    Bending Lines

    I want to make some stick aminations. I've been watching stick aminations for a while, but since I started using Flash I've noticed some helpful techniques. One, that I noticed on NewGrounds, is to have only one part for arms and legs (I was having an upper arm and a lower arm, which was a pain in the ass) but when you want the arm to bend... you simply bend the line. I tried to do it, but once the motion tween was set, I coulnd't bend the line anymore (click the line and drag it to a curved line). Not to be a retarded dip****, but does anyone know how to allow lines to bend when in a motion tween?

    o... can shape tweening also move, or if not, can motion tween happen at the same time?

    Just right click in the frames and then click create motion tween....then in the properties panel, click the little arrow beside tween where it's defaulted to motion, and select shape instead...if this is unclear, let me know.
