haha....

I actually bought a graphic tablet just for this trials over the weekend and then realised that...i dont really need to use the tablet much. Editing was really easier than i expected with just plain mouse....

Anyway...great inputs from you all. I will be slotting more frames between the transitions to have better smoothness.

Seems like you left out the tweening of the motions. You'll need to learn how to use motion tween to give a smooth flow to your animation..

Graphics tablet aren't really useful for this kind of art. They're more suited for painting or when repetitive stokes of motions are needed. You'll need to practice alot on using the tablet to get used to it.

Haha... cheapo tablet lah.....

Anyway, in some cases motion tween is not the best solution....
If you know how to use it properly, it will be. Use motion tween, then add key frames in-between the motion tween to fine tune it. For those that needs deformation, use shape tween.

Hi Bro,

Yup...i did drew the graphics myself. Kinda hard though to draw it on tablet. But fixed the problem by placing a piece of paper over the tablet haha. The little clip initially started with the boat only. Then it grew forward and backwards into the scene in the room and the sunrise...into the little clip today....
