Hey everyone. I'm pretty sure that most of you have noticed by now that New-Animators has been Woefully inactive for a while. (Though Still accepting submissions).  

:icondaanimators: DAanimators is back up and running and if you want a place where you can get more community interaction check it out.  

I know that they are looking for members.

Hey guys, anyone here got any good knowledge on Crash Bandicoot as well as animation skills? 

My good friend :iconxx-daveace-xx: is working on a fan made project of Crash and we are desperate looking for animators. We've been searching for months and still found none who are interested. 

Here's the link below on more detail about the project.…

I need some advice. I've been working on a gif with photoshop, probably not the most efficient way to animate but I'm comfortable with it and I don't have any other animation software. I've hit a snag at 200 frames. Memory issues in Photoshop prevent me from saving. My only solution so far is to break  animation into parts. I'm willing to do this for the creation process, but I'd like to put them all together when the monstrosity is done. Any ideas or suggestions?
