Scenes

A scene in Flash is a separate area where a new set of materials can be placed. The scene is an organizational tool more than a literal “scene.” For example, whenever a background color is changed in one scene, all scenes get the same background color. On the other hand, each new scene has none of the images of a previous scene, and each starts with Frame 1.

Frames in scenes have two different addressing modes: absolute and scene relative. Because scenes are an extension of a sequence of frames, they can be addressed as the absolute number relative to the number of frames in the entire movie. If you imagine a reel of film filled with several scenes, each frame has a distinct value beginning with 1 and ending with the total number of frames in the reel. Likewise, if you refer to a frame by its position relative to a scene, you can refer to “Scene 5, Frame 7,” for example. If each scene has 100 frames, you could refer to the same frame as Frame 507.
