I am not animating for the web but for video and don't really understand or use ActionScript or runtime. I just need an animation that I can import into and composite in either After Effects or edit in Final Cut. It would be helpful to explain that only Graphic Symbols will play on the main timeline, not Movie Clip Symbols. What a headache it was finding this out through other sources.
I'll try to help you. If you want to only create animation, then create animation, you don't have to use ActionScript for that. But how to create animations, and use of Tween etc, you will have to learn that on your own as that we can't teach you here writing text, it would be too long to explain.
But if you're working with After Effects or Final Cut then this shouldn't be a problem for you.
