Step Three: Place the Movie Clip on the Stage

Take the Movie Clip out of the Library and place it on the Main Stage.

  1. Open the Library: Window > Library (Ctrl L or F11)
  2. Drag your new Movie Clip onto the: Main Stage
  3. Place you Movie Clip just: Below the Main Stage

    Note: It is best if the Movie Clip is just above or below the Main Stage so when the frame loads the Movie Clip rolls into view. I placed my Movie Clip just below the Main Stage. If you want the Movie Clip to roll in from one side place the clip to the left or right of the Main Stage (in the ActionScript that follows you will need to swap all the Y's for X's).

  4. If the Property Panel is closed, open it: Window > Properties > Properties (Ctrl F3)
  5. In the Property Panel give the Movie Clip an Instance name: MC
  6. Instance Name

    Note: The name MC is specific to the instance on Stage and does not relate to the name of the symbol in the Library.
