Chapter 8. Working with Elements on the Stage

Chapter 8. Working with Elements on the Stage

What you'll learn…

Selecting elements

Working with groups

Placing elements on the stage

Transforming elements

Watch almost any kind of artist—from a painter to a sculptor to a musician—and you'll see that regardless of their medium, they have one thing in common: an extraordinary command of their work environment and tools. In fact, an understanding of these tools and mediums is what gives these artists the confidence and proficiency they need to produce works of greatness.

For Flash artists and developers, the stage and its elements represent the digital canvas. The stage is where you make the visual elements of your project come to life; thus, understanding how to work with elements on the stage is an essential part of becoming a proficient animator and interactive designer.

In this chapter we'll show you how to work efficiently within the Macromedia Flash authoring environment as well as how to manipulate the elements you've learned to import and create.
