Ok, now everything is ready and we can make the circle move.

Notice the first (and only) frame of our move has a small black circle in it?

That is because there is now an object inside it (the circle)

What we need to do is right click later down the time line (say at frame 15) and select "Insert Keyframe". What flash has now done is copied our circle and pasted it in frame 15. We can edit the circle in frame 15 all we want and the circle at frame 1 will stay the same.


Select the circle at frame 15 and move it any were on the stage.

Right click on frame 14 and select "Create Motion Tween". Do the same for frame 15. What this has done is its told flash to fill in the movement beTWEEN the two keyframes (1 and 15).

Press Ctrl + Enter to see your flash move. It should all work now and it will loop over and over again until you stop it.

» 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.
