We're waiting patiently. (Not really so patiently.)

I'll be upgrading to CS3 soon, which is compatible with a 3rd party plug in that makes it easier to manipulate jointed characters. Stay tuned...

So? Where's the ... oh. I see/read.
Do you have After Effects, then?

I don't know if that puppet tool will be able to do your feetsies prancing along the skulls quite the same way you'd do fbf.

Even as a still this is one of my favorites!

Thanks Sally, Stray and Boodababy.
I don't have AfterEffects, but I do work with compositing software in my day job. Except there I'm supposed to make things look plausible. No funny business.
When I said CS3 I meant Flash CS3.
The plug in thingy basically ties the characters together with joints. It is a puppet tool of sorts- strings them together like a marionette (I've rotoscoped with a similar tool). I'll still be in charge of animating them.

is that moho?

Hi Sally,
It's not moho, but it allows you to connect parts in ways similar to mojo. It's called iK'motion.
