IV. Now it is time to create your Flash file. Launch Flash and create a new file called 'car_zoom'.
Next, set your movie properties in the Modify | Document menu. set your movie dimensions to 320 x 200px, with a frame rate of 24 fps

Next create a new movieclip called 'car_mc' . This can be done via the Insert menu | new symbol. Once you have created the movieclip, you must import your .png images into the library. To do this, go to the File | import menu and choose import to library. Select all the images you created and import them. Your library should be populated with these files:

Double click 'car_mc' in the Library to make sure you are in its timeline. Next start placing the images on the stage, one at a time as keyframes (Insert | Timeline | Blank Keyframe). Start with your non-blurred first frame and then place your blurred images, ending with your non-blurred end frame. This will create the moving forward sequence.

When you have finished the moving forward sequence, reverse the sequence to create the zooming out portion.
To add the reverse sequence, select all the all frames and click and drag them to the end of the timeline. Before letting go of the mouse hold down the Alt/OptionKey. You should see a '+' sign indicating you are copying the frames, not moving them over, then release the mouse button.

Next, we will reverse the frames. With the copied frames still selected, choose Modify | Timeline | Reverse Frames.
You should see the movement by scrubbing through the timeline.
