Previously from [link] , I got it finished! Wow, what a killer, I just got major snags when my preloader went buggy, bottlenecking connection and not to mention been trying to use Action Script 3, but it turns out AS3 is just too advanced for me to use and I still can't get even the simple basics of commands to respond correctly, so I go back to the old AS2 instead.

And again, I never feel this animation to be a lot harder than the Applejack Sniper I've done long time ago, and this time, I have to use the Bones tool to get Octavia's playing arm right when she moves the violin stick quite a lot. But luckily I did it well despite it doesn't look perfect.

Anyway, hope you all enjoy the full and finished animated version.

"Lying in Wait" Red Alert 3 soundtrack (C) Electronic Arts
My Little Pony (C) Hasbro

PS : To those who are requesting me to do the "Soviet March" soundtrack, thanks but no thanks, it took me 2 FULL STRAIGHT days to do this animation project, alone with animating Octavia & preparing the props, not counting in the action scripting. I could do it too, but can't, it's super time consuming and not to mention I have to make a Joseph Stallion portrait, male choirs and most of all, a longer work for Octavia too.

"Lying in Wait" is 1:05 long, "Soviet March" is 2:44, nearly more than twice the length! It's no point giving it a try, I have to do tons of cleanups and changes, especially the violin stick and her playing arm, which I managed to use the Bones tool to take care of, but it's still not perfect. So, I wish I could still do "Soviet March", but I can't, full time working adult here!

I like it, though it's interesting that you have her play something that's mostly brass.

It is sticky and it's very difficult to animate, it is very painful during the process. I wish I could do more but I decide not to, unless if I know 3D, then I can do more.

"Soviet March" is too long, "Rumpelkombo" is too short...

There's just no pleasing you!

Look, I prefer to keep it 1 minute is enough. That is reasonable, Rumpel is stupidly short and not to mention it's guitar (I KNOW my songs when it comes to anything has violins, if there's a song with no violin, I cannot animate that), ED has an Octavia Flash game that allows you to play that freely. And my animation goes into my portfolio, and I can't allow Rumpel to ruin my reputation.

And you should put yourself into an animator's shoe, creating a 3 minute scene in one of the MLP episodes don't take 1 hour to finish, it can take a half day or so just to get it right. Moreover, even certain live actions like the Team Fortress 2 parody "Sentry Sabotage" also took days to a week to finish it.
