In this video, learn about drawing the main poses of an animation.
- [Instructor] We're finally ready to begin animating. … And the first thing we do is animate the keys … and that'll be number one, number nine, and number 17. … So, let's make a group, a folder here, … and we'll call this Animation. … And I'm going to make three layers, … and this will be number one, … this will be number nine, and number 17. … And the next thing I want to do is just switch off … these different exposures. … Make two new exposures here, … set this one as number one, … the second one will be number nine, … and the third one will be number 17. … Now, if you go to the thumbnail layer … and you want to hide it now, … then you can just hide that … and it'll disappear from all three. … And you notice how it's appearing on every exposure? … That's because of this feature here, Propagate Frame One. … If you don't like that, switch this off … and then switch off Propagate Frame One, … and then we can just make it appear on the first frame. … It looks a bit cryptic, but you'll get used to this. …
