Copying "cut-out"poses?

I’ve only been working in Animate 2 for a couple of weeks now, although I’ve been working as an animator for quite a while.
I’ve been working on a cut out animation and can’t seem to find how to copy the figure’s pose from one frame to another so I can make a seamless looped cycle.
Searching through the help docs hasn’t helped much on this one.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I can realign everything manually using the onion skin as reference, but it seems like there should be a simpler way to do this.


If you’re doing cut out animation and everything is key framed in one frame, you can copy and paste the frames like anything in windows. If you have a hierarchy and something at the top and you collapse everything under it you can keyframe everything at once and copy it all at once and paste it.

Hope this helps…


Collapsing before copying is what I was looking for.
I had been copying the keyframes layer by layer and it was getting kind of tedious.

Thanks! ;D

Exactly. Collapse everything inside the master peg/drawing. Select the first keyframe and to a Ctrl+C. Then select where you want to paste it and do a Ctrl+V.
