This has been done extremely well! The expressions in the boxes are easy to see, they match expressions seen in the animated series and are easy to use, the detail is marvelous and the presentation is very crisp, clear, professional and brilliant for reference! The color scheme used for Twilight Sparkle and the body parts are spot on, I'd imagine that the animators of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic would have constructed something similar to this, making it seem more organized, thoughtful and that extra bit more excellent. You've done an amazing job with this, be very proud of this, you've sure put the effort in!

Hey there buddy! Nice job; the only thing is that in your front view of Twilight, her back legs are bow-legged. And if you look at some of the images of her front view (at least the ones I've managed to find on google) her hind legs don't protrude that far. She's got like, fat back legs and then normal back legs on your 3/4 ad profile. Just slim down those beefy hind legs in the profile, and I think you're good as gold. Of course, unless that's on purpose and it's meant to be that way? I'm not sure but, it looks a bit off. Good overall job though. Obviously, cause you're like, the master of ponies and stick men. But uh, yeah. Just go back and try to look through the episodes at Twilight in her front view and see if those hinds need to be slimmed down.

Ah, I've found out that at least some of the puppets are downloadable as *.fla straight from dA.  [link]

Hey Ultra! Thanks for the info :)
I was sad and mad against me, because I had a lot of chances to download the rigs from the site and I always let it for later, and suddenly, no more doublerainboom.com :'(
I found some customs rigs too, from this group:

Same question as the above poster.

Found a custom-made Trixie-puppet: jordo76.deviantart.com/art/Tri…

I'm guessing with all these people using them, it'll not take too long before they start floating around all over the place. :)

So far I've been able to gather most important ponies, even filly versions for some. But no Rainbow, Twilight or Rarity.

I would love to try this, but I have no idea on how to insert or create your own puppets. Do you know any guides on how to do this?? The program I'm working with is anime studio 9.

I'm new to using flash, so this is probably going to sound really stupid of me, but when I open the FLA in CS6 there's no images. The library and everything is empty, so it's more of just a blank template with the file name. Is there something else I need to do?

Well that's . . . :confused: . . . not good. Does this happen with all of the puppet .flas from Double Rainboom's site? Or just a particular one?

actually it seems to only be the Pinkie Pie one from the DA download ... that was the first one I tried. Although it worked just fine from the Double Rainboom site.

Unfortunately not - they only go as low as CS4.0 :nuu: However there are a few programs out there that will convert a higher version .FLA into a lower version - you just have to search a little.

The different mouths and eye motions are all nested within the symbol. You have to double-click to enter the symbol and change all of the stuff in there using the single frame option under properties. Check out my tutorials on YouTube to learn how to work the puppets. ^^
