Changing Illustrated Character Poses
What is the best way to change a character's poses on one slide? So far, I have just inserted separate poses and instances on the timeline, and controlled the expressions (states) using triggers. It works mostly okay, but it's hard to get them all aligned since poses differ.
Next, I tried inserting a character and using states to change the pose, thinking this was a clever idea. However, my normal character and state, which has a smaller width than all other poses in my states, stretches out when in playback. It looks distorted.
I'm trying to get a non-talking face for a bit and then talking, or asking, and then back to smiling when the audio is done. Just controlling the states works fine; it's just changing to multiple poses that seems to require multiple instances of the same character. Is this the best way?
