**** UPDATE: I have put a help portal on my website! You can visit it and post animations that you need help with... I will do my best to leave feedback for everyone. *****

Not a great tutorial I know but is helpful and if you use the one or two principles in it your animations will improve... God knows alot of people here need it.

-----I have to say.... WOW! I made this in a few hours tonight and everyone seems to really like it... THANKS GUYS! I would like to help people out if I can. I'm dumbfounded... THANKS to everyone who has reviewed this and left praises... I will have to make another one now... lol.

Thanks again!

Very good, but where's the "onion"?

A very good tutorial I must say.
But the only thing that bothers me is: What the heck is the "onion skin" tool??
I can't find a tool named like that anywhere in my flash.
You could have shown it button or something in that film, otherwise it's great.

JackSmack responds:

Ok alot of people are asking about the onion skin tool... it is on the bottom of the time slider bar... it looks like two white squares in flash 5... the reason I didn't SHOW it is cause I'm not 100 percent that it looks the same in MX but it should. Hope this helps. ALSO you can hit F1 and pull up the flash help base, and do a search on it. Guess I should put that in the next tutorial huh? Well I'm working on a really cool one for the next one... should help alot of people.
