Experimenting

So I had an idea to combine elements of the frame by frame animation & the puppet style rigging in Adobe Animate. I thought it'd be an interesting look using software to automate the in-betweens and hand draw the detailed movements.

Do you have any advice to help build this technique? I'm still not as comfortable as I'd like to be in Animate so everything was drawn in Photoshop then imported in.

Is there a way to efficiently mask symbols and not have them layer locked?
