Here's the thing,
I doubt anyone will be able to find software that can record 10,000 frames+, do frame by frame, ALSO do object oriented/tween animation, create vector artwork, has the "Stream" function like Flash does so you can get what your hearing on screen perfect to what you're animating in real-time, and export movies as SWF among other formats, all at $100, other than SWF Quicker. Keep in mind the feature of importing SWF files would allow animators to crack open and study how animations work.
I guess my wishlist would be to have it where, when you draw with the pencil tool, it doesn't go back to the selection tool on release. That, and support for alpha on the filters (Movie Clips) so one could do lighting with layers.
I know these examples aren't that great, but then one could do dynamic lighting like:http://markhansavon.deviantart.com/art/ ... savon&qo=2
andhttp://markhansavon.deviantart.com/art/ ... savon&qo=1
Those were both created with Flash 8. They aren't much but the first one has 2 layers of lighting that I think...if I can recall move in opposing directions. I feel like SWF Quicker is better in some ways than Flash 8 at this point. It's an impressive piece of software, because it's also so lightweight (DEFINITELY lightweight compared to Flash CS x_x).
And btw, I do like the spider. =D
