Character Movement

How do I make my character move from one frame to another?



-Teddy L.

Either, (the easy way) create a Motion Path for your character…
Then drag him/her across the screen by setting key-frames…

Or, slightly more convincing…
Draw a walk-cycle on the spot frame by frame, then cycle those drawings as many times as needed, then attach this drawing layer to a peg and move it across…

(no sound, it’s all fairly simple and self-explanatory)
