Flip It, Flip It Good

Let’s just cut right to the chase on this one. Draw a circle on Frame 1 of your Timeline and convert it to a symbol by selecting it and pressing (F8). Add another keyframe on Frame 20 and add a Motion Tween to the span of frames. On the final keyframe, select the circle instance, go to Modify > Transform, and choose Flip Horizontal. Now watch your animation and you’ll see that a nice little coin flip effect is in place.

Of course, you don’t have to use this tool for animations only. It can be very helpful when you just need to flip a symbol to face in another direction. And don’t forget the Flip Vertical command that appears right next to it.
