Keyframing

I’m having trouble with the keyframe function. I drag my cut-out character onto the timeline, I set a keyframe at frame 1, I extend exposure to frame 20, set a keyframe at frame 20 and then I rotate my pivot points. But that just changes the drawing at frame 1. What am I doing wrong?

It sounds like you’re not using the correct tool to rotate the pivot points. I recommend the Transform tool (number 7 is the shortcut by default). I think you were probably using the Select tool and were changing the actual drawing instead of the keyframe for that element.

Give it a shot and let us know if that was it.

Yeah thanks, that was it.

Woo! Insert dance of joy!

Hmm, I think I may need to make a “dance of joy” animation for just such an occasion.
