I am importing an ai file into flash which I will have to use multiple times in my timeline. What is the most optimal way to make changes to an ai graphic that appears in multiple places, without seeing your change from the first one on all of them?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If the imported AI graphics show in the Flash movie's Library, duplicate the graphics that you need to change. Then you can edit the duplicate and the original will remain as it was.
If the imported AI graphics are imported directly to the stage, select one and then make it a movieClip. Select the new movieClip in the Library and then duplicate it. You can now edit or alter the duplicate without affecting the original imported graphic.
This was most helpful. Thank you for your time!!!
