Last night I browsed through the Adobe Illustrator CS Wow! book and read a chapter on “Making Artwork for a Flash Animation“. This was the only chapter on using Illustrator in combination with Flash but it is exactly what I was looking for. Today I got the Amazon book I ordered on using Flash with After Effects, “Flash + After Effects” by Chris Jackson. I want to have all the After Effects books available because I’m putting a lot of effort into mastering that software but I managed to overlook this book. It was published in 2008 so maybe it just wasn’t available until recently. According to this book there is an amazing new set of Puppet tools introduced in After Effects CS3. The Puppet tools allow you to animate the joints of a character.
