I select where I want my motion tween to be, ctrl-click and select 'create motion tween'. It appears blue, and does not come up with an error message but no arrows appear like in the video's and the motion tween has not worked. Any ideas why? Also, I opened up a file that already had a motion tween in it (made by somebody else) to test it. I selected the motion tween and clicked 'remove tween' and straight away clicked 'create motion tween' again- to put exactly the same motion back into it, but the same thing happens- the selected area appears blue but no motion tween. Then, if I select it again, the option is 'remove motion' not 'remove tween' as before. A little complicated and could really use some help! Thanks!
Whatever you are referencing is showing the old-school motion tween implementation. What you want to do is select Create Classic Tween (a little further down the menu). That is the version with the arrows... the one I prefer.
Thanks very much for the help. Classic tween has worked, the arrows have appeared and the figure moves but the shapes do not move around their anchor points and go all over the place before suddenly appearin in the right position on the very last frame.This is a screenshot of what i see on the second to last frame:
And this is the last frame:
I made sure all the anchor points were in the right place beforehand, any ideas why the shapes wont move right?
