Was looking for someone to finish off something I started... The details are here:


If you can make the banner look a little better and bring down the size at a fair price let me know.

hey gavstar -

Sorry I dont have time to help ya at the moment....After watching the complete cycle of the banner ad I can make a couple suggestions.

- The bitmaps used is what is making the file size so big. The trick to getting the SWF down to under 5k is to use vectors. Now you may think this is easy since you can use Trace bitmap in flash, but alas that can produce a lot of un-needed vector nodes. My suggestion is to trace out as much as you can thats worth while in the bitmaps, color the objects and use the vectors instead of bitmaps. If you use bitmaps, try to use them when you cannot recreate the effect in vectors.

- The length of the banner is pretty long. You should try and make a loop that appears endless.
