    A better way to zoom?

    lmaclanphere Level 1

      hi all--

      I'd like to zoom in on some detail in my animation/presentation on the stage-- One way I know to do this is by creating a container mc that holds all the contents, then scale that mc up to simulate a zoom-- but then I lose my layers on the individual assets.  Is there a smarter way to do this?

      thanks

          Scaling is the means for zooming.  I don't know what you mean when you say you lose your layers on the individual assets, but you can scale individual assets as well if you create them as movieclip objects.

            thanks Ned,

            I meant to say that if I have 10 objects on stage, each on a separate layer,

            then create a container mc to hold them all-- the new mc (and all content)

            gets placed on a single layer.  I guess I was a bit confused earlier,

            thinking that I would really need to retain the original layers--  I

            suppose it's not really necessary-- but it makes editing more of a chore....
