Animating Symbols

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter from Adobe Animate CC Classroom in a Book (2018 release), explore how to change almost any aspect of an object—position, color, transparency, size, rotation, and more—over time.

Understanding the Project File

The 04Start.fla file contains a few of the animated elements already or partially completed. Each of the six layers—man, woman, Middle_car, Right_car, footer, and ground—contains an animation. The man and woman layers are in a folder called actors, and the Middle_car and Right_car layers are in a folder called cars.

You’ll be adding more layers to create an animated cityscape, refining the animation of one of the actors and adding a third car and a 3D title. All the necessary graphic elements have been imported into the library. The Stage is set at 1280 pixels by 787 pixels, and the Stage color is black. You might need to choose a different view option to see the entire Stage. Choose View > Magnification > Fit In Window, or choose Fit In Window from the view options at the upper-right corner of the Stage, to view the Stage at a magnification percentage that fits your screen.
