Edit: did some tweaks to the video file before converting it to .swf so I managed to reduce the contrast and saturation increase the converting was causing! so it looks a bit more like I intended, also did some bigger changes to the values of the pink trees as they were too dark before.
This little animation sort of started as a way to learn a bit more how to use After Effects, as I initially used photoshop to put it all together, which is very difficult! This time I animated/colored it in photoshop than exported as .png into folders, than I could use After Effects to load each folder as an image sequence, each folder contains separate parts that is animated, like his beard, hair, sideburn hair etc, thus maybe 30 images for a part could be turned into one file in After effect for easier way to add effects and such.
But yeh still so much I don't know about the software so I have to keep looking tutorials when I run into a problem : ) ! but it should now be a bit easier for any future animation as I kind solved a few of the issues I had.
