Terms to know

Layers: Layers are just like transparent sheets which can be placed on top of each other and we can paint on them.Whatever we want to create on the stage we need to place it on the layer. We can add layers, delete layers and change the position of the layer.The layer we currently working on is called active layer.

Frame: Layers are divided into small parts called frame .The time of the animation depends on the number of frames and the frame rate. 

Keyframe: When we need to make any change in the animation we need to insert a keyframe on the layer. We can insert keyframe just by right clicking on the frame, where we need to insert keyframe, and clicking on Insert Keyframe.
