Idiot alert, everyone. Apologies in advance...
I've been asked to create a short animation cycle in Flash, but I've never touched the program in my life. I was given the following instructions:
- the 0,0 position must line up with the center of the characters
body, so that means the legs should be centered on the X axis and the
0 Y axis lines up with the neck placement.
- the head clip must be animated but empty. I would animate the head
normally then remove the subclip from inside the animated clip.
- all animations must be on the same root timeline of the movieclip.
subclip animations will not work.
- all clips / tweens should be named properly according to their
stage and body type and placed inside a folder in the flash library
- base movie runs at 24 FPS so keep in mind when creating timing
After beating my head against a wall for two days, I've got the character imported and animated, and (I think, at least) properly positioned. Now I'm completely baffled and I need a little hand-holding to get through the last few steps... I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me. I'm used to paper.
OK... clip dealt with. Where/what is the Subclip? How do I remove it?
I'm sorry to ask such basic questions, but I am honestly just baffled. Online tutorials are helping me with bits and peices, but I'm having trouble here and I could use a hand.
SubClip have the presence if a Movieclip is nested. In the sense, A movieclip have inner movieclips. you can check it by double click on a movieclip and again you have the possibility to select a movieclip inside that. Then it is called the subclip and also when doubleclik subclip you can more and so on...
