Your backgrounds have a really bad quality for one.
Go into the flash library and right click the background graphic, and go to properties, and for compression, pick Loseless(PNG/GIF)

Your pacing is like really slow, so you might want to consider going up to 30FPS.

Also, when you zoomed out at 0:28 (assuming you're using a V-cam) you should hold shift while resizing it because it looks weird when the aspect ratio shifts unevenly.

When you are shaking with the V-cam, you shouldn't do it that long, you shouldn't repeat frames, and you should move fast and abruptly, that way the shaking looks spontaneous and not repetitive.

Your alignment seems decent for the most part, but at certain instances you have misalignment that is overlookable for the most part, but you should use the onion skin and zoom in to see how off it is in the future

Other than that, pretty good job you have going so far.

Gotcha, but i tried to do so, but after i click properties, all i get is the option to change the graphic to a Button or Moive clip. There is also and advanced options button that lets me do stuff with the Linkage and Source for the background.

Jack up the speed, will do.

I do use V-Cam, so i will make sure to do this from now on.

Got it. I originally had that bit shorter but i had extended it for some reason that is now beyond the point of remembering, but, I had also had it shaking alot more violently but since it was only knuckles appearing and not something bigger, i toned it down

This bit actually makes me cry becasue i was onion skinning and zooming, but for a little while i was unable to onion skin, flash was kind of buggin' out on me, however i wasnt using onion skin to check if the future frame was aligned right, only to see where the past frame was.

Thank you for the tips, and i shall indeed go on about fixing thesee
