    smoothness confusion

    hi all,
    i havn't been animation very long and i'm just a bit confused with smoothness of an animation.

    i've been through quite a few tuts, but none helped.

    the problem is, i know the more frames you use to make a single action the smoother it'll be... right? but sometimes when i use a lot of frames, the animation feels really slllooooooooow.... and thats on 1 frame speed. then sometimes when i use fewer frames, it kind of stutters during the animation...

    can any one help me with balancing speed with smoothness?

    thanks in advance

    Truthfully, the only way to get smoothness (or any other thing in animation for that matter) down, is to practice. Sure tuts. help, but you just have to animate it all yourself to figure out how much an arm or leg etc, needs to move. that's the nice thing about pivot, or any other program that I know of, is that you can edit frames once you've made them. just practice.

    sorry I'm just giving you all this BS and not telling you how to make things smooth but not slow like you ASKED FOR

    try animating with the frame rate bar in the middle(its default location) thtas the best thing to do......but make sure you make pretty small increments when moving the sticks......i make some really smooth ani's like this.....
