Chapter 8. Animating with Motion Tweenin... > Animating Scale and Rotation Changes

Animating Scale and Rotation Changes

Any change made to an object on either keyframe can be tweened. Included are any changes made to the scale or rotation of objects on either keyframes in a tweened span. Simply alter the size or rotation of the instance on either frame and Flash gradually tweens these properties. To change scale, you must select the scale option in the Property Inspector, while rotation has several options to choose from, including clockwise and counter-clockwise rotation, and frequency of rotation.

Change Scale During Tween

Open a document with a tweened animation or create a new one.

Select the first keyframe in the tween to open the Motion settings in the Property Inspector.

Select the Scale check box in the Property Inspector.

Change the size of the object on either keyframe with any of Flash's transform methods including the Free Transform tool, the Transform panel or the transform options in the Modify menu.

Click the Control Menu, and then click Test Movie to test the animation.

Flash gradually increases or decreases the size of the object.

TIMESAVER Press +Return (Mac) or Ctrl+Enter (Win) to test your movie by viewing it in the Flash Player.
