Once you create any animation, you can easily save it and reuse it as many times as you want. That's what I want to do here. I've this sort of a cool rotate in, in 3D space for this content for the Home page. And I want to reuse it for the content for all the other sections. So, all I need to do is select this motion tween in the Timeline. If I do a right-click on it, I can save it as a motion preset. So I'm going to select that. I can give it a specific name.
So Rotate in 3D is what I'll call it. And select OK. All right, you're probably wondering where it put it. Well, it of course goes in the Motion Presets panel, right in here under Custom Presets. So you can save as many as you want. They'll all be listed right in here. Then if you want to use them, all you have to do is to go to that movie clip that you want to apply that Rotate in 3D preset too.
And with this selected, make sure that tween is selected. You can click Apply. Now I can see that sort of rotate in 3D space. Notice how it does actually position it down here. I can easily, of course, start to customize it even more by moving it into position. For some of these, I want them to actually move differently as well. So you can see how this one kind of slides in like that. I have this motion path. Well, again, that's sort of a unique custom twist on what was originally a custom tween.
So again, moving on down the line, we'll go to the Portfolio section. I'll select this sign. Select this motion preset. Click Apply. And I can see that sort of rotate in just like that as well. Again, I can always sort move this. Maybe it starts over here. Then its final location is over here. So really it's all about sort of customizing each one of these custom tweens per section. In fact, I'll select this tween and kind of move it off to this side so that you can see it's sort of rotating in and then landing to place.
All right, the last one, I will turn on this Contact layer. I'll scroll on down. And this is the last panel I want to animate. So with this selected, I can select that tween and click Apply. You can see it rotate in. And not only can you adjust the position of these, I of course can adjust the length as well. So I want to make sure this goes to about Frame 90. Then I can see that sort of spin in just like that. So again, it's really easy to make your own custom presets and then store them in your Motion Presets panel and use them not only for this project, but any project that you open up in Flash.
