Did You Know?

  • Taking the time to name various items in Flash can dramatically improve your workflow on any size project. Choose names for your layers, symbols, scenes or anything else in Flash that can be modified with a label. It will reduce the time and you spend hunting down items toward the end of a project and allow other people to work with you more effectively.

  • You can pull your panels together in groups that relate to each other. For example, you can put all of your drawing-related panels such as Stroke, Fill, Mixer and Swatches, in one place. This way, you always have related options at your fingertips and when you move on to something else, editing text for example, you can put the drawing super-panel-set away and call up a text panel set that includes Character, Paragraph and Text Options panels.

  • Flash movies are scalable. This means your presentation can be sized up or down based on the end user's screen size. Or you can fix the size of the window you want to display and force the movie to run at a specified dimension. And not all movies need to be 640×480 or 800×600. Try using different aspect ratios such as a letterbox or a cinema screen.

  • Symbols you create in your Flash movie can offer a huge advantage in file-size reduction if you plan to use an element in your movie more than once. Every time you bring a copy of a symbol, known as an instance, onto the stage, the resulting file size for your movie increases by only a few bytes.

  • All the Publish options in Flash (select File, Publish Settings and click the Formats tab) can be output at once. Unless you change them, all the outputs will be named with the same filename as your Flash file, but with different extensions.
