Chapter 3. Creating Shape Tweens > Animating with Shape Hints

Animating with Shape Hints

Now that you have created a few shape tweens, you will try creating a shape tween using shape hints. Shape hints help you create and control tweens that might be complex, or not morph correctly otherwise. If you need more control over how the shape tween animates, it might be necessary to add shape hints to help Flash predictably animate. You can shape tween fills (including gradients), strokes, and alpha.

Always try to keep the shape hints in the same order as their corresponding shape tweens. Also, you should always try to place shape hints in a clockwise or counterclockwise fashion and move sequentially around the shape. The hints should always start at the upper-left corner.
