Scripting animation with ActionScript 2.0

You can use ActionScript 2.0 to add animation to your Flash applications, instead of using motion or shape tweens on a timeline.The following sections show you how to use code to animate instances, such as changing the transparency and appearance of the instance, and moving the instance around the Stage.

For information on using the Tween and TransitionManager classes to further automate code-based animations, see “TransitionManager class” and “Tween class” in the Components Language Reference in Flash Help. These classes help you add advanced easing equations and transition animations to movie clip instances in your application. Many of these effects are difficult to recreate using ActionScript without these prebuilt classes, because the code you need to use involves writing complex mathematical equations to achieve the effect.
