8 tips about Flash

Regardless of whether you are a seasoned developer or a designer or a complete newbie, (re)familiarizing yourself with the software and basic terminology is a good place to start. Here is a list of tips all Flash users should know.

  1. Frame rate -> 12fps for mobile phones, 18fps to 30fps for general usage
  2. Scene -> Please do not use scenes, it is outdated and unstable
  3. Time line -> Onion skin is good for working with multiple frames
  4. Library -> Ctrl + L
  5. Button -> Try not to use it because it is very inflexible as compared to the movie clip (more another time)
  6. Graphics -> Great for animation as it has live preview from the timeline
  7. Bitmap text/Pixel font ->Round up all X, Y axes to whole numbers or risk getting blurry text
  8. Align panel -> Ctrl+K
