And I’m calling this an in-between and not a breakdown because there’s not going to be any major movement. It’s actually easier, I’m sorry, if you disabled Onion Skinning first so you can get a sense of that animation. My first in-between is probably going to be closer to the red drawing or the drawing in Frame 1 and my second drawing is going to be slightly closer to the green drawing or the drawing in Frame 4.
What you should do in order to not play from 1 to animtae, because if you do that you’re going to have a lot of blank space, is to grab this little black triangle, I’m not sure if you can see it, and drag annimate.

Another thing you can do is toggle between the two drawings, either by grabbing the red playhead and just moving back and forth like this.
