In this video, learn about adding breakdowns to flesh out the action.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie, … we drew three key frames. … And again, I'm using F2 and F1, … which are my custom shortcuts. … So the next step will be to add some breakdown drawings. … Let me look at the thumbnails again, … and our breakdown would be number seven and number 11. … It won't be much. … I'm going to do a very basic breakdown, nothing fancy. … So, how do we do this? … Because this is very much an in-between, … between one and nine. … So what I like to do is to make one, two, three, … four clean slots. … Here, I'm going to simply hide everything. … So I have a visual break … and then here, we're going to be adding a new frame, … number seven, so we're going to go from one. … We make a new one here, seven, … and let's color code this red, … so it really stands out as a breakdown. … So, one thing to watch out for is … when you add a new drawing, … it's propagated throughout the entire timeline. … So, let's just hide it … and then we'll go back to here. … Our first frame will be number one. …
