It doesn't. You should draw every frame. All the time.

No way is "better".

Whatever way you are able to best tell your story/make your game/animate your character/whatever is the way you should use.

It helps for making background/foreground movement. When applied to character movement, it usually results in movement that doesn't look very natural.

It has upsides and downsides. I would suggest watching some flash movies here and picking out where they use tweening.

For sprite movies, hell yeah.
But for cartoons, nope.
Draw every frame if you're making a cartoon.

Motion Tweening is smoother than normal frame-by-frame work,

Harry Partridge's "Jimmy Tickles' Magic Pickles" was made almost entirely out of tweening so it can look almost as good as FBF if you do it right.

I rather watch a nicely done tweened animation than a mediocre frame-by-frame one.
Frame-by-framing is hard, it might looks better but that's if you do it right. If you suck at drawing or animating, you should start with tweening and then add fbf here and there. With time you'll get more comfortable and you might start adding more and more fbf.

Now let's be realistic, you're not a huge studio, you're just a single guy doing the whole animating. Making a 100% fbf animation is really hard, it takes time, you'll probably get tired of it and kill someone in the process. Just try to combine fbf with tweening first, maybe with time you'll get enough resistance to handle more fbf till you become the next Happy Harry.

Just do whatever works best for you. I like to use a combination of FBF and tweening.


Do you think your attractive? Go to my youtube channel to find out (or not).

Frame-by-frame is much better then tweening. FBF is also much easier. Tweening is really hard, and it does only look good if it's done by professionals. If you're new, do FBF.


Check out my flash animations, and games. I've also made some bad music, and art ;)
