It can be a bit annoying when you have to click the next frame each time.
The shortcut for going to the next frame is dot key = . or the previous frame is comma key = ,
Always name your layers even if its boring work, it can save you a lot of time searching
in the future when going back to animating.
For stick animating i use framerate 24 fps = 24 frames per second. 24 fps is the most realistic when you want to see nice and clear movement. Yes it goes really fast, but thats why you will need to animate frame by frame. Of course you can use the motion tween or classic tween for straight movement, but diagonal and dynamic movement you will need to do it frame by frame. Yes in CS 4 you can do diagonal tweening with motion tween, but i find it hard to finetune it. I have the feeling i have more freedom with frame by frame animation to do dynamic animation movements.
Work hard and get better each time if its animating you really like to do.
