Character-Animation: Nested Symbols

Learn the essentials of using nested symbols for character animations.

Symbols play an essential role in Animate CC. They can be very helpful to create more complex animations because you don’t have to redraw every aspect of the character over and over again for every keyframe. Ideal if you want to animate different parts of a character at the same time.
