In ActionScript 2, there was a practically unlimited number of depths into which you could place an object. These depths determine what objects appear in front of other objects. An object with a depth of 100, for example, would cover up an object with a depth of 50. But in ActionScript 2, these depths didn't have to be consecutive. In other words, if you only had 2 objects on the stage, you could very well set one of them to a depth of zero and set the other one to a depth of 1000.

You can cover the cycle of a full stride in 8 frames, as demonstrated by the above walk cycle--the Preston Blair walk cycle, one of the most common reference images in cartoon animation. I won't be quite so cruel, but I do think that you'll learn this best if I don't do every tiny step for you and let you work some things out for yourself.
