the only benefit of using a graphic is:
1. a graphic decreases a miniscule amount of file size from your swf if you use thousands of graphics vs thousands of movieclips.
the benefit of using a movieclip is:
2. if you ever decide you ever want to use actionscript in your swf you have overwhelmingly more flexibility and control over your movieclips than your graphics. ie, if even years after creating your animation, you might want to use even the smallest amount of actionscript with your application, use movieclips.
Thank you very much, is there any specific reason why sometimes the lines on
objects say a leg for example tend to cross and create empty areas when
using the bone tool as a movie clip? Or is there something else I have to do
i'm sure there is but i don't know what you're seeing and i've only experimented with the bone tool so i'm not that knowledgeable about it.
No worries I'll keep searching the forums or video lessons. Thank you very
much for your help though!
