Sometimes I see Flash files that you can tell must be video because of their enormous file size. I don’t really work with video but I imagine they’re just imported and made into Flash files. But I think this is a bit misleading. I’ve actually purchased a file by mistake without realizing it was video. So why aren’t these files just sold over at VideoHive?

I agree.. those files should be sold at VideoHive. Flash Animations are a different thing though, in my opinion. :P

+1. Importing a video in flash doesn’t make it a flash file.

This should be a new rule the reviewers follow, if it is a video imported into flash, reject it and say to upload it to video hive, the next step would be to get all the animations on here transfered to video hive.

Could the same be said for a sequence of bitmaps?

A sequence of bitmaps loaded into flash could display some animation. Would this be classed as flash animation? checking out some of the animations on here there is quite a few that where not done in flash but because flash is being used to hold the animation sequenced bitmaps or video then is classed as flash animation. Do you think that’s right?

Surely an animated file should either be coded animation or time line tweened animation.? Purely video should be refused and the uploader told to go to video hive and well sequenced bitmaps should just be binned. Seriously not even 30 seconds animation can take the file well over 1mb. Is that good practice?

My two cents.

They do it a lot over here I can’t understand way you will buy something like this, in flash term its really a prehistoric method with major Swf size unless it’s a part of a project and you loading this as external in a very smart way .

When you do see the files that get through it makes you wonder what crap they are having to bin(refuse). Fd talk a lot about raising the bar yet these files get through.
