Made with "Sleepless in Ponyville" in mind, this is just a short little story of how Scootaloo truly becomes Rainbow Dashe's "little sister"... in a way.
Song is "Follow Me" by Muse off their album "The Second Law".
Animation is about 3 minutes and 49 seconds long.
This took a total of 68 hours of work in Adobe Flash CS6 professional, and would have taken less time if I had made my own animation puppets. So yeah, all the art in this is mine except for the Double Rainboom public domain pony animation puppets and the fire, and this will be the last time I use them because I can't stand how cluttered/layered and limited they are. Alot of the clipping pony parts in this animation were because of that. Anyhow, I plan to do frame by frame animations or ones using my own custom puppets from now on now that I have a tablet.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed this, cause as usual, I'm not proud. xD
Here it is eventually. The model, where all these changeling models, I uploaded recently, come from. This was the longest render, I ever did. 1200 frames rendered in about 2 weeks!
Unfortunately, I must say, it's not the quality, I wanted to achieve, but I just couldn't render more samples or remove more light. I will perhaps render this again, when I or a friend of mine has a better machine.
So, there's a second chance. If you find something, what you think, is a glitch, feel free to tell in the comments. However, I already know, there are fireflies and noise. You don't have to tell me.
NEW IN 2.4 - Trotting animations (trot cycles) - Running animations (run cycles) -- only for Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash - Three quarters (3Q) walking and trotting animations - Improved walk cycles and all animation cycles, organized into folders and layers for animating, and reduced symbols - Basic puppet rigs for the mane6 and other ponies - Blinking animations - Lots of new background vectors and props from the show, including Crystal Empire - Expanded set of mouth shapes for lip syncing
This is just an interactive demonstration using the animations in the flash resource kit, which can be downloaded below for the animation program Flash.

This is intended to help people build their own animations. Either as a reference, or using the assets, it should be helpful to see how animations in the show were made. For example, you can break down Rainbow Dash running frame by frame, and see how she was animated. Use the animation clip, copy it, or just reference it for your art or animation. - and you don't even have to credit me if you don't want to!
The Double Rainboom team created excellent animation puppets, which were taken down. The Double Rainboom assets can be downloaded HERE: (thanks to Electro-BLITZfor the files)
I went ahead and gave in to a lot of comments saying that this needed sound. So I went ahead and dug through all the libraries of sound bytes I could get ahold of. I hope you enjoy it. (I added a mute button in case you don't like it)
Screensaver will still play as muted since I can't add a default setting with InstantStorm. Hope you enjoy!
kemdnhaayt (takemyhand mixed) ^Totally not a secret code. (totally was)
I think I can hear humming... ^Also not secret riddle stuffs, nope. (hurr durr, the song has humming in it)
I hear voices from the fading shadows... (playing on the fact that it's a song.. and the lyrics: "You know that shadows always fade")
Any idea yet folks?
Minor update: we have background! Woot!
And ofcourse the complimentary trickery- Of sound and silence, echoes the hug of a larger magnitude.. (The top comment at youtube over the song was "this song is like a big hug")
Major update: Quite a lot of new stuff :3
Secret stuff? --> Lyra approves when 26 seconds fade away! (At 26 seconds in to the song, the word HAND is said for the first time.. Lyra.. Hands.. you get the point) ----------------------------------------------------
Welp, it's done. Was planning on doing the whole song.. but then my ideas ran out.. and what I came up with became repetitive.. (insert more excuses) Sorry!
Hope you like it anyway
Oh, and the size is like 3mb so give it some time to load if your connection is inferior! 3:
--- Equestria Daily! WOOP! THANK YOU!
The song is ofcourse: Take my hand - by our lovely Tara Strong!
