Lesson 3. Using Symbols and the Library

Lesson 3. Using Symbols and the Library

You've learned how to use Flash's tools and panels to create, modify, position, and import basic elements—such as text and graphics—for your Flash movies. Even using simple elements, your movies can quickly become large and complex. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use symbols, libraries, and the Movie Explorer to manage your movies and keep them small, fast, and organized. You will also learn how to use and import bitmaps.

This is what the ZooMX Web site will look like after this lesson. Chrissy Rey
