How to make changes for ONLY one frame in ImageReady

So I am making this animated gif with 6 animals that are placed offscreen, which I then tweened by position so they will move into the middle.

I can make adjustments of individual tweened frames using the Move tool, but I cannot use the Transform tool to make changes for only one frame. Using the Transform tool, all the frames get modified.

I want to slightly tilt each animal a little to the left or right in different frames, so when they are moving to the middle, they look like they are jiggling/wobbling to the middle.

It would be so easy if I could be able to edit only ONE frame, is there a way to do this? I am stuck.

-> the way a tween works is it takes the possions you place the layers in and calculates the frames inbetween for you. When you adjust part of a tween, you adjust the whole animation... -> solution -> in your animation pallet, simply animate frame by frame. Create a new frame, move a little, create another frame and move some more.... You can go back and add or delete or modify individual frames to get it smooth or add in the tilting or whatever...

Hope that helps a little -> j3one

If you don't want re-animate by hand try this... -> select the frame you want to change, and then copy the layer. Lets say the girafe or whatever is layer "1", copy it. We will call it layer "2". Using the eye beside the layer in the layers pallet, hide layer "2" on each of the frames exept the one you want to modify. On the one you want to change, hide the origanal layer ("1") and adjust layer "2" in any way. this will not wess up your tweem because it is a different layer.
