In this video, we learn how to make objects transparent in Flash. First, open your object up and convert it to a symbol in Flash. It doesn't matter if it's a graphic or movie clip, just make sure it's a symbol. Next, click on the symbol you just created and go to "properties". Find the section called "color effect" then find the drop down menu. You will see several options, choose "Alpha". Once you do this, you will have the ability to tweak how transparent you want your object to be. Use the sliding bar underneath "alpha" to change the transparency effects to your desire. This is all there is to making your image transparent in Flash!
