Hello folks, new to Animate and I was in the back smoking weed when this lesson was given (not really). Any heroic Animators out there who can help a brotha out?

Drag your bitmaps to stage one by one, each on a separate layer.

Click on each bitmap and convert it to a Graphic Symbol.

Then extend the duration of your Timeline and add keyframes for each of the moving objects (Symbol instances). Change position at keyframes and use Classic Tweens to move the objects between keyframes.

Nick, thank you very much, will proceed. BTW the Assets as listed are already saved as Symbols, thanks to my ability to read English. I guess my guesses about the right way to properly phrase what I needed to know was lacking. When the student is ready the teacher appears. Thank you again!
