As you've seen, you can animate a clip frame by frame, but you can also make an interpolation.

Flash can create two types of tweened animation using timeline:

Shape tween

By tweening shapes, you can create an effect similar to morphing, making one shape appear to change into another shape over time. Flash can also tween the location, size, and color of shapes.

Motion tween

Motion tween is nothing but tweening a Symbol's movement from one position to another.

To implement Motion Tween all that you have to do is, provide Flash with Symbol's initial position and the end position. Intermediate tweening is done by Flash.


Transparency effect

Select the last keyframe in your timeline and double click on the object on your stage. In the properties box situated at the bottom of the screen, in the Color Menu, select “Alpha”.



Motion tween on a text

Create a new object

Write a word on the layer 1.

You will be able to give it a movement, a transparency effect or another effect, just as you've just done to the object above.

But to be able to animate each letter independently, you have first to separate each letter.
