you need to use fireworks to seperate the bit you want to rotate from the background.
then inpost both pics into flash, turn the lock part that you want to rotate into a movie clip and use this (untested ) action script (where your lock moive clip has an instance name of lockmc):
_root.lockmc._rotate++; } ceasar msg:1563255 4:13 pm on Mar 18, 2004 (gmt 0)
ok so basically in the time line im making it rotate different in each one the i make it loop and i lock the other part of the pic right so just the one rotates. thanks i think i got it benihana msg:1563256 9:43 am on Mar 22, 2004 (gmt 0)
you could rotate along the timline, but if you use actionscript to do it, you will have more control if you want to speed it up, slow it down change direction etc etc
