Tweening

There are two types of animation in Flash: frame-by-frame and tweened. Frame-by-frame animation changes the contents of the stage in every frame and consists of a series of keyframes. Frame-by-frame animation is both labor and file-size intensive and is best reserved for animation that evolves and is more organic, requiring individual manipulation of shapes.

Tweened animation is punctuated by intermittent keyframes, when critical change occurs on the Stage, with in-between frames that are created by Flash. Flash takes the content of two keyframes in the same layer and creates the intermediate steps to change the Stage contents from one state to the next. This process of interpolating differences in keyframes is known as in-betweening, or more commonly, tweening.
