Wrote a script that automates changing a character’s timing in Flash – specifically for characters made of nested graphic symbols ( ex: mouth symbol inside head symbol inside character symbol, etc — the script can tunnel into the hierarchy as deep as you want it to go )

( ^least favorite part of this project was discovering that I say “mkay”… sorry to everyone )

( made in Flash CS5– should also work with CS4, though I’m not certain about versions previous to that )

 

… and some notes from the file:

// this was written quickly just for my personal work, yadda, yadda
// -- with luck, it should get the job done
// -- but there is almost no error checking, etc.
// Save before using! Sorry if you encounter forever loops! ( I haven't but ? )
// With that said, I think there are people who will find this script helpful
// if you find any bugs or have ideas for features-- let me know.
// -- can't promise that I'll make the changes but I will look into it

There’s no particular order to this– just a bunch of short films I like a lot.  Like, a lot a lot.

–and there are a few notes added here and there.

Unfortunately, some of these films can be hard to find, even online– or maybe they are on websites that feel frighteningly ephemeral — so for a few of the links, I can only push you in a promising direction.  Anyways, good luck and hope you enjoy the films!
