If you''re going for a 360 degree view.. you''ll save a lot of time and problems with useing 3d instead of 2d animations for everything.
1.)  Use dynamic 3d objects.2.)  Use dynamic 3d objects.3.)  Use dynamic 3d objects + a camera.4.)  Use dynamic 3d objects + lighting.

What I''m trying to say is.. if you use 2d you''re just making your life MUCH more difficult, and development time will take a lot longer, it won''t be as flexible (aka, in 3d you can add characters by simply putting in a textured mesh with the vertices/bone relationships.. 2d.. you''ve gotta re-animate every single angle all over again!!!), the package will be a lot bigger, you''ll have to have much better artists (ones that can do "good" animations), and your program will need much more memory to run (and disk i/o to read in animations).

Is this a serious post? You must be joking, right? Considering that you wrote all that out, you must be serious. If that is true, no one in their right mind would go through the amount of work and hassle to do all this shit in 2d when 3d is prolific and available.

I know this isn''t "p.c.", or respectful, or deemed noble and understanding, but I think I secretly speak for many... you''re a ****ing idiot.

Hmm, thanks for the idea... this game might actually sell.

Use 3D, not 2D. Yeah, it is more to learn, but what you are planning will take 100 times as long and still not look right.
What pros are going to read our answers (what are their credentials)? And, before I waste time with this, what is the prize?
Heh heh heh...
