The Timeline

As mentioned earlier, the Timeline is made up of two major components: frames (at the right side of the panel) and layers (the left side of the panel.) These two key attributes of the Timeline let you organize and view the construction of a Flash movie. The numbers above the Timeline in multiples of five indicate frames—one of the major building blocks of a Flash movie.

Frames

A frame in Flash is the equivalent to a cell in film. Frames are what give a Flash movie its duration. The more frames you add, the longer your Flash movie will be. You can add, delete, move, cut, copy, clear, and/or paste frames anytime.
