I am quiet new to Flash want to do a small animation.
What I want to achieve is have symbol (in the shape of a pencil) and have that appearing to be drawing lines.
Some of the lines drawn would be quiet elaborate (motion guide?). I have made a few attempts but I am hitting some stupid problems.
One is how do I get the nib of the pencil to become the point of attachment to the motion guide? (the middle of the pencil keeps attaching to the motion guide).
Is there a simple tutorial out there that would be able to help me achieve this?
It sounds like the registration point of your pencil is somewhere in the middle if that's where it locks to the motion guide. YOu should be able to move it to the tip by opening the pencil symbol for editing and moving everything so that the point is at the registration mark.
