How do I even make proper Animations?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:59 pm

There aren't any tutorials which actually help with how you're supposed to edit the legs and arms to make good animations efficiently. I have no idea how to move the legs and feet (from a basic stickman and definitely not an image)properly.

How do people know how to model the legs and arms?

Well , that's not something you should not do in C2 ...
You should instead use some animation programs like Spriter

Here's an image on the movement of the body ...

Animating a character is quite hard task for someone who never done this before.

Erm... that program is really old and when I click the link it says it's not available.

But I'll try Spriter since you can customize the animations.Murad962013-02-22 13:51:09

I'm using Spriter and it's still so hard to make anything good. Walk cycles are useless because you have to remove the background with Paint.net, then you put them on Construct 2 and every time I turn left the player teleports like two metres.

I believe all of those walk cycles on the Internet are for you to use as a model or template. There shouldn't be any backgrounds to remove if you are making your own art. Spriter works fine for me in C2... are your animations centered in Spriter? Like where the horizontal and vertical lines meet? Each of those frames in the walk cycle should overlap--not be spread out side-to-side.

But animation takes practice.
