Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to staggers, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
This section should be fun;…it's about staggers and doing really quick vibration effects.…When you work in animation I guess there is this question: should you work in 2D or 3D?…The thing I like about Flash, sometimes, is it does make certain things easier than…they might be, I think, in 3D, and one of them is working with staggers, and…controlling staggers.…The one on the left, the red ball, is the simplest of all staggers. This…kind of staggers often done for screams, like you can imagine that being a…person's face going aah!…The one in the middle is the diving board, and that's a little more intricate.…
That's going between two states, up and down, and finally settling in to one.…It's great for springs, and some mechanical effects.…And the little green character walking that we previously animated; that is a…bit of palsy. It's like a person with a tremor, or a shake, or it could even be a…character leaning into the wind, and you can almost feel the gale force blowing at them.…All these staggers use the same basic technique, at least in Flash the way we are…
