    Question Making a tween work

    If I use this code to colorise my movieclips my tweens (simple motion tween) do not work. Do you have any idea how I can fix that?

    I am not sure but I think that if you apply the code at the same level as the timeline tweening, the tweening will not work!
    A possible solution would be to put the colorise code inside the movieclip being tweened and make sure you give the movieclip instances the same name in each keyframe of the tweening. Hope it helps!

    Sorry for bringing up old topics, but I've come across this very thread many times in my searching - thought I'd put my thoughts in!

    Simple enough to tween such a thing

    if you have a class (or if not - not sure how this sort of code works - I know it works with classes for sure), simply use the get/set functionality for a variable, having it redrawn Then use a tween class to tween that custom property.


    Let's say this bit of code is within a class declaration (where public/private variables would go)
    public function set tintRedCustom(newValue:uint):void
        var colorTransform:ColorTransform = this.transform.colorTransform;
        colorTransform.color = newValue;
        this.transform.colorTransform = colorTransform;
    var rainbowTween:Tween = new Tween(this, "tintRedCustom", fl.transitions.easing.None.easeNone, 0, 16777214, 3, true);
    would make display object (referenced by This) tween a tint of rainbow!

    The possibilities are endless - just the moral of:

    If you have a set of code, and you want to tween one parameter or argument, but the property you want to edit or tween doesn't exists: make it!

    Hopefully this helps!
