say i have a 24-layer file, and i want to combine 4 of the layers... is there a way to do that?
Mid <-- flash noobie
P.S. to benihana -- thanks for the tip last week on tying a button to a movie clip. worked like a charm.
afaik there is no command to actually flatten like you can in photoshop.
you could maybe try locking all the other layers, the doing ctrl + a to select the contents of the 4 to flatten, then cut them, select one layer, and do a 'paste in place' (shift ctrl v).
then just delete the other three (empty) layers
 if youre 4 layers to flatten contain keyframes, you may have to repeat the technique for each frame 'block' and/or manually recreate the keyframes[/edit]
Select a bunch of them, and click the layer folder icon, next to the new layer and garbage can for layers. You can hide the stuff within your layer and take less space in the timeline.
