When you're using a motion tween in Flash, you need to target Flash Player 10. Now when you're working on a project, you may be required to publish to a Flash Player version earlier than version 10. Those versions don't support motion tweens. So what you can do is convert those motion tweens into frame-by-frame animations. Just make sure that before you make the conversion, you do all the edits that you're going to do to the motion tween. This is because once you convert a motion tween to a frame-by-frame animation you can never convert it back to a motion tween.
So let's say my scene here is done. I just need to publish to an earlier version of the Flash Player. So the last step after finishing all of my animations is to convert these motion tweens to frame-by-frame animations. To do that, I'm simply going to right- click in the timeline the motion tween's span and then choose Convert to Frame by Frame Animation. I'll do this for each motion tween. I notice that Flash creates keyframes for each frame.
Now, if I want to, I can change my publishing profile to publish to an earlier version of the Flash Player without any problems.
