    Help with Stick

    Hey guys i have a stick figure which i am intending to use for an animation, all is going well but when i go into the next frame and i want to draw him in a different position i drag the squares to change the angle and lenth of him. I only want to change the angle not the lenth. is there any way i can lock the lenth of the object so i can just move the leg and change the angle off it or do i have to convert it to a movie clip or whatever?

    If anyone can understand what i am saying please help me :Oh No!:

    Thanks ZE4LAND

    Nope. We can't understand what you're saying. If you'd repost in a more understandable manner, people could assist you.

    Can I start by saying that is probably one of the most tedious and ineffective animation strategies you could implement in Flash?

    Don't use shape tweens. END OF.

    Frame by Frame is the way to go. Personally, I don't use tweens or motion paths or any of that crap.
