    Flash Animations


    I played "Rumble Fish" today at the Chinatown Fair(name of the arcade) its a Flash animation and it looked Much better than any 2D fighting game that i have ever played in history besides Guilty Gear . It Used Flash Animation and the Characters moved more fluid.

    My Question is, is there any good programs used for flash Animations? Im gonna goodle but its always good to Get Advice from others.

    You can't just only teach your self you must learn from others too.

    Arcade games aren't usually from flash. At least I think so. The characters are sprites and they just overlay the background.

    Was it psuedo-3D?

    There's no real set way to make good graphics. There's so many ways it could be done.

    Some of the stick-games are pretty cool - I was watching my little bro play one the other day. Have you seen the xiaoxiao movies? Very fluid, 3D animation in Flash.
    this is the official site but it's slow: http://www.xiaoxiaomovie.com/index02.htm
    This link might be easier: http://www.newgrounds.com/collection/xiaoxiao.html
    The best ones are 3, 4, 7 and 8

    I know that the avatars in Habbo Hotel are drawn in 3DS Max and then imported into Illustrator, where each isometric "angle" of each character is touched up before being imported into Flash. So they are 2d but they look 3d.

    If you want really fluid motion, you will probably need to use keyframes, like true illustration and conventional cell-based animation.

    Based on the Japanese arcade fighting game featuring advanced new 2D graphic techniques that allows for layering of body limbs and sprites to create varying animations rather than rendering a vast number of sprites. The fighting system features a combo chain system, a super move bar, and a dodge button in addition to two buttons each for kicks and punches.
