Hi there! I Just don't know that in the MLP Motion comic, We can move mouse and comic is animated. How I can do this? :( (Sad) 
Hi there! I0d like to put my comic (in this group: An-Elves-Tale) into a motion book, so people can read it easily and not oppening each page. Is possible to do that? And if I make an account can I select the pages I wanna display?

Thanks in advance

Hi, I tried to post my issue on madefire forum directly but somehow it keeps on telking that my accoubt expired... anyway I just wanted to know as it seemed that madefire doesn't support Animated gif, it is possible to upload a video in Madefire cloud instead?

It's just I'm working on a scene in which a series of images not related are shown very quickly and I don't think it can be achieved with the current Madefire animation system.

As far as I know the tool doesn't support gifs. I did something similar using separate images played rapidly after each other here:

Gifs are tricky to incorporate into motion book grammar because they usually involve a lot of movement and pacing control, limiting the process of 'reading'.

Thanks for the reply :) I did use their own tool instead and it worked.

Welcome. If you have any more questions your welcome to ask me. I don't know everything about the tool, but if I can help I will :)

Before I mess with it, what does motion book do?  I'd like to know.

The motion book tool is an online user interface which allows artists/writers to compose assets (Images, text, audio) into a motion book. Visual example here:…

I started to like Motion Book more (good tutorials, btw, thanks), but I get some problems/questions as I play along.

Does somebody know if it's possible for two different dA users to collaborate by sending Motion Book "pages" or "projects" between them? Or is there any hidden tips and tricks for this?

Thank you!!

The motion book tool was designed to support collaboration between the DA community from different countries so yes. The only way I know how to do it would be to allow access into your account although I think there is a better way to do it when setting up account preferences in the actual tool. 

Also, as far as I know it causes problems if both users are on the account at the same time (I sand to be corrected).
