Lesson 13. Combining Adobe LiveMotion An... > Adding behaviors to play movies

Adding behaviors to play movies

Each orbiting star in the opening animation is a rollover button with an Over state and a Down state. You'll add a GoToLabel behavior and a Play behavior to each button's Down state for playing one of the movies.

1.
In the movie viewer window, move the current-time marker to the end of the duration bars of the Star Orbit objects.

Moving the current-time marker to the end of the duration bars of the Star Orbit objects

This ensures that you'll be able to select the objects when you open an independent timeline.

2.
In the movie viewer window, double-click Star Orbit 1 to open its own timeline. Then select the Star Button 1 object.

3.
Choose Window > Rollovers, or click the palette's tab to display the Rollovers palette. Select the Down state for Star Button 1, and click the Edit Behaviors button () at the bottom of the palette.

4.
In the Edit Behaviors dialog box, choose Go To Label from the Add Behavior menu, choose Composition from the Target menu, and choose Movie A from the Label menu. Then choose Play from the Add Behavior menu, choose Composition from the Target menu, and click OK.

Note

The Go To Label behavior must be assigned before the Play behavior.

5.
Click the left arrow () in the upper left corner of the movie viewer window to go back to the Opening Animation timeline.

6.
Assign movies to the other orbiting star buttons, as you did for Star Button 1. For each orbiting star button, double-click the star orbit group object to open its independent timeline, select the star button object in the movie viewer window, select its Down state in the Rollovers palette, click the Edit Behaviors button at the bottom of the palette, and assign behaviors to the Down state as described in the following table.

Note

If you can't select the Down rollover state of an object, make sure the current-time marker is over the object's duration bar in the movie viewer window.
