Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating overlapping hair, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
So now I'm going to recreate the animation of the hair so that you can see…exactly how it was done.…So first thing we have to do is simply clear these layers.…So I'm going to right-click; clear those keyframes. And we have the hair forelock;…I am going to keep the first frame with that.…And there is this lower level for the hair.…So am going to keep the first frame for that.…Just get rid of all of the subsequence.…
And I'll work within this section here, the guided out hair, and I'm going to get rid of these.…So basically all we have now are four layers of hair; pretty much…identical to the one we saw in the first of the hair shape tweening lectures, and…all I've done is broken it apart at certain points. I could've made three cuts,…I could have made two.…In this case, I thought four was kind of a happy medium.…So that's why we have four layers here.…Now when we begin to animate this -- I've already preanimated at the top here …this S curve level, and this is the kind of thing I'm trying to match.…
