Chapter 8Interactive Multimedia Authoring with Flash: Animation

Flash: Tweening


In this lecture you will learn

In this lecture, you will learn:

  • the types of tweening:

    • classic tween

    • motion tween

    • shape tween

  • how to create tween animation

  • how to animate an object following a custom path


Tweening

Tweening

  • To create movement and changes of visual content over time, without having to manually create the content frame by frame

  • The computer interpolates the changes between 2 keyframes


To create keyframes in flash

To Create Keyframes in Flash

  • Method 1:

    • Select a frame on timeline

    • Choose Insert > Timeline > Keyframe

  • Method 2:

    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) on a frame on timeline

    • Choose Insert Keyframe


Types of tween in flash

Types of Tween in Flash

  • Classic tween (called Motion tween in Flash CS3 and prior)

  • Motion tween

  • Shape tween


Motion classic tween vs shape tween

Motion (Classic) Tween vs. Shape Tween


Classic tween

Classic Tween

Example


Example of classic tween

Example of Classic Tween

A leaf is created as a Graphic symbol, and placed on the stage.


Example of classic tween1

Example of Classic Tween

Keyframe at frame 1


Example of classic tween2

Example of Classic Tween

Keyframe at frame 20:

The leaf is repositioned, rotated, and scaled bigger.


Example of classic tween3

Example of Classic Tween

Keyframe at frame 60:

The leaf is repositioned again, rotated, and scaled smaller.


Example of classic tween4

Example of Classic Tween

  • Result after applying classic tween to the keyframes:

  • 60 frames

  • But only 3 keyframes to specify the leaf's position, rotation, and size.

  • The computer interpolates the positions, rotation, and size of the leaf between keyframes.


Properties of a symbol instance that can be tweened using classic tween

Properties of a symbol instance that can be tweened using Classic tween

  • Position

  • Rotation

  • Width

  • Height

  • Color

  • Opacity

  • Position

  • Rotation

  • Width

Shape tween

Shape Tween

Example


Example of shape tween

Example of Shape Tween

Keyframe at frame 1:

A shape of the letter "I" in blue


Example of shape tween1

Example of Shape Tween

Keyframe at frame 15:

A heart shape in pink


Example of shape tween2

Example of Shape Tween

Keyframe at frame 40:

A shape of the letter "U" in green


Example of shape tween3

Example of Shape Tween

  • Result after applying shape tween to the keyframes:

  • 40 frames

  • But only 3 keyframes to specify the shapes.

  • The computer interpolates the shapes between keyframes.


Properties of a shape that can be tweened in shape tween

Properties of a shape that can be tweened in shape tween

  • Position

  • Rotation

  • Width

  • Height

  • Color

  • Opacity

  • Shape


Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

  • If a Classic or Shape tween sequence is working correctly: an solid-line arrow in timeline

  • If a Classic or Shape tween sequence is working incorrectly: a dash line in timeline


Possible causes for tweening problems

Possible Causes for Tweening Problems

  • Multiple symbol instances in the same keyframe

  • Classic tween applied to shapes

  • Shape tween applied to symbol instances

  • A mix of symbol instances and shapes in the same keyframe


Tween a symbol to follow a path

Tween a Symbol to Follow a Path


Tween a symbol to follow a path1

Tween a Symbol to Follow a Path

  • Motion path

    • for Motion tween

  • Motion guide

    • for Classic tween


Motion guide

Motion Guide

for Classic tween


Motion guide1

Motion Guide

  • Allows an object to follow a path that you draw as a stroke

  • Works with symbols, not shapes


To create animation with motion guide

To Create Animation with Motion Guide

  • Create keyframes like you would create a classic tween animation

  • Create a motion guide layer for the tween animation:

    • In the timeline, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) on the motion tween layer.

    • Choose the option of motion guide

  • In the motion guide layer, draw a path (using pencil or pen tool) in one single stroke.Do not create multiple strokes.

  • For each keyframe of the tween animation, drag the symbol instance to snap on the path.


Motion guide2

Motion Guide

Example:

Returning to the leaf animation to make it follow a more complex path


Example of motion guide

Example of Motion Guide

A classic tween sequence with the leaf is created using only 2 keyframes.


Example of motion guide1

Example of Motion Guide

A motion guide is created for the classic tween layer.


Example of motion guide2

Example of Motion Guide

A complex path is drawn in the motion guide layer using the Pencil tool.


Example of motion guide3

Example of Motion Guide

The leaf in frame 1 (first keyframe) is snapped to the beginning of the path.


Example of motion guide4

Example of Motion Guide

The leaf in frame 60 (last keyframe) is snapped to the end of the path.


Example of motion guide5

Example of Motion Guide

  • Result:

  • 60 frames of animation

  • The leaf follows the path drawn in the motion guide layer


More about motion guide

More About Motion Guide

  • The color and width of the path do not matter.

  • The motion guide is automatically hidden when the movie plays.

  • In the example:

    • Only 2 keyframes are used but it can have more than 2 keyframes.

    • The leaf is snapped to the two ends of the path, but it can be snapped anywhere along the path.


Motion path

Motion Path

for Motion tween


Motion path1

Motion Path

A motion path is automatically generated for each Motion twee span.


Motion path2

Motion Path

Can be edited like a stroke using Selection and Subselection tools


Motion path3

Motion Path

  • Can also be a custom-drawn stroke

  • To apply a stroke as the motion path for a Motion tween:

    • Copy the stroke

    • Select the Motion tween span on the timeline

    • Paste the stroke

Chapter 8Interactive Multimedia Authoring with Flash: Animation

Flash: Mask


Chapter 8 interactive multimedia authoring with flash animation

Mask

  • Defines areas to reveal its linked layer (maskee layer)

  • The content in a mask layer can be thought of as a hole that lets the underlying maskee layers show through.

mask effect


To create mask effect

To Create Mask Effect

  • On the timeline, arrange the maskee layer immediately below the layer that you want to be the mask layer.

  • On the timeline, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) on the mask layer, and select Mask.

More about mask effect

More About Mask Effect

  • The resulted mask effect can be seen on the stage by locking the mask layer.

  • The mask effect always shows when you do a Test Movie, with or without unlocking the mask layer.

  • Don't forget to unlock the mask layer when you want to edit the mask layer.

Blue beam layer:

Overlay the blue beam by adding it on another layer because we want to see the blue beam.
