Flash is better for animations.

With flash you can do anything you want with text images, sound. Move away from giff to Flash.

What do you want the text to do?

Open flash, make 2 layers, image in one, text in the other.
Do you have any experience using Flash?

A video tutorial almost warrants sound since there is no instructional text to explain what's going on. You don't have an old pc microphone around? 8)

Hello Cocoonfx!!!!
Great tutorial. thank you very much.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

Yes you should do the Video tutorial, but if you don't wanna use the mic. just ad text to the video! it's more complicated though

dolar store.. they have some mics...

Thanks
