on stuff like scenes where they are just talking, yes. Why? Because you can easily make it SEEM like they are moving a lot more with little more effort than just a still frame with a mouth. But when they are fighting or a full body motion or running around, no
its easier to just go frame by frame with things like that.
so for like head talking shots I will probably end up animating like this, and for more motion shots, frame by frame.
Ahh interesting I'm still unfortunately pretty new when it comes to using flash, and I used to animate frame by frame but I repeated things a lot. So I've been poorly attempting to experiment with different methods. Thanks for the input bro. interesting stuff.
