Flash MX Shape Tweening Basics
Mr. Skocko Room 246 • 593-5446 • Mac LabValhalla Home

 

This one's as easy as it gets

Here's what we'll make:

 

Draw a circle on the Stage (no stroke)

 

Control-click down the Timeline and Insert BLANK Keyframe

 

You don't see anything because it's a BLANK keyframe

 

Draw a square on the Stage (in the Blank Keyframe)

 

Click on Frame 1 and look at the Properties Panel (below)

 

Select Shape Tween

 

Your Timeline should look like the one below (green = shape tween)

 

That's it. Hit Return (or Command Return) to see your movie (I told you it'd be easy)

 

Next up: Shape Hinting
