AFO2 The Animation Specs:
Video:  320x240, 15fps, MPEG 4
Audio:  MP4 Sound.
All visuals by Dade W. Bell.
Music by Electric Light Orchestra. ©2002 Song title is "Danger Ahead" from the ELO Album "Secret Messages".  This is in homage to the Daicon 4 opening animation where ELO's "Prologue" and "Twilight" were used.  Despite attempts to contact Epic/ Legacy for the rights to use this song, I've never heard back from them.  Either way, this song is being used for a NON-PROFIT PURPOSE by a fan.
Software used:
Hash Animation: Master for all primary animation.
Infini-D and Strata Studio Pro for some backgrounds.
Adobe Premiere for editing.
At the beginning of the project, an Apple Power Macintosh 8600/250 w/ 96MB of RAM was used.  The project was completed on an Apple Power Macintosh G4/733 with 512MB of RAM.
Special thanks to Marshall and Martin Hash.
