FINALLY BACK, SNITCHES!

'Kay, seriously back to business
*PLEASE NOTE: This is run on 'Windows XP'
Flash8 configuration may be slightly different on other computer systems like Windows 7



Here my Tutorial on sprite animation
It's a bit beginner, mainly starting off for people who don't know how to use Flash at all.

But over time more advance stuff like tweening, adding effects to objects and all that good shtuff will come along in later updates.


First step is: how to upload, copy/paste and animate sprites
Second step is: tweening, frame arrangement.
text bars and shtuff has been implemented in this one. :w00t:
Third step will be: Well, What do you decide? :?
Maybe more tips on tweening and a minor tip on battle/adventure scenes and story-telling.
And something on loading bars…

Menu and arrows has been added for easy navigation.
Credit has been added to Menu

Note or comment if any mistakes '3'

How do you select the sprites you want? I tried, and all it did was move the background.

You're not placing the sprites on the same layer as the background, are you? Make sure they are not on the same layer you're working with.

Otherwise they should be easy to select unless the layer is locked as well. Check if the layer is locked or not.

Let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps.

But also, I'm lost on the tweening. How am I supposed to add the extra sprites inbetween the two points?

My animation always goes by extremely fast, is that normal? can i slow it down any?

It might be going fast cause of the fps. trying lowering it and it should go much slower.
Reply
:iconm6ty4:
M6ty4 Featured By Owner May 5, 2013
my fps is 24, i thought you should stick between 24 and 30?

:icondigital-papercut:
Digital-Papercut Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's recommended, if it's too slow then speed the fps up, if it's too fast then extend the frame.

Hey, in the beginning there was a tails sprite that I hadn't seen before. Where did you find that?

Ongoing sprite project continued in MFZ Act5 ('bout 4 years running...)

That Tails is considered obsolete now, unfortunately.

What program do you use to edit your sprites? Photoshop or something else?
Reply
:iconraccoonshinobi:
RaccoonShinobi Featured By Owner May 4, 2012
I actually use MSPaint for spriting.
Recoloring and such I use either Paint.Net or Photoshop.
More so Paint.Net; I find using that a ton easier.

Like all things, it just take time and practice.

*small tidbit: you actually can copy and paste from mspaint once you adjust your c/p preferences in Flash.

Either that or select the bitmap the clipped sprites came in from the library tab and increase its size by 2000% on the stage.

As insane as that sounds, it works for me *makes a note to remake tut to explain*
