How to move a movieclip along a custom path in Flash?

I got a movieclip, and I got a custom path (some curves imported from Illustrator)

How can I “attach” my movieclip so each frame it advances over a segment of the curve?.

If you need a more detailed explanation I can draw a picture.


  1. Draw a path on its own layer
  2. Cut your path Cmd / Ctrl+X
  3. Have your MovieClip Layer Selected
  4. Create the desired length of the animation and Insert Frames
  5. Then select your Movieclip, right click and Create Motion Tween
  6. Paste in place your path
  7. Go back to Frame 1 and then in the Properties panel under Rotation choose Orient to Path
