Hour 9. Using Shape Tweens to Morph > Refining and Fine-tuning a Shape Tween

Refining and Fine-tuning a Shape Tween

Shape tweens don't always come out the way you expect. The tips we just covered are really more like rules and cautions. Even if you heed all the warnings, you still might have shape tweening results that are anything but what you expect. Flash has a feature especially for shape tweening that helps you tell Flash what you really want. It's called the Shape Hint feature, and it can make the difference between a shape tween that looks like a mess and one that looks like what you had in mind.

Using Shape Hints

A shape hint gives you a way to tell Flash exactly how to map one point in the beginning shape to another point at the end of the shape tween. You'll want to use shape hints when Flash doesn't create a shape tween that matches what you had in mind.
