Hi. I'm following the tutorial "Making Your First Cartoon." Very helpful! Thank you. While your transitions between your puppet seem quite smooth from when he is in a scaled up version to when you see more of his body, my transitions for my puppet look quite clunky. The switch between the two perspectives doesn't seem smooth. I was able to follow your instructions of how to make the staircase effect of bringing in and out the different layers of each perspective but I wasn't sure if there was anything else to apply to help the transitions from one layer to another seem more seamless?

Again--many thanks for your tutorial video. I'm a total novice and have been able to make much progress following your instructions. Thank you!

I think those were just straight jump cuts, so really I'd say just make sure each scene is significantly scaled (maybe 40%+) and the character is centered. If the character is in different areas or the scale change is tiny, that can tend to look more choppy. Hope that helps a little!

Thanks! I didn't have the character centered so I'll give that a try.
