i need some help for my school project. I guess everyone knows the old Super Mario game for the NES. I'm trying to make a video with After Effects, that looks exactly like the game itself (Mario runs through a level).
I made a composition for the figure: the composition is a loop of the walk cycle from the figure.
Now my problem is that i don't know how to make Mario move on the map. My idea was to use a background of the whole level and just make a keyframe at the beginning and at the end of the picture so it scrolls.
Now i don't know what to do next: How can i make him move & jump? I tried to use Motion Path, but i can't make Mario stay "in the middle" of the screen. After a few sec he is squeezed to the right side. Also while he follows the motion path the movement is suddenly so fast, he looks like moving in triple speed.
