7. Add a new background in Flash CS3.

After various tooling around in the timeline, copy+pasting or dragging and dropping, you may even want to overlap parts of your animation until you are replete with "animatic" joy. You can then easily add a background color in Flash, using the Properties panel at the bottom of the Flash workspace (Figure 11). Just make sure you have nothing on the stage selected before you choose a new background color from the color pop-up menu. This way, you avoid having a background shape get in the way of multiple blend animations. It also cuts down on the number of objects in the resulting file and thus reduces file size a little.
