Glad you guys like it!

@Atnas
I agree! The rocks don't really feel like they're magnets like they're supposed to. There's really nothing in the animation that would tell you about their magnetic property. I like the idea you came up with! One thing that concerns me initially is how much extra time/frames it would take to do that effect and get the magnets into position. I try to keep the animations from taking too much time, because I've read complaints from players that the animations go for too long and then they run out of time for their turn, or something like that. But thanks for the advice!
No need for a name change, I don't go by adcrusher524 anywhere else anymore, but that's alright. I sort of like it,haha.

RE: making the magnets feel more magnetic, it might help to do an effect sort of like this to give them more of a mechanical feel, I guess you'd call it?

just the stretched out double-image thing you see here, having it stop just as the lightning starts. Give it that extra bit of oomph.

My main takeaway from this tutorial was:

- Overshoot: Movement is stopped abruptly (by a wall for example)
- Ease Out: The Movement is prepared to be stopped (slowing down when approaching target position)

Thank you :y:

Really cool! Would love to see more (since as we all know, all animations offer their own unique challenges/learning opportunities) since it's rare to see walkthroughs by people already working at a professional levels, partly because, I guess, they're just too busy actually working! Thanks and I'll keep my eyes peeled for new installments!
Hope this little blurb finds you well! We've got a fun little series documenting our progress on our SNES puzzle throwback game here:

great process and tips man! thanks for sharing. Great tip about not basing your rough tweens on rough key frames, I hadn't really thought about that before but ive definitely seen how messy that can get. The bit about having to learn to redraw frames rang true for me too. I think that's in part because I use a mouse for absolutely everything, so redrawing can be a bit slow indeed. maybe its time to ditch it XD

Thanks for watching guys! I'm glad you could find something useful that you could take away from it. I have some ideas for future tutorials, but I probably won't start making another for a little while.
