=== Objectives ===

A flying rocket that I could insert on top of a web page that will sell toys in order to give it a feel of dynamism.
It should be flaming, not just moving.
=== Production steps (summary) ===

* Copied a rocket in SVG from the Internet
* Made a frame-by-frame animation with 4 frames
* I broke apart the rocket and changed size and shape of the flames
* Saved this animation as a *.swf file
* Imported the rocket to a new file
* Made the rocket smaller and turned it with the transform tool
* Changed background to blue
* Made a motion tween from right to left (rocket will enter and leave the stage)
=== Difficulties and self-evaluation ===
* I didn't find this difficult.
* Please teach me how to stop the animation.
* I am quite happy with the result, but I think that the flame animation could be improved,
  i.e. the flames are hard to see in the motion animation.

=== Credits and bibliography ===

* Rocket:
* I just used the handouts and textbook
