Flash MX Shape Tweening Basics
Mr. Skocko Room 246 • 593-5446 • Mac LabValhalla Home


This one's as easy as it gets

Here's what we'll make:


Draw a circle on the Stage (no stroke)


Control-click down the Timeline and Insert BLANK Keyframe


You don't see anything because it's a BLANK keyframe


Draw a square on the Stage (in the Blank Keyframe)


Click on Frame 1 and look at the Properties Panel (below)


Select Shape Tween


Your Timeline should look like the one below (green = shape tween)


That's it. Hit Return (or Command Return) to see your movie (I told you it'd be easy)
