Animating Using Symbols

You can use symbols to animate your puppet. Symbols are boxes in which you can place whatever you feel like. You can use the symbols to create reusable animations such as blinking.

A symbol combines animation, artwork or layers into a single object that you can control in one layer. You can also create symbols out of each body part in your cut-out puppets.

To do so, you can either duplicate an existing symbol or create a new blank one in the Library. You can then drop the symbol anywhere in your animation.
