Working with bitmaps

Flash considers anything that is not a vector drawing a bitmap.

There are two ways to bring a bitmap into Flash. The easiest is to copy it (CTRL+C) and paste it into the frame and layer you want using (CTRL+V).

The second way is to import it into the library or onto the stage.

If you want to import an animated gif you must import it to the library.
