Yeah so in playing with flash recently in my downtime at work I did some quick little exercises in an attempt to mimic that awesome UPA effect with the static textures on moving characters.. I don't know if that inadequately describes what I'm talking about but thats why I'm slapping them on here!
(sorry for the fragmenting... CS3 does weird shit.. Ill try to fix it later.)
It was a lot easier than I thought actually, pretty much just mask the texture with the animation. I'll probably do more of these for the hell of it!
