I plan to make a huge animated billboard, the animation counts around 6500 frames without empty shadows. Can SHP Builder import a 13000 frame shp? Or can it copy 6500 empty frames to the animation?

I don't know about the limits, but if everything fails, you can still create 10 separate 1000 frames SHPs and then use Next= to connect them ingame.

Are you sure, so many frames are really necessary? Do you plan to show a complete movie on a drive-in cinema ingame?

With 6500 frames, you can show ingame a 4.3 minutes long animation (with 25 fps). Which player will ever look at the same billboard for such a long time?
During that, whole games have been won and lost.

Mixer is better idea to try as only memory is the handicap here and shp builder isn't too efficient with memory (any large shps make it lag real bad). I sure hope its paletted already or the process is way heavier to import (thus slow).

Still amount of frames is quite high, may turn into performance problem (memory and game speed wise) even if works. I'd seriously rethink it a bit.
