    recreating the OS X 'genie effect' in flash??

    hey all - is there *any way possible* to re-create something like the 'genie effect' of OSX in Flash? I have a bunch of photos that i need to jump from one side of the page to the other, and i need them to look like they're 'rising out' of point A and then reforming at point B. when i try to use the 'envelope' tool on a bitmap, and then use a shape tween between the two keyframes, it completely detroys the images between the keyframes. any ideas?

    cheers

    that might becaues you are using a shape tween convert the bitmaps to symbols and use a motion tween.

    I assume you are using MX..cause I dont know what the "envelope" tool is.

    But are you trying to use this "effect" on a .jpg? Or is a vector object drawn in FLASH or something?

    Cant youuse a shape tween? I would have to be a multi step one..maybe too many to make it worth while...lol Shape hints will need to be added too (I would think)
