Flash Files

Before continuing, a word on the different Flash Pro files is in order. As you work with Flash Pro, not only will you generate a number of different file types, you'll also use files that Flash Pro doesn't generate. This section provides an overview of the different files you're likely to work with using Flash Pro.

FLA Files

All editable materials in Flash are saved in FLA files (pronounce it as F-L-A or flaw). These files contain objects and ActionScript that can be changed by adding, modifying, or deleting materials. After you've saved a document in an FLA file, you can open it again and make any changes you want. In developing a large and complex movie, you might want to consider saving different progressive versions of your movie so that if some portion of a later version doesn't perform correctly, you can open an earlier version where all the parts are correctly working. For instance, you might want to save Mov1.fla, Mov2.fla, and so forth as you develop a movie.
