    • Watty did a whole routine once, several years ago. It was to Queen's "We are the Champions" tune. Don't remember the software he used, but I questioned him and he threw a quick 2-3 maneuver sample together reasonably quick. But that program would now be a dinosaur in the computer world.  Try this, hope it still works:  
    • So be it, I’ll post whatever else comes up, hopefully YouTube.
    • Yes, I can see them.  Thank you.  Looks like not being able to view the video issue is on my end. Know Eye Deer, SHBKF
    • I've been looking at both - short maneuvers (elements) as building blocks that can be combined into more complex routines (choreography).  My eventual goal is to build out full routines with music - I think that will be easier for us to learn and master.  It really helps for us to see all three of our kites in motion at the same time. While I am not a fan per say of Flash videos, I am open to switching to Adobe Animate if we can get a community building reusable maneuvers.  If I continue to go it alone I will probably stick with SynFig Studio. I really like your last question - is it something people need?  When there were no responses I started thinking I may be an anomaly in this area, and most teams use more on-the-fly techniques like JB does.  I'm really interested to see if others are using any tools like this.
    • Are you thinking about short elements with 5-10 steps, or are you talking about choreography for a complete song?  The Reed Design tools step along a small number of animation frames, but it seems like you mean full routines. While I think you meant Flash videos instead of Adobe Flash (now called Adobe Animate), for me personally laying out things like that with Adobe's tools is easy since I've used it in my day job (game developer), and the editing tools allow straightforward manipulations of timelines with audio.  Now I'm curious, too: What do people who don't have access to that type of tool use? Are there any kite choreography tools out there to the masses?   Is it something people need?
