… I’m still hitting obstacles and inanities — the “okay, the first fifteen times I did this, it worked, and now it doesn’t — WHY?~? — and no, I don’t know another way” thing… but now, twice, within a minute I’ve figured out why it didn’t work and what to do about it. (No. I am not anticipating being an AfterEffects expert, but I can at least use the power tool without hurting myself 😉 ) It’s not happening always — I still try to export a .swf and get all the right noises for the process… and a blank screen.
And I can’t wait to get this part done so I can go back to doing mathy stuff.
