Question in the title. What do you feel that new animators or beginner flash users really need help with.
I am writing a few tutorials on my userpage so any new ideas are all welcome.
also check my userpage to get a piece of art commissioned I need the practice.
what i am wondering about as a newcomer to full blown flash animations where the frames are not bitmaps or others encoded to flv (using a free flash animation program with action script 2 suport : vectorian giotto)
when i draw my shapes, animate some motion, i notice that playing the swf results in all the objects going outside of the canvas size / image border.
when i play ng clips everything stays where is and never leaves the border, unless you download them and play the clips seperate in your browser and notice never seen before ignored unfinished parts passing the edges .
what causes this, and how does that work ?
as now i am at a full stop on understanding this.

i just create new frames and no scene defined, after setting the size of the "canvas".
so you get a box that represents the size that schould be the size seen in the final swf.
then i move the frames.

yes, in more precise words, there are parts beyond the stage / canvas.
maybe this helps explain :
if you by example download the goku vs superman (blow up the planet) clip here
and play the flash file directly in the browser you will also see parts beyond the stage.
what i wonder is how come, and why dont you see them in the player.
thank you for your atempt help by the way, apreciated.
once i got this figured out, i will be fine forever :)
Only items on the stage are meant to be shown, anything on the grey area on flash is outside of the stage.

Sorry dont know how to edit :P
Ok a v cam is a cam that you can move around to capture the grey spots
if your posting videos on youtube and your animation has a v cam don't export it as an avi
if your posting on video on youtube with v cam only export it as a quicktime so the vcam works properly
