I work with the line tool a lot so using the pencil tool has a better feel for when I am drawing out sketches

Doesn't Hyun use the Brush tool?

Also guys, how do you preview an animation again? All these things to press is confusing me.

Edit: That first question just reminded me... is it even Hyun that animates the animations anymore or does he have a team to do it?

CTRL+Enter, or you could just press enter.

And I believe he still animates himself. But then again, I may be wrong. Haven't seen anything from him in a long time.

He streams often now.

The pencil tool isn't the pen tool

Doesn't the pencil tool basically work as if it was a pen tool as well tho?

I'm not sure you guys know what I'm talking about when I say the pen tool, does flash 8 even have it?
also, Hyun does all the animation, as far as I know, someone else does the BGs and Mccool does the effects for him

How do you guys animate in Flash without it looking all scribbly and shit. If I use the brush tool, the lines curve from pressure, making the body look weird.

If I use the line tool, I like to turn off the "magnet" option, which clings the lines to pre-made joints, but when making a line, it will attach to the "guide lines" I put in the background to help keep my proportions the same. Even when I put the "guide lines" on a separate layer and lock the layer. Any suggestions how to make the figures look less sloppy?

Well it mostly just depends on how steady your hand is Raymond, you can also change the settings of how smooth it is
Don't worry, you'll get used to it eventually bro

Or use the line tool if you're impatient lmfao
