Step Three: Preparing the Movie Clip Symbols

Now that the images are imported, we need to place them into their own Movie Clips. This will make it easier to swap in different images later on. First lets place the map image into a Movie Clip of its own.

Map Image. This is the blue background image.

  1. Create a new Symbol: Insert > New Symbol (Ctrl 8)
  2. In the dialog box give it the name: myMapMC
  3. For type select: Movie Clip
  4. Click: OK
  5. If the Library is closed, open it: Window > Library (F11)
  6. Drag and drop the map image from the Library into the new Movie Clip. Drag: map.jpg

    Note: Setting the registration points are necessary for a realistic effect.

  7. If the Info Panel is closed, open it: Window > Info (Ctrl+I)
  8. With the image still selected, change both the X and Y points in the Info panel to: 0.0


    Image registration set to: 0.0

    Target Image. The above process need to be repeated with the target image. The target image contains the foreground image.

  9. Create a new Symbol: Insert > New Symbol (Ctrl 8)
  10. Give it the name: myTargetMC
  11. For type select: Movie Clip
  12. Click: OK

  13. Drag and drop the target image from the Library into the new Movie Clip. Drag: target.jpg
  14. Change both the X and Y points in the Info panel to: 0.0

    Note: You should now have four symbols in your Library: Window > Library (F11)


    Library Panel.
