  Old  Need help with a simple tween problem, pretty urgent!


I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a simple problem I'm having in Flash cs4. I'm trying to have multiple motion tweens play in a specific order after clicking a button (you click one footstep and 5 more fade in from blank, like someone's walking, it'll be a lot more clear when you see the flash file).

I need this solved as soon as possible, as it's for a school project and I'm on a tight deadline.

Hoping someone has a few minutes to help me out here

Can't you have it in a movieclip; frame 1 of the tween having the Actionscript stop code, and then the button having the onclick gotoandplay code?

Yes best way to do this I found is to use AS2 and create a button on frame 1. Now instead of doing the animation INSIDE the button, do it on frame 2 to whatever frame you want stopped. Now you will have your buttons AS be something like:


now on frame 2 - whatever you have another option. do you want each "footstep" to appear after you click the previous one, or do you want them to all animate out?

If you want them to animate out one after another, your set. If you want them to come up as you click, keep repeating what you did for frame 1, only choose the next frame to start the next footstep.

If you can provide more detail on the actual way you want this to perform I should be able to help.

edit: oops, didn't see that this was such an old thread, even though it was on top.

I would recommend using Tweener.
