for high quality animation is always http://www.cartoonbrew.com/. Today they featured http://www.tangoland.com/ which shows an excellent animation done in Flash - have a look, study the scenes and the breakdown of the characters, and learn!

Hm ... what's all the fuzz about? OK, so you can script Moho. You can even script essential functions and tweak them to your taste. That's great, and I'm sure there are a dozen people or so who really could use this kind of wizardry. There's also the small possibility that some script might be even ...

Just to clear that issue once and for all:

If you work on a computer and for screen/video/film, forget resolution and dpi. Just count pixels. The dimension of an image in pixels is all that counts.

I like it. It's just complex enough animation to fool the eye, but you kept it simple enough to not stretch your timeline. Cleverly done.

OK, I did some tests for myself. Result #1: Moho doesn't care about "resolution". http://www.slowtiger.de/examples/300_72.png The image I used was 400 x 400 px big, stored in 72 dpi and again in 300 dpi. Moho interpreted both correctly as 400 x 400 px, showing them at 72 dpi (the Moho film was set t...

I'm deeply impressed. This film already has a lot what tells a good film from a mediocre one: storytelling, storyboarding, clever editing, and animation only where it's needed ... Is it your first film? Of course you know best where you need to improve your skills. More drawing training, better use ...

Since I did similar stuff (but on a much smaller scale), I think I can guess how it was done: 1. Storyboard. A project like this can only be done with lots of planning. One has to know how many actors in which clothing and mask appear in which scene. Also the poses for the actors must be known befor...

I'm with Vern here. It's impossible to draw a line between hobbyists and professionals when you deal with a complex art like animation. Even if I, personally, could do without the scripting, there will be hundreds of people out there who just _like_ to dive into that. (And I need the scripts, too, b...

My POV about Moho goes like this: Moho is unique in its combination of tools. I'd like it to stay that way because I am quite happy about its abilities right now, and I can integrate Moho into my workflow comfortably. Moho is not, and shouldn't attempt to become: - a replacement for Flash - a single...

doppel: I suggest you take a look at Mirage ( http://www.bauhaussoftware.com ) which is marketed as "animation program" although it's just a tuned video paint program.

Ah, OK, I misunderstood. "exported flash files" for me sounds like something to be further worked with in Flash. Moho doesn't do symbols like flash, but there's this little indicator in your layer symbol: as long as the red dot appears, this layer will be a symbol in the final .swf file. In order to...

hm, why bother? If you want to export to flash anyway, you should do the text portion of your work there as well, because it is much easier to do there.
