Flash at Work: Drawing an Eight-Segment Circle

Conceptually, drawing an eight-segment circle isn’t very different from drawing a four-segment circle, except for one step: Now you have to inscribe your circle in an octagon, as shown in Figure 18.7, and figure out where the “corners” of the octagon are so that you can use them as control points. (This figure is based on eightSegmentCircle.fla on the CD.)

Figure 18.7. The process of creating an eight-segment circle can be understood by first imagining that you are inscribing the circle in an octagon.
