Here's a quote from Webmonkey's Flash Tutorial, which BTW is a great means for
"getting" a lot of basic Flash technique in a relatively short amount of time.
It starts at
http://www.hotwired.com/webmonkey/multimedia/tutorials/tutorial2.html --

"Motion tween? But it's not moving! Congratulations, you've just discovered a
quirk in the interface of Flash. As a rule, use the Motion tween for everything
but shape morphing."

p.s. Here's another hint: the only images or objects that can be *shape
tweened* are those that are drawn with Flash's (rudimentary) drawing tools.
Sigh. (Someone *please* correct me if I'm wrong, but, alas, I believe I'm not.)
