**** 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. *****

I made my first tutorial because someone else made one that really was awful... This is a tutorial that I WISH I HAD. it will show you alot of different things about building and animating a character. ENJOY!

When I try to get two things to move by tweening them, say an arm with a hand on the end of it, they don't stick together, the arm rotates around its rotation point and the hand rotates around its rotation point but moves in a straight line, detatching itself from the arm. Is there a way to put them together so they don't do that? Sorry, I'm a total noob, I'm on day 2 of the 30 day trial an I suck at flash. If anyone could answer this question that would be nice.
