|Flash and Motion Tweens are a great combination for easily creating animation. All you need is a beginning position and an ending position and Flash will do the rest of the work. But how do you create more complex animations such as adding a walk cycle to a moving character? One way would be to use nested movie clips. The walking animation would be a movie clip that is nested in your character's main movie clip. |
Let's take a look at a simplified example of a blinking head which bounces across the stage. First we will create the blinking animation movie clip and then nest that inside the bouncing head movie clip.
