Puppet Jump


video
This is the first jump animation I did in Flash. I used the character my Professor provided for our class and began from there. I had to import the image as a bitmap and color it first. Then break it down to the head, neck, and foot. After putting them on separate layers I was able to create keyframes in the positions I needed and animate from there. Once the frames were all in place I used the transform and rotate tools to get the puppet to move how I wanted him to and at the desired speed. After getting the general positions and sizes I fixed the ease in and out, though there wasn't much to change to get it to look right. After that I tweaked the position of keyframes and poses on inbetweens.
