Flash Tutorial - Changing Positions: Flying effect

In this video tutorial we will learn an effect which is very commonly used in ecards – the Flying Effect!
Flying effect can be applied to any static objects to make them move in a certain pre-defined path. The below video shows the steps involved in creating this effect.

This effect can be used to show effects in butterflies, birds, clouds, etc. For the convenience of users we have the layers designed in advance so we can directly work on the animation. We focus on 2 kinds of movements – flying effect – for butterflies and clouds and in place movement for the flowers.
