Chapter 6. Advanced Animation > Animating Symbols

Animating Symbols

In the splash screen, one of the animated effects we will be creating is the rotating button image. The button needs to be made into a symbol and animated. We will be using a new animation technique to accomplish this. Thus far, you have used symbols as graphic objects for tweening; the animation resided in the main scene file. Symbols can also be self-animated. If you wanted to animate the button spinning in the main scene, you would have to tediously rotate it slightly every few frames throughout the entire splash sequence. By self-animating the button, you will be able to create a much smaller sequence with a single rotation, and the button symbol will rotate throughout the splash sequence.
