    Same thing. No project files.

      There isn’t any project files for this one as we decided that including any animation data would be too tempting for people to submit it as their own work.

      The actual exercises (which are different) can be downloaded from the exercise page.

      If you wanted to recreate this one, it’s similar to most of the other multiball exercises starting points except the background has 2 platforms.

    I have the same problem as rreynold333: I cannot find the source file for this lesson, just the ones for the exercise.

    In the action editor, is there a difference between using g and e to add frames?

      The only difference is that G will move ALL the keys you have selected and E will only move the selected keys on the side your mouse is located.

      Using E is more flexible because you don’t have to deselect things all the time.

      Hope that makes it clear.
