Help Animating Drawn Figures

hello, im quite the UBERNOOB at this, cus i just started recently. i have made flash before (simple, very simple and i was taking it further. i am making a music video using stick figures to system of a down - innervision. i need to a:animate the stick figures, so the motions look smooth and b: scroll things such as clouds etc

thank you

Well generally you’ll need to use tweens to animate stick men. A combination of both shape and motion tweens is best. Make symbols of all the main positions for arms and legs, then group them together in the main movie and animate from there.

It’s quite a time consuming process though.

thank you, i now understand. it is time consuming, but i have time hehe.
