Chapter 8. Frame-by-Frame Animations > Previewing the Action

Previewing the Action

Though you can click each frame to preview a movie, Flash provides more sophisticated ways to see your animation. The Controller window offers VCR-style playback buttons. The Control menu has commands for playback. You can also have Flash export the file and open it for you in Flash Player via the Test Movie command. (For more details about Test Movie, see Chapter 13.)

To use the controller:

1.
From the Window menu, choose Control er (Mac) or Toolbars > Controller (Windows) (Figure 8.25).
