It's easy to make a moving animation within a map. Follow these easy steps!
1) Make a common event and name it torch. Put the following as the code in the event.
2) Pick an animation that uses the first part of the character on Light 1. Set the event to Parallel and have it activate when Light is activated.
3) On the map make the switch activate.
4) On the torch character sheet set it to parallel also and for the event set it to call common event Light.
5) That's it. Your animation should now work.
