Lesson 9. Creating a Flash Movie > Lengthening a Movie with Static Frames

Lengthening a Movie with Static Frames

To plan for the changes of the movie over time, you need to add frames. Before adding frames, you at least need an estimate of the total run time of the movie (the time it takes for the movie to run from Frame 1 to the last frame in the timeline). By default, Flash plays 12 frames per second, or fps; therefore, if you want to create a movie that runs for 5 seconds, you'll need approximately 60 frames in the timeline. The movie as it stands is three frames long; the movie would take about .25 seconds to play through.

TIP

You can change a movie's frame rate by choosing Modify > Document from the main menu. The default 12 is a good bet for most Web animations, though.
