Let's have a look at what we should have so far - two square graphic symbols and one movie clip.
  1. Now make two more movie clips and name the first green,and the other one red.
  2. Put the green square symbol graphic in the movie clip named green.
  3. Put the red square symbol graphic in the movie clip named red.

    Note: Make sure they are centered on the registration marks.
  1. In the Main timeline create 4 layers. Name them like this....
  • green square
  • red square
  • processor
  • status

Now open up your library (Ctrl+L). This will list all the symbols you have made.

  1. Take the Movie clip named processor and put it in the layer called processor.
  2. Take the Movie clip named green and put it into the layer called green square.
  3. Now take the Movie clip named red and put it in to the layer called red square.
  4. Next give the instances of the movie clips red and green names. To do this select the movie and choose Modify > Instance. Keep it simple, name the movie clip red (instance name red) and the movie clip green (instance name green).
  5. Click on the text tool icon and then click the text field modifier below the tool bar.
  6. In the layer called status, drag the mouse across the work area to create a small text field box.
