Chapter 2. Basic Tasks: Creating a banne... > Introducing layers and the timeline

Introducing layers and the timeline

The Timeline is above the Stage in the Flash workspace. The Timeline, which contains layers and frames, helps you organize assets in your document, and also controls a document’s content over time.

Flash documents can play over a length of time, like movies or sound, which is measured using frames. Layers are like transparencies that stack on top of one another, and each layer can contain images, text, or animations that display on the Stage. You’ll learn more about frames and the Timeline in Part 2 of this tutorial, “Basic Tasks: Creating a banner, Part 2” on page 43.
