    Tweening Animation Frames

      Question: How does one tween multiple images in FireWorks the way ImageReady tweens multiple images?

      You know, how one image fades to another? It was easy to do in ImageReady but since Adobe discontinued it, I'm only left with FireWorks.

      I've converted the frames that I want to tween, into symbols. Then I select the frames and go Modify > Symbol > Tween, but it keeps saying that I need to select different instances of the same symbol in the library. Yea, I don't quite get what that means and I've tried almost everything.

      In ImageReady, I would select the last frame and the first frame and then tween it with 3-5 frames, so it would transition better than just looping back.

      I would use PS CS3 since ImageReady supposed merged with it, but importing folders as frame is a pain in the *** since that option no longer exists.

      Thanks.

          Convert the first image to an animation symbol and set it to fade from
          100% opacity to 0% opacity. On one of the last frames of the first
          image, add the second image and convert it to an animation symbol. Set
          it to fade in from 0% opacity to 100% opacity.
