I've started teaching a small group up here in sequential art and animation.
We decided that knowing how to import photos into Flash would be useful, as well as basic drawing and animation.
So I knocked up this screencast to support next Monday night's class. It goes through the steps of importing a photo, using the drawing tools to trace the photo image, adding colour to the line drawing, and creating a basic animation on top of the line drawing.
So grabe the PDF and the MP3 here that will introduce you to this process in Flash. (Right click the next two links and save them to your folder).
