In this tutorial, we show how to create movie clips at authoring time, on the Stage and explain how to assign instance names to them. Then we show how to control movie clips created at authoring time programmatically. We build a simple applet in which a clip is moving around the circle. The motion is controlled by buttons as well as by keyboard arrow keys.
