Summary

 < Day Day Up > 

There's more to the Library than you might expect. In this hour, you have learned the basics of managing the Library as well as some of the ramifications of using the Library. You can get shapes into the Library either by selecting New Symbol or by selecting Convert to Symbol. Remember that converting to a symbol leaves behind an instance of the symbol you just created.

When you have some symbols in the Library, you can use them anywhere in a movie. Instances of symbols don't significantly add to the file size. Plus, each instance can be modified in terms of position, rotation, scale, tint, brightness, alpha, and blend plus all the filters. Therefore, you can recycle but change a single graphic. In this hour you also learned that you can use instances of symbols in the creation of other symbols. As you begin to understand the hierarchy of symbols, you'll be unstoppable.
