There are several important points to keep in mind when creating any single-phase animation, (ie: one that stops at the end, and waits for new input before continuing.) The first concerns the two end frames, as these are the only ones the viewer actually gets a chance to really look at. These two frames are saved at a high quality setting, but the in-between frames are another story. First they've had a "motion blur" placed on them (12 pixels in this case, as the distance between each frame is 24 pixels.) You'll notice the quality of my middle frames are rather poor, as they are JPEGs saved at the absolute lowest quality setting. This distortion saves bandwidth, and actually *enhances* the effect of motion. Cool, huh?
