Animation - Onion Skinning
Onion Skinning allows
you to see a faint ghost image of the previous frame so you can see where
you want to place the artwork for the next frame. First of all you need
to add a new layer on your Stage - you will draw and animate your Frog
on this Layer, while your Text is on the previous layer.
1 - Draw
a Frog on the Stage
over this... just draw the frog!
2 - Select
Frame 2 and add a Keyframe
In Frame 2 click
on the Frog to select it, and move it up and to the right.
the bottom of the Timeline there is a row of five buttons. Click
on the second one- this turns on Onion Skinning
|Notice how you
now can see a faint ghost image where your first frame was?
3 - With
the Transform Tool selected rotate, scale etc your Frog. Continue
to add Keyframes for each change you make in the Frog. Do this for
> Loop Playback so that you can see your animation
4 - Play
with and Modify your movie. Add as many Keyframes as you wish and
make the movie as long as you wish.
