Note to Animate CC users, regarding the sample FLA files

All sample FLA files are in Flash 8 format for compatibility with older versions of Flash.
When you first open one of these files, Animate will show a generic message:

Just click OK and save the file in the newer Animate format. The message will not appear again.

The character Flash builds above are designed to be used for test or educational purposes only.
Selling them or using them in commercial projects is strictly prohibited.


You're the best! Perfect Tools. Thanks!

I was using your tools and was so happy about them!
Unfortunately in the latest Prerelease build CC19 (build M9) some of them stopped working. One important tool is Timeline Block To Symbol, which now just crashes Animate… Is there any chance there will be an update for this?

Hello Danas!

Glad to hear you like the tools!

It will be rushed and premature to try to write fixes before Adobe have a stable release of CC19.
These pre-release builds are not even alpha and they keep fiddling with all kinds of things all of the time, breaking transformation matrices, etc.

You may also realise that none of the CC19 new functionality (layer parenting, tagged swatches) is available to control via the API. We have tried to speak about this with the dev team in Bangalore with no results for now.

Best regards!

Hi again, Danas,

Timeline Block To Symbol does not seem to be crashing in the newly released CC 2019.

For all the rest, for now, please refer to this note:

Thank you so much for these! I'm just starting to teach myself how to make cartoons in Flash and this looks like it will be incredibly helpful in the learning process.

You're most welcome, mate!

Since you're just starting check out the step-by-step tutorial on how to set up your characters for animation and also the fundamental article on Classic Tween workflow.

Good luck!

Thank's for the tools they are awsome, i'm just asking myself if there is a video that shows how to use face emotions by breaking the symbol on the robot puppet…

Hi mate,

There is nothing special about the break-apart workflow. Head angles are just wrapped inside a common container to avoid symbol swapping. When you break apart you end up with one head container that has all facial features inside.
You run this in sync with your character timeline and change facial expressions when you need inside the head.

More information is available here and here.
