1. Fades are missing from scenes 1-25 on purpose. Scenes 31-54 are exact copies of 1-25, but with fades. I'm pretty sure I got the fades back...no problems there.
2. I see what your saying...those people are memory hogs! What's weird is after you pointed that out, I deleted all 6 people AND all unnecessary objects. Now the file is larger: 11MB!! I cannot figure this out. Try it on your end...try deleting the people and save the file as a different name. What is your file size after doing this?
Thanks for the compliment on the programming.
