* Some AGA/workbench 3.X users may have difficulty running this animation
(the player returns an 'out of memory' error, even when there is plenty)
or the animation plays badly centered with the edges cropped usually with
a multisync monitor.) Users experiencing these problems should, if
possible, close other programs that are on their own screens, Reconfigure
their Workbench screen to NTSC or PAL mode with 16 colors or less, and
remove any pictures used as workbench and window backdrops. These measures
should fix most of the problems associated with playing Moviesetter
This animation was created by scanning animation on paper and
reconfiguring that animation to Moviesetter form. The intent was to
determine the best possible from Moviesetter animations. The main
difficulty was the animation's story was too large for it to fit
efficiently in memory (It would likely require 18 megs or more to hold it
in its complete form). Also, the animation playback was not as efficient
as I had anticipated. Later on, I produced the animation "Plight of the
Artist" with Sabrina - as a better testament to show the full potential of
MovieSetter animation. With luck, I will produce animations to tell the
rest of the Flip the Frog "SnowBound" story in the future.
