If you've created an animated sequence on the Stage and want to reuse it elsewhere in the movie, or if you want to manipulate it as an instance, you can select it and save it as a movie clip symbol.

To convert animation on the Stage into a movie clip:
Import a gif.file (a moving graphic) example: Bfly.gif into your movie.

If you were to place this gif file in frame one of your movie the Bfly.gif would flap it's wings but remain in place. the procedure below will show you how to get the Bfly to move It's wings and fly across your screen.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
