Greetings, Everyone !
I was trying to make a simple animation of a coloured stickman..with each of his limbs is on different layers (i wanna do that way instead of blending/grouping each other into single layer)
When I'm trying to make an animation of the stickman doing a 180 degree rotation with motion tween...which means that I make a keyframes on each layers that have same length and stops at same frame.....and then at the end of the keyframes I selected all objects and rotated them simultaneously and finally "Create Motion Tween"...
But after I played it, instead of proper 180 degree rotation animation of the Stickman I expected, all I got is that all of the objects(limbs,head,body) are rotating very messy and out of place, like the image I inserted...
How do I fix this problem so I can get proper rotation (with motion tween and separate layers) ?
P.S: I'm using Macromedia Flash 8 Pro (Can this also be a cause ?)
but the case is, what if it is exported as videos such as AVI and MP4 ?
And it is still with separated layers...since I'm not just making a whole rotation, but also an animation within an animation..(i.e : swinging arms while walking)
it doesn't matter what format you use for export: you still should select all those layers and convert them to a movieclip. then rotate your movieclip.
if you want the arms to swing, convert each to a movieclip and animate the swinging. then add the swinging arm movieclip to the stickman movieclip timeline.
Flash 8 uses an older Quicktime export process that does not support nested frames inside of a Movie Clip. MCs only render in the Flash player. Newer versions of Flash have a new Quicktime Exporter that exports dynamic content (ActionScript generated graphics and animation as well as Movie Clips) that play in the Flash Player. For Flash 8 users such as yourself, select the Movie Clip instance and convert it to a Graphic symbol (using Properties Panel) and make sure the main timeline has enough inserted frames tio support the nested symbol's length. Rule of thumb: if you can play the timeline and see your animation from the main timeline in the Flash authoring environment, it will export to frame-based formats such as AVI, MOV, PNG sequence, etc...
