Presentation Transcript

  • Meaning: transforming a shape into another.

  • Create a new layer within a new doc. Make sure you have a first frame to draw into, otherwise, press F6.

  • Draw one shape of any kind on frame 1. Then go to say frame 30, press F6 to define a frame.

  • Once defined, delete the shape u drew on frame 1, and draw a different shape on frame 30.

  • Upon completion, you’ll have 2 different shapes.

Simple movie clip animation
SimpleMovie Clip Animation

  • Create a shape, then draw the details to represent a smiley.

  • For the eyes, convert the layer into a movie clip.

  • Open it, and insert a key-frame (F6), and adjust the eyes.

  • Create a mouth - > Convert to movie clip - > insert a keyframefurther right - > tweak it to represent a smile - > apply a motion tween.


  • Bring a picture to the stage.

  • Create a new layer with a defined shape. Right click on the layer and select mask.

  • It’s a mask, but static.

  • Insert keyframe, say frame30. for both the picture & the shape.

  • Tweenthe shape and voila. You have a tween and a mask.

Masking text

  • Identical to that of shape masking

  • Here, you can make letters appear one by one and with some gradient effect.

  • Define some text on a layer, and a shape onto another layer.

  • Make the shape start from the left end and arrives to the right end.

  • Apply a motion tween. Right-click and set the layer to mask.

  • Switch the layers and experiment with a slightly different effect

Basic motion

  • On frame 1, draw a circle.

  • Insert keyframe on frame 30. select the latter and move the shape to a different position.

  • Right click on any frame between 1-30 and select create motion tween.

Color animation

  • Create a shape.

  • Insert a few keyframes, and on each , keyframe, change the color of the shape.

  • Use a color for like 2-3 frames, instead of a frame for one color

Fade in fade out
Fade In Fade Out

  • Fade in: alpha goes from 0 to 100.

  • Fade out: alpha goes from 100 to 0.

  • Create a shape or some text.

  • Convert to symbol - > graphic right away.

  • Place a keyframe further up the timeline.

  • On frame 1, set alpha to zero, and on the last frame, set alpha to a 100. right click anywhere in between the frames and create motion tween. Play it.

Button s properties
Button’s Properties

  • Define a shape and some text within a layer.

  • Select all - > convert to symbol - > button.

  • Double click and enter the button’s features.

  • 4 features : up, over, down, hit.

  • Insert keyframes for the rest and alter the colors etc.

  • There you have a button. Just add some AS to trigger an action

Zoom effect
Zoom Effect

  • Truly simple.

  • Create a shape, very small one on frame 1.

  • Add a keyframe on frame 30. Then select and scale up the shape you just did.

  • Properties - > tween - > shape

  • Zooming out follows the exact opposite of zooming in. Begin with a bigger shape and end with a smaller version of that shape.

Button action sound animation
Button + Action + Sound + Animation

  • Define 4 layers. (button, sound, animation, action)

  • Button Layer: create play, pause and stop shapes. Then convert each to a button. Add the scripts as shown.

  • Click on each and insert the action as shown.

  • Sound Layer: first import a sound to library - > go to properties - > sound - > select from drop down list.

  • Animation layer: create a simple tween.

    From frame 0-60.

  • Action layer: add a stop on the first frame.

The final piece

  • A simple way to present and design things. All layers play according to their entry in time. Thus, you control what comes at a certain point in your movie.

  • The file is given for you to study it…and share it this knowledge to each other.
