Playing with Wallaby

This is my attempt to convert an old Flash animation (my old animated signature when I was young ;) )  to HTML5 using Adobe's Wallaby tool.

Because of the nature of this animation, a lot of SVG files were generated. The total size of the HTML5 animation is 1.1MB compared to 21.6KB of the Flash counterpart. (OMG, way to much less efficient). I had to edit some JavaScript to add a preloader for it. Another side note is that Wallaby only works with Flash CS5's fla. (The tool failed to open my old animation in CS3 format).
