  4. I don't have a release yet, but if you private message me I can give you a preview.
  5. I actually have such a system but it is not ready for the public yet, however if your interested in being a part of it or testing PM me.
  6. Commented out html code was the issue on my project, remove all html commented out code to avoid strange issues. Hopefully this helps someone.
  7. I have found if you have commented out html code it gets rejected, I just had to remove commented out code on one of our banner projects to fix the issue.
  8. If your looking to get the most out of your banner file size wise, hand coding is by far the best. Program's like Edge, and GWD are great for people who want to prototype or aren't worried about file size. They typically add a lot of unnecessary ( and heavy ) code. Making something with high efficiency and performance, every bit matters, when you are pushing that limit right up to the file size boundary. Hyper optimizing your Images, naming conventions of your css, and even how your GSAP animation code is written can save you important kilobytes here and there. Some of the same tricks we used in the flash days can still be applied, with clever image cropping and masking etc. Eventually they may increase the cap or improve these GUI's so using them is more feasible. However if you ever compare them with hand coding in the file size category hand coding always wins in my opinion. Right now that seems to be the most important aspect of banner development.
  9. 10 files is the limit, though you should try to stay under that. Best way to do this is through the use of image sprites and minify/combining code files. At BannerWave we typically use 1-2 image sprites ( transparent png, and/or opaque jpg ) and minify all our code. Hopefully that information is helpful.
