excuse me? I need some help with backgrounds. Normally when I do mlp animations I copy +paste bgs, and use them that way.. *Sigh* Obviously that is not a professional way to animate, but I don't know how to do any other way. Say for example, I have a house, in ponyville.  I wanna learn how to animate the ponies going behind stuff like the house to make it seem more realistic. can any pony here help me or make a tutorial for me?

If you're copying somebody else's backgrounds, it's usually a single layer. You need to build a background with multiple layers in order to move characters around objects like that.

If you use vectors to make a background, you could take somebody's tree asset, for example, and add it to the background you are using as a separate layer. Then your characters could go in front or behind it depending on how you arrange the layers.

I don't know how active this group is but I was wondering if somepony could give me some information on how to start animating? 

I want to start with pointy ponies (… ) but I can't find anything.  :/

Unless you know someone who does that kind of animation and is willing to teach you, your best bet is to use google to do research and mess around in whatever animation program you have.

If you want to START with pointy ponies, you probably need a vector animation program or decent video editing software. Most of us use Flash. The newer, complex versions of Toon Boom I believe are also capable of puppet manipulation.

Either that or you can draw your pointy ponies out, frame-by-frame, in some drawing program.

If you know nothing about animation, my recommendation is not to buy anything and instead use what you have to see if you even like animating. You can animate in Windows Movie Maker and Paint or GIMP, or google for free animation programs.
