What is the best way to keep your animation under the 75k restriction.

I have a rather good animation that I want to post but am having trouble reducing the file size.

Any help will do

Thanks guys.

Maybe with only a few pixels used for animation in the extra layers...

I gave up on a post that I wanted to animate but couldn't do it with the new size restrictions. Have you considered posting a still and adding a link to the animation? Or perhaps shrinking it enough to fit file size, then posting a link to the full-size version? I've seen both things done, with some success.

Yeah done that splodge, the damn things 60 frames at 10k a frame so I dont think I stand a chance. Will post a still or small image and hope people hit the link in the comments. Spent f**king hours on this one. Now I remember why I dont do animation.

Just a note:
Always start your chop by knowing what your output requirments are....
if your idea is as big as the empire state building but needs to fit through a mouse hole....
then you need to rethink your idea.

Always remember the K.I.S.S. rule....(Keep it simple stupid)

Yeah I agree dbbowling, but when ya sitting around for the H2H to come to an end you just got to do some thing, and lets face it we all get carried away some times and forget the restraints and let the inner artist take control....
