I have found it easier to plan a walk cycle in flash on a single point with the feet sliding backwards. This time I decided to see what i could get away with not hand animating with it still looking convincing. I think the torso can stay rigid but it would have been good to get a bit of movement i the head and neck.
I also discovered that because its animated mainly on twos, you can't drag the character across the screen. you need to move everything else. i did the background more as an afterthought but can see the potential for doing it this way.
