HAHA, of all people, he asks SEEKING for help... hahaha, j/k



Importing stuff from Illustrator to Flash is as simple as selecting your path/shape in Illustrator, copying, then going into Flash and pasting it. It gets pasted as a group, so you have to break it apart (ctrl-B) until it, uh, gets broken apart. Then you add a shape tween (as opposed to a motion tween) to the frame the shape is pasted on, then go a couple of frames ahead and paste/create another shape. The first shape should now tween into the second. For more precise tweening, you add shape hints, which will frustrate you so much you will undoubtedly burn your computer and toss it under a speeding bus before you finish.



Your second question is just plain retarded, I'm sorry. Pick up a good tutorial book and you'll be set. Beer,

to make a 'loading' thing, just make it, then set it as the first thing to run, and have it cycle until the thing fully loads, theres a function for it in the 'actions' menu...
