Go to the help file and read up on how the templates are designed for the animations. The easiest way to do this would be this = go to RPG MAKER. Go to resource manager then export pretty much any battle animation. Now go to photoshop or whatever image editing program you use. open the exported battle animation and then create a new layer over top of the battle animatiom. now design/cut and paste/ do whatever you want to get the images and paste them over top of the exported battle animation(make sure you have a transparent canvas and your image has know background its only transparent with the image in the middle). once you are satisfied with the amount of frames you have delete the first layer (the exported battle animations) and then either A) Go to rpg maker vx ace then resource manager --> battle animation then import your custome battle animation (MAKE SURE YOU SAVED IT AS .PNG SO YOU GET TRANSPARENCY, IF NOT YOUR TRANSPARENCY WILL SHOW AS WHITE OR BLACK). or Just save the .png file to my documents --> rpg maker vx ace --> youprojectfile --> graphics --> animations. Hope that helps.
