Howdy folks, I see this has created quite the debate. I can confirm that both my Flat Icon Animation demos were created entirely in SL1 and SL2, then published to Flash. At the time I published to Flash because the HTML5 output was not up to par. It's still not great for animations in my opinion, but it's getting better (in Chrome at least). The limitation on animations in IE would make it difficult to create something that is supported across all browsers, but you could probably get pretty close using the "masking" technique described above. This might not be the same masking effect you are used to if you have experience in video editing (Premiere, AE), but you can use it to create some interesting effects. I do this A LOT and recommend playing around with it if you haven't done so ... Expand
