I was following the Walk tutorial and it was working well until I got to the background motion tween part. I followed the directions as explained but when I would view the finished animation the background did not move. Is there some kind of preset that may be preventing this to work properly?
you made a mistake with the background tween. check the tween in animate. does the background move? did you use the correct type of tween (motion, no keyframes added by you, or classic, you have more than 1 keyframe)?
I believe I followed the tutorial. I used a motion tween. I'll check on the keyframes. Maybe the first frame is a keyframe and that may be causing the tween not to render. Thanks for your feedback...
the first frame that contains the object you want to tween must be a keyframe. your layer with the motion tween should look something like layer_1:
Thank you for your responses. I was able to animate the background, thanks for your feedback. I have another issue that you may have a solution for. When I export as an animated gif, the export window is too large for my screen and I am unable to see the SAVE button. Someone suggested I press my ENTER key even though I can't see the bottom of the window. That helped but I am wondering what may be preventing me to see the full screen.
