I am new to flash. So i am trying to create an animated button, using a Movie Clip.
1. I create a Rectangle with a fill.
2. I convert it to a Symbol (Movie)
3. Double Click on the graphic to create it's on Timeline.
4. Why do i then need to convert to a symbol again?
It will not animate unless i convert that timeline button again.
I will now add a behavior, i think i am OK there...
Thanks in advance...
Thanks for the replt, but why is 3 and 4 unnecesary...how do i create the timeline for the animated button. Surely that is needed to create it's own timeline..
When you converted it to a movieclip. it already had a timeline. In step 3 you would be accessing that timeline, not creating it. Whether or not you need to convert the rectangle to a symbol (inside the movieclip) depends on what/how you intend to animate. Inside the movieclip the rectangle is the raw drawn item you started with, not an object that you can control except possibly to do a shape tween. If you plan to tween the rectangle, such as fading it or moving it, then it needs to be converted to at least a graphic symbol.
