I imported a picture that i want to animate, but i have to draw the picture in flash in order to animate it. Flash is great animation software but the drawing tools suck. Is there anyway to import a picture and convert it into a flash picture?

Thanks

After importing picture into flash, you wanted to animate. try following way.

get that picture into scene and apply MODIFY->BREAK APART(CTRL + B) then go for animation you will get effect.

Otherwise create new graphics symbol and import that picture into it. After that try to animate.

If you have freehand 9 or Adobe Illustrator you can draw images in there then import them into flash

If you have Frehand 10 from macromedia you can actually create libraries of Flash symbols within freehand. The tools are great for drawing vector graphics.

You can download a thirty day trial at Macromedia.com

I know this is a different question but..
is it possible to place an anchor point on a graphic then rotate it around that point?

Thanks

first convert your picture into a graphic symbol.
then you can do all those things you can do with any flash graphic symbol like tween, rotate and tween, rotate tween and scale......... change alpha, change tint etc.

to convert graphic into a symbol, press F8 and check graphic radio button.

you can also make your imported graphic into a movie clip or a button.

when you convert a imported graphic into a symbol, by befault the anchor point is in the center. so to change the point on which it rotates, you have to "edit center" of that symbvol. to do this go to modify > transform > edit center.

then drag the + in the center to whereever you want it to be as your anchor point.
