Well here is the Pony base puppet I have been working on for the past few months.
Finally clear of all DHX parts and legal issues, ready to be posted publicly. It is based on the DHX style of puppets so except it to be more complicated to use than Double Rainboom puppets, but we made these in order to get away from those. We even added and cleaned up some stuff the leaked DHX puppets didn't include because those are no where near the puppets actually used on the show apparently.

~Notes about the puppet~
-Using Ctrl+F to replace color will miss some spots on the front hooves for whatever reason. You need to press Replace All twice when recoloring all the strokes to get them.
-The brow symbol to make an >: ( look is located as a hidden anchor near the top side of the eye.
-To easily place a cutie mark on every leg, drag it's frame over and replace the blank cutie mark frame in it's symbol.
-Cheeks are located in the lower lashes symbol.
-Move the magic symbol inside the horn outside of the horn on top of any hair.
-I added the Class Act layer because nothing can be taken seriously. (Use it to your benefit and make lip sync easier)
-Darken the Blink Cycle Symbol by around -10% or so for that emotional turmoil look.
-You can break apart a symbol like the front legs to further adjust the rotation of each part.
-Front Mouth Symbol, Frame 39.

~Things to Update on the puppet~
-Making the Eye and their blink cycles was the biggest pain of all, I will never truly be done working on them.
-A lot of the parts on the puppet like the wings were lined up roughly by hand, so I may need to tinker a bit more.
-Apparently I am missing a ton of different front and back legs comps. Also missing a ton of mouth comps, I'll have to look through some more refs to find them unless someone could just point them out to me.
-Wings are just uggg. As of now they only have the 8 and 13 frame flapping from Mr. Beaudette. They are the same on every angle and are missing a ton of other flapping wing cycles. The problem with making those for me is that the back wing is a different look completely then the front wing. It is often hidden behind the torso covering to much of it for a trace and I can't draw at all.
-A few problems here and there about line width.

Well, time to turn this into the mane 6.

Update: 3/26: Upgraded to the next version.
Update: 4/11: Upgraded to the next version.

It should work with all versions CS6 and later, earlier versions of Flash may have mixed results.

Um hi i have a question i used a pony puppet that looked similar to this but it might not of been this im just asking just incase it does when i used supposedly this puppet to make my OC's and when i try to place all those oc's i made into the same like scene it says more than one item in here or something like that and then it has options that say replace this file , dont replace this file and put duplicate files in folder and when i clip put duplicate files in folder flash doesnt respond and shuts down , i havent had this problem with any of my other pony puppets so im thinking it must be either your puppet or TheMistyPhantoms puppet cos she has a similar one to you .

If you turn the base puppet puppet into something else you need to rename all the symbol names from Base Mare to something else, otherwise that will happen.

Hey, I have a small problem with the file. 
I replaced all of the colors with my OC's  and for some reason it made the front legs (strangely not the hooves) disappear for of every frame except for the front and off center frames.

i want to try my hand at animations and i have a few questions
i know bery little but i'm learning, but the question i have i can't find anywhere

if i have a puppet base, can/how do i take the puppet components and edit them and keep them vector and not turned into raster, then when i'm done how do i make sure the new edited pictures stay puppetized

in my mind logically it seems like i can somehow open the puppet pieces in illustrator edit them and somehow move the new edited pieces back to flash

now please understand that i am very new too all this stuff so please if you know where i can get a good explanation to this question or is willing to help please note me

Moving vectors from Illustrator to Flash is a one way trip, unless you want to make them all svg exports, even then it might not work and it would be in puppet form. All animation and puppet editing is done in Flash once it's in there.

Click into that symbol, click on the eye then open the color window to adjust the colors of the gradient.

your wing problem might be solvable by mirroring it (as it were) then using the "mirror" as a reference 

questions: you made this (obviously)? free to use (it would be impolite not to ask - of course credit goes where credit is due!) ?

filly (want to make tia and woona thingy), stallion, colt bases?? (i am insane - plz excuse me) 

question: front view throw head back and yell at the sky (lipsync)? )as i said i am insane - lol)

You can do this animation more functional by adding the ability to pause or immediately switch to the desired angle? I do not use different flash programs, but as an artist I would be useful to see the desired angle for better presentation. Here it is quite difficult to do because of the high speed of rotation.
