Now imagine that the camera is stationary, and the film strip is flashing by very quickly, and on each film "square" is a stick figure that is moving, stop-motion style.
My question is, how can I do this without having to create a separate composition for each "square", because if I only use one composition, it'll change every square, instead of one at a time. Also I've found that I can't use a loop, because I need my stick figure parented to the square to move along with it, and I don't want my stick figure looping - I want him independent of the loop, moving on his own.
Could anyone guide me through this? I'm still fairly new to AE.
