Not sure if this belongs in the AE or the Flash forum. I'm beginning my first animation project in a very long time. I used to know a bit about Flash - but all the talk about Apple kicking FL to the curb confused me - so I spent some time learning AE (CS5.5). It's such a bear of a program so I'm really struggling with it and wondering if I should go back to Flash. One thing that really confuses me is that FL is frame based and AE is time / seconds based. So what the heck is my question… well - for simple animations, which is the better tool? And how do people switching from one to the other make sense of the frame/time confusion? BTW- I use FL cs 6 and have no need of Actionscript.
