Lesson 8. Storyboarding Flash Movies > Creating a Placeholder Graphic

Creating a Placeholder Graphic

With the basic document configured, you are almost ready to begin laying out the main design. This design will contain many, though not all, of the final elements that will appear in the Flash movie. Some elements will be animated, some will be interactive, and some will be static (they'll sit in place and do nothing else).

The catch is that some of the content that will eventually go into the Flash movie is not yet available to you. If you've ever worked on a publication or Web project, you've probably had the experience where you needed to mock up layouts and design directions, but you didn't have the final art ready. The solution is to use placeholder graphics—graphics that stand in place of the final content and which reasonably approximate the size and visual effect of whatever the final production content will be.
