All right, first question. When I make my cartoons and put musical sound files in them (MP3s, AIFFs), their quality seems a lot worse than the quality of Jenga's cartoons or HSRT's toons. What can I do to make them sound less fuzzy?

Hi. . .

I know, this is pretty weird, me esking a flash question, but I downloaded the 30-day trial, and I was wondering if anyon could link me up with some good flash tutorials?

Preferably the kind where you see the guy working in the program and speaking about how he's doing it.

Well I think that's just for saving space. Otherwise your swfs would be like 5 megabites. As for making them less fuzzy I have no clue.

I'm starting a series called "The Chronicles of Plastic".  It is made with frame by frame, (I think that's what it's called, it's when you put everyone in a pose, then take a still photo, then put them in the next pose, take a photo. . .), so how do I put them all together in flash? Like, so they play fast, so it look natural?

Just for reference, I think that style of animation is called "stop motion".  Good luck on the animatin'!

Stop motion!

That's what I was looking for!

I just spent about an hour making bases, cars, planes, and other cool dealies for the lego people.

Well I think that's just for saving space. Otherwise your swfs would be like 5 megabites. As for making them less fuzzy I have no clue.
To make um' sound less fuzzy you'll  need a sound editing program. Personaly, I use Wavepad. Eventualy the free trial for WavePad will run out, but I never notised a difference, so you can still use it after the trial runs out. Get that first, it's a fairly small download.

To clear out the background fuzz, you'll need to open the file in WavePad. Then, make sure that the parts where there's voices or other sound you want to keep it reasonably loud. if you're whispering, it won't work. If it's pretty quiet, just select tht part that is too quiet and choose 'amplify'. then, right-click and choose 'select all'. Then right click again and go to Effects -> Noise Reduction, and set the variable. The higher level you'll chose, the more sound you'll eliminate. If your speaking sound is to quiet, you might delete the sound you want to keep, as well as the fuzz you want to get rid of, so make sure to amplify the voices if nessarry. Hope that helps!

Hey, thanks, Golfy. That really helps me a lot.

EDIT: Oy, never mind. Windows only. Can anyone find software like that for Mac?

When I export an image from flash to a jpg, one frame, is there any way to make it less blotchy...ish.

As far as I can find there's no way to make the quality any better.

The only way is to make it a png file.
