Lesson 11. Optimizing Flash Content > Exporting Flash Movies

Exporting Flash Movies

Every time you choose Control > Test Movie, Flash creates a .swf file in the same directory as the .fla file. So if you look in your FlashTFS folder, you'll see several .swf files, each of which was created when you tested a movie. This procedure is just one way to create a .swf file. Another way to create a .swf file, as well as files in several other formats, is to export your movie by using the Export Movie command. You can use this command to give the .swf file a name other than the name of the .fla file.

In this exercise, you are going to break the zoo movie into three separate movies: the base movie (Actions, Background, and Soundtrack layers), the home-page movie (Bitmap Mask, Main Page Bitmaps, and Welcome Text layers), and the overlay movie (Guide: Panda, Panda, Logo, and Frame layers). You will then export two of those movies as .swf files.
