Thread: Convert to symbol keeping layers

  1. #1

    Convert to symbol keeping layers

    I constructed something using a number of layers, and I want to convert it to a movie clip while keeping all the layers in tact. If I select everything and hit F8, it flattens all the layers. Is there a simple way to do this, or do I have to create the clip then bring each and every layer in one at a time?

    Just create the MC, select all layers, right-click... Copy Frames
    and paste them in the MC, that should do the trick

    or... when you select all frames and make an MC out of them, use... Distribute to layers. (don't know if this will work properly though)
