Migrating from TBS5 to Animate

All right, I went ahead and did the pre-order on Animate2.

Is there a good strategy for migrating my .tpl files to Animate? I’d like to not have to redraw the cutouts. I know that I’ll have to re-rig them, I just want to minimize the total work that I’ve got to do.

The best thing to try would be to do an export to swf. If you then import the swf into Animate, it will preserve your layers. The layer names won’t be preserved, but you’ll have the structure and the drawings come over intact.
