Summary

We covered a lot of material for something that appears to be a simple interface component—layers. It's hard to say that layers aren't primarily for visual stacking, because that's exactly how they work. Remember that grouping shapes (or, better yet, putting them in the Library) also lets you stack them (within one layer). However, creating separate layers is sometimes more convenient.

Layers are useful for more than creating the layering effect, however. The number one rule of Motion Tweens requires that only one object (an instance of a symbol) be tweened per layer. If you want more things to animate, just put them in their own layer.
