Flash Walk Cycle Video Tutorials
So I'm still dead set on using Flash to animate my civilians and swap out assets to produce a lot of variety. At least that's the dream. The problem is that I'm not entirely comfortable in Flash. I constantly remind myself that it will be a struggle, but I'm greatly reducing my workload by taking the time to do it right on a template. Then its just pallet swaps and tiny details to give me the NPC's that will fill out my city. And what with me shrinking down the art (as I've done with the player character) each frame of animation is under a kilobyte. I'm pretty happy about that.
So I'm in the process of finding a reasonably thorough explaination of creating walk cycles in Flash. I found one on Lynda.com but was able to find the author's vimeo site which has a similar tutorial. Hoping this points me in the right direction.
