Export As: All Layers to SWF Frames
Generate HTML: Checked
Animation Frame Rate: 12 fps
Looping: Checked
Curve Quality: 7
Image Format: Lossless

Variation: You might want to try a simple variation on the animation. With each star your draw, set the transparency value to a different (progressively darker) value. This will give the appearance that the star is moving closer with each frame. You can set the transparency value in the Transparency tab in the Color palette.
