I need to create animations fron a set of jpegs. I can layer selections in photoshop; create symbols in Flash, although When I open a multi-layer psd in FL, don't always get multi-layers in FL. More importantly, what graphic/symbol formats are required for the typical animation techniques (eg, different tweens, bones, puppet). Can't seem to find this info anywhere. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks. Ron
with classic tweening, use vectors. to convert a bitmap to a vector in flash, select it, click modify, bitmap, trace bitmap. with motion tweening convert your bitmaps to movieclips (right click, click convert, convert to movieclip).
