i just started learning flash and im creating a face that bounces around the screen. now i have the thing working perfeectly it bounces around the screen but i want the face to change as it bounces. for example, when it starts bouncing it is smiling and as it nears the end i want it to change into a mad face. my question is how would i do this? would i move the outline of the smile to change? thanks for your help.

i assume that the face is it's own symbol, and probably a movie clip correct? Simply edit the movie clip of the face itself, to do the
animation you want. When you publish the movie to see the face changing, be sure
not to use flash's preview player because it won't show movie clip animations.

hope that helps. :)

No you can't do that, but I think you might be a little confused.

the motion tween and shape tween will not be on the same timeline, so
what i described is what you need to do. You will have the shape tween
inside the face movie clip symbol, and the motion tween that bounces it
around will be on a seperate timeline, where the movie clip itself sits.

Think of it as the main timeline that moves it is one, and inside the
symbol that moves, is another timeline that shapes it the way you want.
They will move independently.
