Adding and Removing Keyframes from a Motion Tween

You can add keyframes to a motion tween by simply dragging the object on the Stage on the frame you want the change (or keyframe) to be created or by using the Add Keyframe function in the Insert menu. For example, if you want the object to move to another coordinate before it reaches the end position, you can set another keyframe between them. In this way, you can animate shapes in several directions in the same motion tween. Alternately, you can clear a keyframe from the tween by selecting it and using the Clear Keyframe function in the Modify menu. In either case, the length of the tween is preserved; the frames status as a keyframe is removed and Flash redraws the animation, connecting the keyframes located before and after.
