I'm all over that idea, Charles, and in fact have been trying to get something going for some time now.

Can ANYONE direct me to a software program that will take our finished audio-visual videos and translate them into something that can be viewed and heard on the web?

I keep hearing all about Macromedia Flash and other similar software, but with those you basically have to create the cartoon from scratch, and do it according to their definitions and restrictions. It's like I have this Cadillac to sell, but to sell it, I have to compact it, melt it down, trade the materials to a Yugoslavian bakery in exchange for flour, eggs, water, and sugar, whereupon I can begin baking a cake that will end up looking like a Cadillac.

It's another case of computers providing hoops to jump through rather than solutions to our needs.

I mean, there is a program called "Snappy" that can grab video images and turn them into JPG files. Why can't there be something that does the same thing but with sound and movement? I have to think there is. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, how about sharing?
