    Tweening within a movie clip


      Hi there,


      am new to flash and just wondering if someone could explain this:


      Have imported a character into flash from illustrator and converted it to a movie clip symbol.  I want to animated it floating up and down within its own movie clip (independently of the main timeline) so I double click on it and try and add a tweened animation within the movie clips' own timeline.  It says i have to convert it to a symbol for tweened animation.  But why do i have to do this when i did it at the start?  I'll have two symbols of the same thing just to animate a tween within a movie clip.  Surely its already a symbol as i did this at the start?


      Am a bit confused, could someone explain the reason why it works this way?
