This is what I'm talking about, Charles. People getting all excited about the "animations" they can create ... it ain't what we do.

I can always tell on a person's resume if they say something like, "I have extensive experience in creating animations ..." At that point their resume goes into the circular file.

Macromedia Director was something put together by somebody trying to re-invent the wheel for another universe. A whole new generation of "animationers" is learning a whole 'nother set of rules and definitions and techniques. Are these "animations" going to become TV shows or movies? The thrill of making something move wears off quickly.

In the mean time, the animators that this site is all about are making cartoons for the big(ger) screens ... and all it needs is simple file translation to put it on the web.
