When using avi's in a movie can you?

Is there a way to take a few frames at a time, and either extract them or cut a few frames out of the avi? I want to animate a few frames from an AVI and use it as an intro to a flash movie. Also how do you trace an image into flash mx? I would like to maybe onion skin the image i want and then do some tracing. I dont know if that is the correct way to do it, but I thought I would give it a shot. Or is there a way to make a layer infront of an image and be able to trace the image you want on the new layer?

someone HELP!!!
