animating a bird flight cycle tutorial

This is my tutorial on how to animate a bird flight cycle in anime studio. Bird flight can be difficult to animate in a 2D program like AS, since the perspective of the wings changes as they flap. Here is how I animate a flying bird in profile view in AS. 1. Draw and rig your bird with the wings in ...

Re: Get layer masking to work

Yes that's exactly what I have but it's not working the way you described. The switch layer still acts like it's set to "mask this layer." The switch layer sub layers are group layers. Is that a problem?

Get layer masking to work

I have a group layer with 3 sub layers. The top and bottom layers are vector layers, and the middle one is a switch layer. I have a masking system set up so the bottom and middle layers are added to the mask, and the top layer is masked. The problem is despite being added to the mask, the middle lay...

Re: Mask and Hide edge

If you have AS pro, I would reccomend using patch layers rather than layer masking to hide strokes between body parts. If you have AS debut and therefore can't use patch layers, I say upgrade to AS pro! I think you'll find it a lot easier than debut because it has lots of cool features including the...

Help! Depth shifting isn't working!

I use AS pro 10. When I click transform layer and press alt to change the Z position it's not working. It used to work but now it's not. How do I get it to work again? I keep holding down alt as I scale the layer!

Re: Use "colorize layer" to put a transparent fill over a la

How else would you get the black rectangle to appear only above the shaded layers without messing up the layer order?

Re: My animations become blurry when moving fast.

Check the layer settings and make sure motion blur is turned off maybe?

Re: My animations become blurry when moving fast.

What I'm saying is any object, animated or not, is going to look blurry when it's moving fast. It's just how the human eye works and it's why movies and animation work in the first place

Re: My animations become blurry when moving fast.

Use "colorize layer" to put a transparent fill over a layer

For example, how would I use the "colorize layer" option to put a TRANSPARENT black fill over a character to give the effect that the character is siluetted or in low light, but the black layer colorization is transparent so the characters facial features and stuff are still visible. When I make the...

Add points in the actions timeline

Sometimes when I'm in the actions timeline and working on a smart bone I realize I need more points but I hate having to go back to the mainline, add the points, and then go back to the actions timeline. If the delete edge tool is enabled in the actions timeline, why is the add points tool grayed ou...
