I downloaded after effects to be able to animate my own stuff, however... Now I'm afraid to play with it. :( I've been used to frame-by-frame animation that I've done by hand and played with the framerate in windows movie maker before now. I've looked at the tutorials and while it make sense it... doesn't? I can't find a tutorial that explains how I have to cut up the character in order to animate it well enough so that it sticks. Do I actually need photoshop for this or can I do it in a different program? (Say that one that came with my drawing tablet.) I just need a little help here. Oy. :( -G.R.B.
