Hey guys
So i been doing a school project for a micro business in school and since im the creative part of the team i was asked to do the logo and the commercial. So i did the logo in Illustration, and im trying to animate the illustration file for the commercial by selecting the vectors and moving them a bit and all that.
I cant find how to move the vectors, so i came here to ask just if Flash was capable of animating by vector movement? and if soo where the heck can i find that option?

:/ I thank you, bye :P

i don't know what you mean, animating by vector movement.

you can create keyframes, then do a shape tween (like a morph),
or a motion tween. as soon as you set up the tween keyframes,
Flash calculates the rest of the animation.

one layer for each object. many layers, many objects.

2 places for good tutorials -

http://www.lynda.com/
loads of Flash tutorials. the animation is one of the first parts
they teach, 90% of the tutorials are about actionscript, the
Flash programming language. $25 a month.

also, Adobe has a Flash Video Workshop. lots of tutorials
there too, free.

if you have a background in 3D and/or 3D animation, my guess
is, you will find Flash animation easy to learn.
