This is one of the most discussed topic about anime studio, which is how to create a head turn. As part of this tutorial, I created a character from scratch and make a head turn by means of using blend morph and layer ordering. In connection to this, fully body turn can also be achieved using this feature.
This tutorial covers vector point animation, the use of action presets for blend morph and layer ordering to hide shapes when needed during the head animation. I could say that animating head turn in anime studio pro 8 can be achieved a lot faster than flash.
