Chapter 11. Animating with Interpolated ... > Troubleshooting Interpolated Motion

Troubleshooting Interpolated Motion

  • Color tweens can cause the object to hiccup at a certain keyframe, shifting slightly during the sequence. Make sure you have not selected the scaling and rotation options for this particular sequence. If they are on, slight variations in the shape can occur during the animation tween.

  • If your shape tween is not working, remember you cannot apply this effect to objects: imported bitmaps, symbols, text blocks, or groups. You can, however, scale and skew these symbols, but you must use a motion tween to animate the effect.

  • Multiple shape tweens on the same layer can render confusing results if any motion is involved. Flash will calculate the shortest distance for all points, and that might not be where you want the shape to go. If the progression is garbled, place the shapes on separate layers.

  • If a symbol is not pointing in the direction of your motion guide, make sure you have selected Orient to Path in the Frame panel for that particular tween.

  • When you are applying a motion guide layer, verify that the layer you want to use the guide is indented below the guide layer. Objects on the main layer cannot access the guide unless the layer is indented. Simply placing a layer below a guide layer does not mean it can access the path.
