Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the mouth, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
In this section we're going to do the mouth, just a first, initial pass for the mouth …to set it up with its own layers for future detailed animation. …But for the moment there is one little thing I want to fix. When I initially laid in the …layers in the previous chapter I put the right ear and the left ear up at the top. …They're better off if they go down here. And if you think about it, they are going to need …these layers later on, because right now at the right ear, for example, if you imagine the …character looking a little further over this way, then that ear, definitely …it's going to be behind all of these guys.…
And as the head turns around later on when we begin animating and we begin moving the …head over here, then that ear is going to be on top. …So that's why I made these two different layers. …Let me just undo all that damage for a second. …So it's very easy when you begin doing this to get a little bit lost with, like of what …layer should this go on? …Basically as you go, on whenever initially it looks the best. …
