Hey Matt, here's the address for the tute Chicken/John made: http://athene.riv.csu.edu.au/~jgalvi06/Seminar/Website%20Complete/

Pretty schnazzy if I do say so myself.

Well anyways, one lil thing thats handy that people don't seem to know aboot is the edit multiple frames button thats just along from the various onion skinning buttons:
eg:
It works exactly like the onion skinning button except you can edit all the frames that you see. Simple yet handy, you want to resize your walk cycle?
Click the edit multiple frames button, drag the sliders to select the range of frames you want, turn off all other layers other than the one you wish to edit. Select all, then drag, resize, etc the frames all at once, and there you have it. Handy dandy and simple, yet often overlooked.


..I can't believe I said handy dandy

Yes, the dandy of handiness is unbelievable to me too, but thank you so much for this! I've been using Flash for over a year and a half now, yet I never knew about that.
Now THAT'S something that's gonna come in useful :)
Just in case people were wondering, it stands for 'At The Convenience Of The Experimenter.'

And now... this!

Yeah, I didn't know about that either - always thought it was just an onion skinning thing that showed every frame at 100% opacity... how wrong was I? Nifty hints John. Kudos!
