          Hi

           

          You could do stop animation.

          Make a new copy of the image and paste it into another frame.

          change the position of the image...

          copy that image into another frame and reposition it again..

          Do this until you have a series of frames, that will complete

          the walk.

           

          Use onion skin to easily change the positions of your image..(Let's you see a ghosted

          version of previous frames, thus make you repositioning much easier).

           

          Tweening is also a possibility...

           

          Add a start keyframe and an end keyframe for each animation group.

          Then you use actionscript to access your animations...

          gotoAndPlay(framenumber), stop.... etc....

           

           

          Do some testing...It's not that hard

           

          Best regards

              Hi again Bryce

               

              To move an object from one position to another position, simply use the object's x and y properties.

              Use events to listen for keystrokes and move object accordingly...

              That should point you in the right direction. You need to do some collision testing if there are obstacles

              involved..

               

              Good luck with your project

               

              Best regards

              Peter
