Apply Motion on a path

Motion Tween
Apply a custom stroke as a motion path

You can apply a stroke from a separate layer or a separate timeline as the motion path for a tween.

Select a stroke on a layer separate from the tween layer and copy it to the clipboard.

The stroke must not be closed. Only uninterrupted strokes can be used.
Select a tween span in Timeline.
With the tween span still selected, paste the stroke.

Flash applies the stroke as the new motion path for the selected tween span. The target instance of the tween now moves along the new stroke.
To reverse the start and end points of the tween, right-click (Windows) or Ctrl-click (Macintosh) the tween span and select Motion Path > Reverse Path in the tween span context menu.
