moving masked images in flash
on Feb 25, 2006 at 8:08:54 am

Hey, so I have this image that looks like it gets drawn because I did the mask thing over top (a whole bunch of key frames + very miticulously drawn little brush strokes). I wanted to resize the document afterward though so I go to properties, resize and now my drawing is outside of the viewable area. No biggie I figure so I highlight everything and drag it over.... but it doesn't work. Each frame has whatever previous mask drawing was in the last frame plus the new one and it appears as though it only drags over pieces from one frame at a time. Can I select everything at once? There's gotta be a way.

I hope this makes sense... I'm new so my terminology might be off...

There is a button below the timeline for "Edit Multiple Frames" Click on that, Drag the Onion Skin markers to enclose the entire animation, LOCK ANY LAYERS THAT HAVE THINGS ON THEM YOU DON"T WANT TO MOVE!!!, Under the "Edit" menu click "Select All" (or use A, A on Mac) then drag your animation to the new location.

Undo all these settings to set Flash back into normal mode...


I'm filling a need. Without me there would be no bad examples.
