These are the flash skills that we have learned and used over the course of our quarter-long computer subject.

There are three types of basic tweens we have learned:


Motion Tween- giving motion to a grouped/ungrouped object.

When you use the motion tween, make sure you put the object that will move on its own layer.
Step 1: Create the object you will be movingPicture_1.png:












Step 2: Insert a keyframe on the frame where you want the animated object to stop moving:Picture_2.png














Step 3: Move the object to the desired location:
