In Chapter 8, you created a three-frame animation of a bouncing ball by changing the position of the ball graphic in each of the three keyframes. Animating movement and changes to shapes by hand (frame by frame) is labor-intensive. Adobe Flash Professional CS5 reduces the number of frames you must draw when you use a process called tweening.
