Movie Clips Flash

Movie clips are nested movies inside the main movie. You can add animation, actions, sounds, other symbols, and even other Movie Clips to Movie Clips. Movie Clips have their own timelines, which run independently of the Main Timeline. This can be useful for animations that continue running after the main movie has stopped. Unlike animated Graphic symbols, Movie Clips only need a single keyframe (the initial one) in the timeline of the main movie to play.

Creating a Movie Clip using existing animation
You can create a Movie Clip from an empty symbol, as explained in the previous section. However, the simplest way to create a Movie Clip is to use existing animation from the Main Timeline. To do this:

  1. Select every frame of every layer of the existing animation that you want to turn into a Movie Clip.
  2. Copy the animation by doing one of the following:
    • Right-click or Ctrl+click and select Copy Frames from the pop-up menu.
    • Select Edit➪Copy Frames (Option+Command+C or Ctrl+Alt+C) from the Main Menu.
  3. Select Insert➪New Symbol (Command+F8 or Ctrl+F8) from the Main Menu.
  4. Again, as shown previously , the Symbol Properties dialog appears.
  5. Give the symbol a name and select Movie Clip as the Behavior. Click OK.
  6. Now select the first frame of the -timeline in the new symbol that was just created, and paste the frames you copied by doing one of the following:
    • Right-click (Ctrl+click) and select Paste Frames from the pop-up menu.
    • Select Edit➪Paste Frames from the Main Menu.
  7. Use Edit➪Edit Movie (Command+E or Ctrl+E) to return to the main movie.
  8. Select the frames from the main movie’s timeline (if they aren’t still selected from the first step), and delete them with Insert➪Delete Frame (Shift+F5).
