Best tutorial ever!

I like the way you explain stuff, informative and most importantly, engaging. I'm a motion designer, but i've been getting a lot of work about character animation, and I never thought I'll go back to Animate from Afterfx , but after watching this, for characters, I might will.

Thanks! I'm glad it could be of use to you! :D

This is a superb tutorial! Informative, well paced, funny and useful. I hope people trying to take their first steps into animation find you. Well done!

funymony responds:

Thank you! I'll be sure to make more!

too bad no more flash next year

funymony responds:

No more Flash PLAYER. The Flash PROGRAM is just fine.

Long ago the internet was extremely slow and couldn't stream video. (Youtube didn't exist yet.)
But animation was everywhere.

You could only watch cartoons if you had the Flash Player.
But we have fast internet now and don't need it anymore.

Flash and Animate exports different files that don't need the Flash Player.
.MOV, .MP4, .PNG, .JPEGS, .GIFS to upload on Newgrounds, Youtube, and everywhere else on the internet.

It's used for animated T.V. shows, art, and video games. So it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

One of the best tutorials I've ever seen. I would have liked seen how you get to upload it to the portal and it get blamed. But it is just a personal taste. I loved it. POWER FLIP!
