- [Instructor] Before we begin animating, … I want to show you some of the pitfalls, … very important features that could be very helpful, … but are also kind of dangerous. … So, I'll switch off the thumbnails. … I'm going to make a new layer … and I'm just going to draw a ball. … So, let's say we start making new exposures. … I'm going to make these both 1/10 of a second, … and on the second exposure, … again I'm using F1 and F2 to toggle from one to the other, … let's say on the second exposure, I move the ball. … This is great. … Now I can even begin to think about doing … some simple animations without even drawing. … I can just reposition this thing. … What's happening here is that each exposure … allows the layer to have a different position. … So, you can do all these things with it, … and it will allow you to do simple positional animation … if that's what you want to do. … The danger with this is you accidentally move the object. … So, I'm going to delete these … and make a new layer. …
