Animating Heads w Miles Prower by thweatted Animating Heads w Miles Prower by thweatted

I suddenly felt inclined to start another fanimation this morning. It's not finished. This is a video of part of the process. It's more of an example than a tutorial since sliding symbols around in flash is just how flash works, but the point I'm trying to make is that you can have as little as one drawing and the movement doesn't have to be stiff and jerky and that you don't have to have a lot of drawings to get a non-stiff non-jerky animation.

That's how I do my "3D" animations, like this one: [link]

Except mine are mostly not symbols, and I mostly use shape tweens, except for the stuff that doesn't change its shape.

I have one that I haven't worked on since last year, cause its so complex...

lovely insight. This is what i cant get my head around with digital animation. I dont have the patience to create each individual part, and then animate by moving each part, in my head I just want to animate it freehand and I think it would be quicker. I know most instances it isnt though. I need to learn more flash...

That's really impressive! You make flash animating look so simple and easy. I'll have to try it one day when you post a full on tutorial. *hint hint* Hehe Nice job!
Please post when you're done.
