I'm a total beginner at animation. I'm about to start a project in Adobe Animate that will have two characters fighting. From what I've seen, a lot of people use symbols to break apart characters and animate individual parts. But... I would think it would be more complicated with the extra layers vs animating on one layer, especially since I don't plan on having anything loop (I also want to add full character motion blurs)... I'm talking only about characters, not background, etc
Would it be better to animate an entire character frame by frame or within a symbol in this situation?
