im not sure how to slow down the frame rate. Could someone help please.
The frame rate can be adjusted in the animation properties. Go to the File menu and select Animation Properties then change the Frame Rate in the dialog box.
But I suspect that you really don’t want to slow down the frame rate but that you are really wanting to know how to control the speed of the actions that you are animating. The frame rate is a constant that is used to calculate time not to control timing. You might want to read this series of articles, which I wrote, on animation timing as they will help you get a handle of timing and spacing your actions. UNDERSTANDING TIMING IN ANIMATION PART 1.
Also you might want to read TBS THE BASICS PART 1 , which I also wrote, for some insight into adjusting and tweaking the timing of an action in TBS. -JK
