| You have already created the Flash project file for your app. Open this fla file into Flash CS5.5. Right now, we only have one layer with one frame on the Timeline. To have room to work on our animations, we can add a few frames (100) to this layer. Right-click on the Frame 100 and choose Insert Frame.|
Let's import the Photoshop image with all the design elements for the Welcome scene into the Flash Main Timeline.
A little about Flash movie clips: Flash movie clips are the building blocks for any Flash animation. Making each design element that we import into the project a movie clip will "identify" the elements to Flash. As you would expect, each movie clip must have a unique name.
A littel about image resolution: Although some iOS SDK frameworks ask for the graphics to be at 300 dpi, Flash requests that we optimize our graphics as much as possible. So I reduced the resolution of the graphics to 72 dpi. All graphics were converted to movie clips when importing.
