Flash – Symbols

Symbols are self-contained pieces of movie content that we can create once and then use many times in our movies.Symbols have their own”internal timeline”, which allows them to work independently from the main movie’s timeline.

If we create a copy of symbol on the stage,it’s called instance.
Symbols are stored in a library,and we can organize the library and use it to share symbols between different movies.

Types of symbols:

Graphic Symbols
Button Symbols

Movie Clip symbols

Symbols are created by two alternative methods.

1.Converting an existing drawing or other object
2.Creating a new symbol from scratch
