Question

Does anyone know how to add music to animation in Flash? I can try to figure it out tomorrow, but I was just wondering if the song file had to be in mp3 format. If I want to put music to it should I just bring the song I want on a CD or can I email to myself as an mp3? Thanks!

photoshop tutorial

here's the animation tutorial for photoshop. He starts with all his layers already in photoshop but I'm assuming you all know how to paste objects (or sketches) into new layers

Joanna Quinn: "Dreams and Desires"

I remember seeing this at the Walker last winter and it has resurfaced. It's a brilliant animation and I thought I'd share it with you guys. The artist, Joanna Quinn, illustrated the animation and brought it to life with After Effects.

This isn't the greatest copy and it's only part of the 10 minute animation, but you get the idea.
For more on what else she is doing, check out her website at: http://www.berylproductions.co.uk/
Her gallery of drawings on the website is particularly worth checking out.

Her drawings are really quite fantastic!
