Great Tutorial!

Hyperblast, I assume you mean putting a body part on top of another, do you see the layer bars next to your timeline? Click and drag them to change positions of your layers/objects in the layers. Top bar= uppermost layer bottom bar= bottom layer. Anyways, great tutorial JackSmack! This answer a lot of my questions about animating body parts.

Another great tutorial

Still not learning too much. Although a nice reminder of the rotation points. That does cause problems at times.

You can buy flash at macromedia.

Go to the flash portal and find the link called learn flash, for info. You can get a 30-day free trail. You can buy itfor about 500$ If you in middle school or hi school the price is reduced to about 100$ Try the free-trail, savior_of_flash.

The movie: Its great, its good so I understand it. Yet tweening alot isnt my style, i use frame-by-frame, but i may use a little bit of tween in my frame by frame, they work well together.
