The playhead show which frame the timeline is currently shown on the stage. The playhead can be dragged to any specific frame.


Layers organised objects on the stage. Layers are like invisible sheets where you can stack one on top of the other. The controls on the layer section allow you to hide, lock layers, and show outline.

A key frame contains content which is shown by a solid circle in the frame. The means there is something on the stage.

Empty Key frame

An empty key frame contains no content which is shown with an outline of a circle. A new flash document begin with a empty key frame.

The frame rate is number of frames played per second.

Current frame
