What do most of you/(us) use for making movies in a 2d (going back to snes style) here?
Would you program move actions through loaded images?
Would you code the functions in Dynamic code (if possible to the language)?
Would you code an engine that does this for you, with file saved image filenames and coordinate changes?
would you make movies in a move making tool and load them in? If so, what would i use to make them?
pixel accurracy counts.

Windows Movie maker has serious limitations on frame time (Max 7 fps). Thats no use.
So..What do you do?

I would make a nice timeline editor for myself that more or less moves/places images from an image-pool around in a 'viewport', based on a fixed timer (25fps?). It's a bitch to code an editor like that, but in the end it allows you to make animations that are small to store ..

Try AvidDV its free, and a bloody good movie editor. If you do download it, it might pay to download some tutorials too.
