Hi everybody.

New Qouetion from me..

(it is getting boring i know)

Anyway.

On pivot you have one-way looking stickman that you can only move parts off them. How can i make a stickman of this type at flash?

You know the self drawing stick's are definatle not easy to make them look the same... Please send a tutorial or somethin

Well if you have Flash CS4 you could use the rig tool and give a stick man bones. I wouldn't do that personally because It's not very stable but thats the closet you're gonna get to emulating Pivot on flash.

I use flash CS4 yes but The tool I prefer is the Brush Tool. Takes practice but you'll get good with it, especially if you have a tablet.

yeah but ll the stick movies that i can see at stick fights are maid with some kind off way that all the stickman can have only one sise off hands feet e.t.c.

That's why i'm asking ( also i don't know how to use the bone tool)

They're not. Every stick movie you watch will be redrawn frame by frame. They just get really good, through practise, at drawing the limbs exactly the same size each time.

You have to put a lot of time into animating to make it look good. There isn't a way to get out of working hard without making your animation look like shit... just redraw.
