                                          •   You have designed
                                              some motion
                                              animation with the
                                              last lesson
                                          •   There is another type
                                              of animation – shape
                                              animation and this
                                              uses a different form
                                              of tweening called
                                              shape tweening
                                          •   It morphs a shape into
                                              something else.
                                          •   First you need to draw
                                              a shape in the stage
                                              area
                                          •   We will use the Brush
                                              tool this time

                                              do. First we have
                                              to tell Flash that we
                                              want it to break
                                              these shapes apart
                                              so that they can
                                              morph into each
                                              other
                                          •   Do this by going to

                                              then clicking once
                                              on your text
                                          •   Then go to Modify
