    Banner help

    I lurk here alot decided to make ana account and ask a qwestion! Okay i am the gfx guy for a Css clan. I recently made a new banner wich i animated with image ready to fade between different versions of the banner.

    The website for the example

    but after i had mad the image i relized it was way to big (around 11mb). So I diddnt want to chop down the animation cuss it was perfect and would look like crap if it went any faster.. So i tried converting it to flash thinking mabey it would shink file size or at least load up faster than the huge gif... i was wrong (27mb) .. My qwestion(s)

    1) I made the animation by saving a bunch of different jpgs and tweening them to blend in photoshop.. is there a way to do this in flash? bassically can i animate it the same/better in flash?

    2) i seen flash banners with more animation then this and at a much smaller file size. What am i doing wrong? I think mabye doing the animation in photoshop might be the begining.

    Okay guys, hopefully this thread was in context with the rules
    (yes i read them but i do tend to miss things)
    Thanx for any replys in advanced

    and for easyer explaing:
    my msn msngr: Covenantcloud@yahoo.com

    email: Dustin.fate@gmail.com

    but basically i just want to know how to do that sam animation using flash and still keep the filesize down

    You can fiddle with your jpg compression in Flash to get a smaller size. Under 'File' click on 'publish settings' to open up the publish settings box. Then under the 'flash' tab, you will see a jpeg quality slider. You can move the slider to the left for lower size and quality.
