    Thank you so much for your amazing tutorials! I’ve been watching them ALL because I have an animation project due Monday for my “Digital Skills for Visual Media” class. You have brought clarity to the fog that was my brain trying to understand Flash (Photoshop and Illustrator came so much easier to me!!).And please TALK all you WANT- this is exactly how a teacher should teach to effectively show how to do something the right way- highlighting each step and issues that may arise! Thank you!

  101. WillJ1991 says:

    [..YouTube..] I really need someone to answer my question. What I’m trying to do is to create a tween on a shape in a picture. For instance, I draw a man in a good tablet drawing program. Then I draw another picture of him lifting his leg, then a third picture of him taking a step. I import these into flash, put them 10 frames apart each. Now, what I want to do is put tweens in-between these three frames to make it look like he is taking a step fluidly. Can anyone tell me how to do this???
