Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Dos and don'ts, part of Rigging a Face in Flash Professional.
Before we go any further, I would like to make a quick comment about the nature of making …an animated figure in Flash. …It's not like 3D where you can build a beautiful rig and if you do it well enough, it will …be almost perfect, and it will do everything that you need it to do. …Flash is more like making a Frankenstein monster; you are patching together different bits and …pieces and sticking them together and trying to trick the audience in to thinking that …you have made a really unique character that's perfect. …And you really can do it, but just bear this in mind before you go too much further, so …don't feel bad if weird little things happen. It may not be your fault.…
It's just something that you have to work around, and that is what most of us have to …do most of the time. …And I would like to make some comments first as well, before we go even further than this. …There are some dos and don'ts that are very good to observe, and I have found this through …bitter experience. …Keep your file names short in the project library. …
