I'm fairly somewhat new to the animation program Flash 8. There is so much I don't know how to do or what is there to do. I want to finally start animating my HUGE animation project. Is is possible to keep the same image on different frames? When I draw something on one frame, I want it to stay in that place so I can move it differently in the next frame and so on. However, when I do get to another key, it goes blank. Can this be done? Or do I have to use a different program. if you’ve seen the TV show “The amazing world of Gumball", or the animated music video "Mystery Skulls: Ghost" I want it to have the same clean look. Another thing, can you get blur and other glow effects in Flash 8? I would really value your help. Thanks
Yes, to all your questions.
There are plenty of videos on YouTube worth watching, here's a randomly picked one: Advanced Flash Animation - Made Simple! (Tutorial) - YouTube
Also, for a few hours more today, and all day tomorrow, there are live demos of using the tool:
Right now they're showing mixing music and animation.
