first question here so hopefully it's okay. I've searched for how to do this everywhere online but I couldn't find anything.

I'm using flash CS6 and I have a shape. I want to animate it so that only one anchor point moves in the animation, not the entire shape. I have absolutely no idea how to do this, any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks :)

You can animate simple morphing shapes using shape tweens. They can be unpredictable though, so for longer or more complicated movements it may help to split the shape up and only shape tween the areas which are changing.
