Stretch It to the Limit

[ LiB ] 


There are several applications that are designed to create vector artworkFlash included, of course. The ways in which these programs enable you to create that artwork, however, is not always the same. Case in point would be the capability in Flash to manipulate shapes you've drawn. Start by drawing a simple circle or square and then activate the Arrow Tool (V). Roll over the edge of the shape you drew until you see a small curved line beside your arrow cursor. Click and drag in any direction. When you let go, you'll see that your once-simple shape is now quite custom. Grabbing points as opposed to a straight area will produce different results.

This ability to manipulate shapes with such ease is a key benefit to using Flash, so I suggest you exploit it. There is just no limit to what you can do, so stretch it to the limit one more time!
