    Flash MX Motion Tweening Problem

    Hey,

    I just converted over to Flash MX from Flash 5 and whenever I try to make a motion tween in an animated symbol (the symbol animate in its own timeline) It makes the little line on the time line all broken and it doesnt animate right. All it does is show the first key frame til it hits the last. Is Flash MXs way of making animated symbols different from Flash 5 or is there glitch in my software?

    Thanks

    Hi

    It does this when the object you are tweening is not been made into a symbol.
    MX is harder to use than 5 but if you persevere it is more powerful, The reference is great and although Action Scripting seems harder at first you soon get the hang of it, it may take a while though!! lol

    Within the symbol timeline you need to use a shape tween to animate the shapes, not a motion tween (which is for symbols). The shape tween option is available in the property inspector box when you select any intermediate frame between the two keyframes, but it isn`t available from the dropdown menu for some reason.

    It might seem a bit basic, but try the tweening tutorial in MX so that you can acquaint yourself with the changes from F5 (they are subtle, but pronounced enough to be troublesome).

    Hope this helps.

    PS - lucky-black-cat - how much would you give for del Pierro?

    Hi,,


    Yeah I know, shame he was doing a real good job ...

    Went to the derby game 21/9, excellent 2-0 & they looked like a team heading fore Div 1.

    Hope they don't appoint someone good.
    Hope they appoint someone who's really ugly!!
