Extra Bits

Create a Motion p. 52

  • An animation is a series of static images (frames), where objects change incrementally from a beginning point to an end point. In Flash, we can define the beginning and end states with keyframes and let Flash generate the incremental frames. This method of creating the in-between frames is called tweening.

  • There are two types of tweens in Flash: motion and shape. Motion tween is a bit of a misnomer, as it can be used to create changes not only in placement (motion) but also in alpha transparency, size, rotation, skew, and color effect. Motion tweens are applied to keyframes in a layer and only work when the layer contains only groups, symbol instances, and/or text blocks.

    Shape tweens work on shapes, not groups, symbols, or text blocks, and are used to change or “morph” the appearance of the shape.
