In Flash Professional CS5 Essential Training, author Todd Perkins explains the fundamentals of Flash Professional CS5, the industry standard for creating animations and interactive applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. This course starts with the basics, such as using the drawing tools to create simple animations, and progresses to automating animation with tweens and adding interactivity with ActionScript. This course also covers how to add sound and video to projects, enhance realism with effects like easing, and publish a project to a variety of platforms. Exercise files are included.
Let's look at how to reuse an animation for our slideshow. If I show the seagull layer, you can see the animation coming in up and to the left. If I hide that layer and show the crab, up and to the left looks like a good way to animate the crab as well. So let's use the same animation for the crab as we used for the seagull. To save the animation, I'll right- click the tween in the Timeline for the seagull and choose Save as Motion Preset. I'll name this preset Up and Left and then click OK.
Then I'll click on the crab in the crab layer and open up the Motion Presets panel, and there I'll expand my Custom Presets, select Up and Left, and click Apply. The animation is then applied to the crab. So there we go. To reapply animations all you need to do is just right-click your animation and then you can apply it through the Motion Editor.
