07. The Symbols panel will contain a lot of default symbols. Remove these by selecting each and clicking on the trash can in the Symbols panel. Once you’ve removed all the unrelated symbols, save your file in the normal Adobe Illustrator format. Open Flash and create a new ActionScript 2 movie. At this stage, the size isn’t important, so accept the default. Set the frame rate to 30fps.
08. Next, we need to get our artwork into Flash. Choose File > Import to Library and select your Illustrator file. Flash will bring up an import dialog box that will have each layer and symbol listed. Because we took the time to create symbols and remove unrelated artwork from our Illustrator file, you should be able to accept the defaults here – but ensure that ‘Import Unused Symbols’ is ticked.
