Chapter 5. Graphics on Multiple Layers > Working with Guide Layers

Working with Guide Layers

Flash offers two types of guide layers: guides and motion guides. Plain old guides can contain any kind of content: lines, shapes, or symbols. The contents of a regular guide layer merely serve as a point of reference to help you position items on the Stage. Flash doesn’t include such guide layers in the final exported movie.

Motion guides, however, do make up part of the final movie. Motion-guide layers contain a single line that directs the movement of an animated object along a path. (To learn more about creating and animating with motion guides, see Chapter 9.) Another distinction to remember is that Flash creates motion guides by adding a new layer directly to the Timeline. To create plain guides, you must redefine an existing layer as a guide layer.
