If you want an eye-opener, just watch "The Incredibles" and only look at the lip-sync. It's actually pretty horrible, but you would never notice it unless that's all you were concentrating on. For decades lip sync was non-existant. Characters either had an open mouth or a closed one. No one ever co...

And please, never insult anyone by compar...

I should explain better: I like to draw in Flash and then I export to an AI or EPS file. I have trouble importing them into APS or Moho. Any help is appreciated!
