Instead of sleeping, I decided to make a universal tutorial on how to post all your animations from the three most used animation programs on this site. Hopefully this will end the "How do i post my animations" threads.

Where to download these animation programs
Flash CS4 Trial (https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?promoid=EBYEX&loc=en&product=flash)
Easytoon (http://www.flat2d.com/telechargement/EasyToon_1.99_EN_Setup.exe)
Pivot 2.5.5 (http://atlas.walagata.com/w/peterbone/Pivot.zip) Pivot 3 Beta (http://www.darkdemon.org/downloads/Pivot3.zip)


To start: Where to upload your animations.

Everyone here usually uses fileize and truploader. Fileize allows you to keep track of your content with an account.

How to upload and post your Flash animations

Alright, you have your animation.

Amazing! good work.

Now, go to File > Export > Export Movie
http://img709.imageshack.us/img709/3333/73018234.jpg

Name it, or don't, and save it.

Now upload it to filebox.me, and there you go.

If you want to embed the flash in your post, then copy the direct link instead:
http://filebox.me/files/47tqa4xd5_super_cool_animation.swf
and fill in the blanks.

height=* width=*
example:

height=400 width=550
And you'll get:
height=400 width=550

If you don't know the height and width of your animation, check it in the properties of your animation

Easytoon is simple.
Just hit the GIF button, and save.

go to www.imageshack.us or www.tinypic.com and upload your gif

Copy the direct link, and put it inside of some image tags, and there you go.

If your animation is too slow, then change the framerate by going to View > Animation Properties, and changing the number to a lower number

may want to update the first post's flash section to not tell people to use filebox.me (which is dead)

Are there non-download animators?

Zed
11-10-2014, 11:07 AM
There are a few. Google "browser based animation software" and take your pick. But the ones I've looked at aren't very user-friendly so I'd still recommend using flash or pivot if you can.
