Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Intro to overlapping hair, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
In the previous section I showed you how to take a single image, like the hair…level, and to use the Envelope tool to shape tween the different shapes.…The only problem with that was that it felts like, obviously, we were working with…a single shape that being tweened at the different forms; it does feel a little…static, even though it is kind of nice just to be able to push it that much.…So there is a way, fortunately, that we can still use this system, but have a…little more flexibility. And what you're seeing here is the same original shape of that hair,…but what we've done instead of having the whole thing on one layer is split it…up onto several different layers, as well as adding a new little forelock here…to vary the head and the whole structure little bit better.…
So what you can see down here in this folder -- I've guided out the original…animation layers. Let me show you them first.…As you can see this looks pretty much like the preceding section that we did,…and what I've done is then copied these layers, hairs 1 through 4, to this section,…
