Chapter 18. The Movie Clip Symbol > Creating a Movie Clip

Creating a Movie Clip

There are two ways to make a movie clip in Flash; visually, or programmatically, using ActionScript. Let's start with the visual part.

To create a Movie Clip visually from scratch, select Insert > New Symbol, click the New Symbol icon in the Library panel, or choose New Symbol from the Library Options menu. When the New Symbol dialog appears, give the symbol a library name, choose the Movie Clip behavior, and finally, click OK. This is, of course, in simple mode. Advanced mode we'll talk about later.
