Part: II Animating in Flash > Using Shape Tweens to Morph

Hour 9. Using Shape Tweens to Morph

What You'll Learn in This Hour:

  • How to make shape tweens

  • What alternatives to shape tweening are available

  • How to apply shape hints for more control

Unfortunately, the shape tween, as you're about to learn, is one of the least efficient features in Flash because it causes file size will grow. However, shape tweening is pretty cool looking! There's no other way to get the “morph” effect in Flash. So when appropriate, it's perfectly acceptable to use shape tweens.
