Flash CS4 Workspace
You will notice that much more of the Flash CS4 workspace is dedicated to the Stage than ever before. With the new object-based animation and other new features, so much of the work is done by dragging directly on the Stage.
Flash Procedural Modeling and Inverse Kinematics
This newest version of Flash CS4 has some very nice new animation tools that help you to create complex, realistic-looking animations. Procedural modeling, Inverse Kinematics and the Bone, Bind, Deco and Spray Brush tools are the secret weapons behind new ways to create animation.
Flash Motion Editor and Presets
Flash CS4 has some new ways to create animation that will take less time and give you better results. Letīs check out the Motion Editor and Presets.

ActionScript fl.transitions and TransitionManager
One of the nice things about Flash OOP is the many pre-built classes. These classes can be thought of as built-in blocks of code. Some of the most useful are the classes used for programming animation because the complicated mathematics is already programmed for you.
Writing an ActionScript 3 Tween Function
We are ready to code the ActionScript to run the animation. First, we will add an Event Listener to listen for a mouse click. When a mouse click occurs, a function will run that will create the Tween.
