Hour 8. Using Motion Tweens to Animate > Fine-Tuning a Motion Tween

Fine-Tuning a Motion Tween

Making a motion tween is pretty easy when you know how. Making it look good is another matter. There are a few basic techniques for fine-tuning a motion tween that will make the results more natural and believable. Although we'll see even more techniques later (in Hour 22, “Advanced Animation Techniques”), the following sections cover concepts that specifically apply to motion tweens.

Using Multiple Keyframes

Every motion tween involves just two keyframes. In the first, you tell Flash how to tween to the next keyframe. But suppose you want a symbol to move up and then back down. In this case, you need three keyframes: one in the initial location, another in the upper location, and a third in the end location. However, in this case you have only two tweens: one going up from the first keyframe to the second keyframe, and one going down from the second keyframe to the third keyframe. The process will be easier if you can sort things out this simply.
