The Timeline

The Timeline in Flash represents a strip of “film” with frames. To understand how the Timeline works, imagine a film editor with a movable playhead that displays the contents of the current frame on the Stage when the playhead is moved over the frame. Figure 1.3 shows the Timeline. In this example, multiple Timelines (called layers) are visible simultaneously. (I'll describe layers shortly.)
