Is there a way in blender to view the last frame as an outline while on the current in adobe flash it's called onion skin this is useful so we can animate better and know where the last frame was instead of going back and fourth

When animating an armature you can use the ghost feature in the armature tab. The range value determines how many frames it will show at once.

And the result:

Update:

New result with your .blend:

  • $\begingroup$ didn't work i'm trying to view 7 while still on 8 as you can here gyazo.com/a0e65d015897d4defc0618d3187a9d21 $\endgroup$ – Waka Flocka Jul 7 '17 at 3:08
  • $\begingroup$ Looks like the range value is set to zero. Try setting it to something higher. I'll update the screenshot to make this more clear. Also try playing back the animation from the start. Sometimes the ghosting doesn't appear the first time you turn it on. $\endgroup$ – Lukas Valine Jul 7 '17 at 3:13
  • $\begingroup$ still not working also the maximum amount is only 30 my animation has 34 frames why is it only 30 the range i'm talking about $\endgroup$ – Waka Flocka Jul 7 '17 at 3:15
  • $\begingroup$ Its 30 frames relative to the current frame. If you're at frame 50 in your animation it'll show you frames 20 through 80. It shows 30 frames on the front and back of the current frame which would be a total of 61 frames. $\endgroup$ – Lukas Valine Jul 7 '17 at 3:17
  • $\begingroup$ If its still not working feel free to upload your .blend here: blender.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/344/… $\endgroup$ – Lukas Valine Jul 7 '17 at 3:22
