Understanding the Project File

The 06Start.fla file is an ActionScript 3.0 document that contains most of the graphics already completed and organized in different layers. However, the file is static, and you’ll add the animation.

The text layer is at the very top, and contains the company name, “Firestarter.” The flame layer contains the flame, and the bottom layer, called glow, contains a radial gradient to provide a soft glow.

There are no assets in the Library.
