Chapter 8. Animating with Motion Tweening > Adding Color Effects to a Tween

Adding Color Effects to a Tween

Any color effect that can be applied to an instance can be transformed in a motion tween. You can tween any color properties applied to either the starting or ending keyframe. For example, if the starting keyframe in a motion tween is tinted red and the ending keyframe is tinted yellow, Flash will gradually change the tint of the object from red, through shades of orange to the final tint of yellow. Use these properties to create any number of color effects in your animations. Additionally, you can tween the alpha of an object to make it appear to fade on and off the Stage.

Tween a Color Effect

1.
Open a Timeline with a tweened animation or create a new one.

2.
Select the object on the Stage on either keyframe in the tween.

3.
In the Property Inspector, select an effect from the Color popup.

4.
Click the list arrow to set the percentage of the Color Style applied or enter a value in the entry field.

TROUBLE? If the Color styles don’t appear in the Property Inspector, you may have selected the keyframe in the Timeline and not the object on the Stage.

5.
Play the animation.

Flash applies the tint gradually between the two keyframes.
