How to use Tween in Macromedia Flash

1. Open up a blank document in Flash.

2. Draw or insert object onto the blank stage.

3. Highlight the image (Ctrl + A). You will know it’s highlighted because it becomes covered with gray dots.


4. Right-click on the image.

5. On the drop-down menu that appears, select ‘Convert to Symbol’.


6. After clicking that, a box will appear. Click on the circle next to Graphic and select OK.


7. Click-and-drag the image to the far-left side of the stage.


8. On the Timeline at the top of the screen, find the rectangle underneath the number 30.


This is Frame 30.

9. Right-click on Frame 30.

10. From the drop-down menu, select ‘Insert Key Frame’.


You'll know that you did this correctly if the space between Frame 1 and Frame 30 turns gray.

11. While still on Frame 30, click-and-drag object to the far-right side of the stage.


12. On the Timeline, right-click on Frame 15.

13. Select ‘Create Motion Tween’.


This will turn the gray area between Frame 1 and Frame 30 to purple and add a solid line that crosses through it.

14. To preview your movie, you can hit enter to view it on your stage, or you can hit Ctrl + Enter, which will bring up a different page for you to view it.
