There are two ways to do this depending on how much you want to happen outside the frame, so to speak.

1

You can place the zoomed out image at the beginning of the timeline and enlarge it to match the zoomed in image later in the timeline, then replace it with the zoomed in image on the last frame.

2

Or you can place both images at the beginning of the timeline with the zoomed in image scaled down to match the zoomed out image, then scale it to original size later in the timeline.No, you cannot tween from one image to the other, it wouldn't recognize them as separate zoomed states of the same image. You must zoom one to/from the other size, then switch to the other image. Technically, you only need the zoomed out size, then you could mask the layer and zoom it in.

Do you know the fundamentals of Flash? This is about as basic as it gets in flash, but if you don't know the fundamentals of Flash would take a few hours of training.

But then, what is a vector slide and how is it generated?

Hi

Yes i do know the basics.

The 2 images i have are in vector format so will scale.
I want to go from image/slide1 to image/slide 2 via a zoom

I know how to zoom if it was only the first image, so i would zoom in on the first image but how do i zoom in from the first image to the second?

Thanks

would both images need to be on the same layer?

No. You must isolate the image you plan to scale on a layer by itself. It must be converted to a movie clip or symbol. Then you place it at both end of the timeline, scale one of them, and tween between them.
