Hour 8. Using Motion Tweens to Animate

 < Day Day Up > 

What You'll Learn in This Hour:

  • How to create a motion tween

  • The basic properties of a motion tween

  • How to use the Ease In and Ease Out effects

  • How to use tricks to make your motion tweens look natural and realistic

Creating an animation frame-by-frame (as you did in Hour 7, "Animation the Old-Fashioned Way") can be a lot of work because you have to draw every frame yourself. With tweening, Flash fills in the blank frames between two keyframes. Flash has two types of tweening: motion tweening and shape tweening. This hour we'll cover motion tweening. Motion tweening animates clip properties such as location, scale, rotation, tint, alpha, as well as filters applied with Flash Professional 8. Shape tweening morphs one shape into another.
