But you're not here to learn about science, oh no, I can hear you right now, sitting at your computer, contemplating clicking that back button as you mutter: science is gross. Yes, I hear you, and that is why I have prepared for you a step by step guide on how to animate walking sans science. No degree in physics required, just a love to animate and a want to learn. So if you're ready for some fun times (hopefully) and some learning (probably) then, let's jump right in, on y va!
Step 1: In the words of Scar the lion: BEEE PREEEPAAARED!!
Alright, so all you have to do to start is open Flash. That should be easy. Once the program has loaded, look for the Create New column and click ActionScript 3.0. This will open a blank document, BUT DON'T GET TOO EXCITED YET! Before you can start animating, you should think about where you plan to use your animation. I plan to upload mine to Youtube, so I'm setting my proportions to 1280p by 720p. This will make my canvas the perfect size to upload in high quality to Youtube. To do this, all I did was drop down the Modify menu in the top bar,and then choose Document. This gave me a window where I can input my dimensions. Once I was sure those were the dimensions I wanted, I clicked OK...and that was it! Operation Step One: Success!
