Today we will look at importing files into a FLASH animation. We will also insert layers and use the <Modify> - <Transform> - <Flip Horizontal> tool.

CLICK HERE to watch Mr. Durfee's video on making an alien disco dance.

Below are the basic steps, but watch the video, above, for more complete instructions.

1. Open FLASH

2. Create New FLASH Document

3. Change the stage size to 220 x 220 pixels.

4. Import discoalien images <File> <Import> <Import to Library> go to [Shared Drive] [Durfee] [Multimedia] [Assignments] [Disco Alien Poses] Select all the alien images by left clicking and dragging over all images and then push <Enter> or click <Open>. Be sure to get all the images as well as the discoball.gif

5. Now, using the graphics you have imported to your library, add <blank key frames> and then drag over a pose (disco alien image) to create your animation.

6. Add a layer to your timeline to put in color and background. Drag the layer under the alien images layer so you don't hide your dancing alien.

Save your work as file: discoalien
