Flash Animation - Copying Frames

The previous exercise showed you how you can add and delete frames. This exercise will show you how you can copy and reverse frames to create a loop.

Step 1- Click on the Layer with your Frog... this selects all the frames on the layer.

Step 2- Move the cursor over the selected frames click and drag to the right - while still holding the mouse button down, press ALT (Win) or OPTION (Mac) and release the mouse. You've now duplicated the frames. Demo
Step 3 - With frames 12-22 still selected choose Modify > Frames > Reverse  
Step 4 - Continue to play with copying frames.
