Ive used Adobe flash Cs3 animating these. Put it all together in Cs5 because im to lazy to transfere the code my friend made for me xD

NOW there is a lot more detailed info about what is what and so on, but I dont think I would get room for all that in here. There are rules upon rules for what a keyframe is and you have breakdowns xD BUT im not going into details. What I suggest for people who really want to get serious about animating and learning all the basic things is to buy a book called

The Animators survival kit by Richard williams. The animated version is more amazing, so if you are able to rent it at a library DO IT [link] All the things you need to know is in there xD

I just explained some stuff in this, hope it is helpfull for someone. *0* ignore typos

This is actually really helpful for me! I'm making an animation for my final year major design & technology project, so every bit of info I can get helps xD

I never realised that you don't have to do all of the frames sequentially, but that you can do just the main 'action' frames, so thank you for that, I will definitely try this way of animating ^^

I am glad to help! :D I remember back in the day when it clicked for me, I didnt understand it even when I saw it, but there were something my animation teacher said this one day that really made it click in place for me, and it helped me greatly!

dear griffsnuff, sorry for bothering you... but i din't understand one thing: the inbetweens, they are just a tool of adobe flash, or you actually need to DRAW them?
For example: the first animation has 5 keyframes and its moves very...hum...."cracked" xD meanwhile the smoothest (i think i wrote it wrong :C ) one has 15 keyframes and it moves very smooth~~
heh...sorry for the question...but this doubt is making me crazy!!! D:

No inbetweens means "drawings between the keyframes" you need to draw them yes xDD the more imbetweens/ more drawings the smoother it is.
