Ok if I make 2 animations and import them separately into flash I get generally the effect I'm looking for. But the quality is poor, as you can see the pixilation in the face of the logo. Do you know if this is correctable with flash? If I adjust the dpi, it automatically changes the width and height. Is this effect something that step animation will do? When I followed the directions in xara3d help for making step animation, it worked for making different faces, like 1,2,3 come up on each face of a spinning button. But not for imorting multiple shapes.
