How to animate a walk cycle in Flash V8. The principles are applicable to most versions of Flash.

UPDATE: since creating this tutorial, I've been hired by to author several courses there. You can find links to my Lynda courses on my animation blog

This tutorial uses shape tweening, motion tweening and nested symbols to create a fully animated walk cycle that doesn't look like the usual symbol animation.

In part 1 you'll see an introduction to the walk, the setup of the characters, and the first steps in the process - creating the contact poses that will establish the feel of the animation.
