FlashTut: Basic Animation

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is about 9 minutes long (if you allow it to play from start to finish without skipping anything). It teaches you the basics to animating stickmen (these methods could also be applied to fullbody animation). I may not be a master of animating, but I understand it, I just need more practice.

This tutorial is rated Beginner. It will cover:
-Basics of Easing
-Anticipation For General Movements
-Basics of Force
-Realistic Movements
-Resizing Prevention

Enjoy, and request tutorials if your having trouble with something, or believe other people are! Thanks! :3

*I apologize for the dreadful animating, I believe I can do better. Which will be present in the next submission, Project: Infiltrate. Stay tuned for it! Please rate based on the material you learned, and only if you watched most if not all of it. Thanks!! :D

This Is a Very Awsome Tutorial.It very informative And it really helped me a lot 5/5 from me Bro

Pretty reasonable.

that was fairly reasonable. a good tutorial for beginers. while it doesn't show you how to do these things, it shows you what the finished product is like, and this can be a great help.

Thank you for the positive reinforcement. I'll be making other tutorials in the future following this layout. Hopefully people will enjoy those a bit more then they did this one (: (I might change it up a bit and show each frame of the animation rather then just showing the finished product)


I'm not good at flash and this helped a lot thanks great tutorial should have a better ratting.

CaKeS1 responds:

I agree. Thank you very much! I'm glad I could help you out! :3

CaKeS1 responds:
