Im working through classroom in a book for adobe flash cs3 and some things it asks me to do doesnt have an explanation as to why im doing it, i just wodered if anyone mght have some answers so I can understand what im doing and use the things I learn in my own projects.
anyway, first question is
im doing a little animation where i move an aliens arms up and down, to move the let arm at a keyframe it asks me to rotate in the transform panel, but to move the right arm it asks me to select skew and change the horizontal and vertical skew, why not use the same for both, either skew or rotate, it doesnt explain why use one for one arm and one for another
also it confuses me when it asks me to click the instance of something, is there a reason it doesnt just say click the alien rather than click the alien_mc instance
thanku, i may have further questions as I go on, but this is all i have right now
