Today was a day to change from working on a light box, a traditional way of animating to scanning images to knowing the basics of flash software. I liked the way to select, deselect lines, to erase them, change them, to pull, swing around and draw animated forms on the software as it had a spontaneity as a drawing, like re arranging pieces of twigs, assembling to create an animated line.
I can not draw like the software but do see its ability to show each step of motion tweek, from one place to another but being accurate of each intermediate step. The software has to calculate each step with perfection of geometry and maths. It is regulated by a formula.
