In lesson two it got a little bit more complex. It involved creating a basic motion tween on a movie clip. Then entering the movie clip, importing movie clip objects given to us in illustrator and creating a repeating animation within the original movie clip by moving each individual componant on the spot. We learnt about onion skinning which shows the surrounding frames so that you can move them slightly, as an illustrative animator would do.
I then created my own movie clip sections in illustrator to create my own character and animated him in the same way.
