Chapter 8. Frame-by-Frame Animations > Creating In-Between Frames

Creating In-Between Frames

The frames that appear between keyframes are in a sense tied to the keyframe that precedes them. They display its content and allow you a space in which to create tweened animation (see Chapters 9 and 10). Flash makes the connections between these frames clear by highlighting them and placing a hollow rectangle at the end of the keyframe span.

To add in-between frames:

1.
Create a new Flash document with keyframes and content in Frame 1 and Frame 2.

2.
In the Timeline, position the playhead in Frame 1.

3.
From the Insert menu, choose Frame, or press F5 on the keyboard.

Flash adds an in-between frame (Figure 8.9). Your movie now contains a keyframe at Frame 1, an in-between frame at Frame 2, and another keyframe at Frame 3.

Figure 8.9. The Insert > Frame command adds an in-between frame after the selected frame. Unlike Insert > Keyframe and Insert > Blank Keyframe, which merely convert a selected in-between frame or protoframe to a keyframe, the Insert > Frame command actually adds a new frame to your movie.
