    Using Flash 8, how can you apply a shape tween to a symbol which has been converted into a movie clip?

    Whenever I try, I get the green background in the timeline between the keyframes along with a dotted or dashed line. When I try to run the tween, I see the first frame and last frame only. All other frames are blank.

    I have a tutorial CD in which the trainer does this and it seems to work for him!

    It works for a motion tween OK though, and also for a shape that hasn't been converted to a symbol. I can't figure it out.

    Many thanks for that - I'll have a read. Since writing the question, I've since loaded the project file supplied with the training package and that works! So why it doesn't when I do it I haven't the foggiest! There must be some Flash experts out there who can tell me how its done.

    when creating Motion Tweens you must check the following:-

    1) in the timeline when you apply the tween it is represented by a dotted line in each frame, indicating motion tween in progres, but not yet complete.

    2) move to end of your motion clip to insert keyframe. F6 inserts a key frame into the timeline

    without the key frame the line (arrow) will apear dotted and will only be solid when insert the end key frame.
