When you make an animation, do you F7 every time to start the stick from scratch every frame, or use tweening or and other method?

Wow... Does that need clarifying?

Any answer helps! Thnx

F7 ftw.

Redraw everytime. Its a common question and that is the answer 99% of animators will give you.

F6 if you're lazy.

I do brush mainly though, so it's always redraw.

Are you kidding. If you ever have to intersect limbs, just highlight one and put it in a group. Next frame, move it and ungroup it.


TADA! Easy way of avoiding f7

Alright sweet this is really useful,
so if you were to, make a stick run across the screen, how much time would it take to draw a frame (without BG or anything) before moving on to the next?
Again, Thanks!

Wow, I seriously never thought of that before.

I used to tween the body and head (which were in one layer) and then make 4 more layers (LeftLeg, RightLeg, LeftArm, RightArm) I'd f7 everything but the body for every frame... Talk about a waste of space and waste of time.

Just thought I'd share that with you guys...

You pick up a few tricks once you've been line animating as long as I have =P

I basically use whatever I need to use, but yea, usually f7.

I do FBF, and so, i add a bunch of blank keyframes and when i need to go to the next, i just click on it.
