How can I tween a Group of Groups to scale?
I use my Pshop groups in a similar fashion to how Flash uses Display Object Containers. I have one group containing the rest of my groups serving as a 'master group' so I can perform global transformations to all of my layers. For some reason, it stopped letting me scale.
Using frame animation (yes I'm using frame on purpose, not motion), I would like to get the master group to tween a scale and tranlate. I can get it to translate it's XY coordinates, but for some reason the scale doesn't work anymore. It was working before but not now. I even tried converting the group to a smart object but that doesn't help, and that's fine, I try to avoid smart objects where possible.
Does anyone know how to get this to work or what I might have done wrong to the file?
Sorry, I can't make heads or tails of the gist of your post. I also confess I have never gone anywhere near Flash, so that reference is lost on me.
Further, I looked up tween in two dictionaries, and I only got this:
tween |twēn| (also tweenie |ˈtwēnē|)
short for tweenager .
More information, such as the exact versions of Photoshop and the OS you are running, might help others in assisting you.

Do you understand the concept of 'nesting'? No I do not mean birds laying eggs. If you do, the 'groups within a group' concept is synonymous.

Thank you for the links, although I have no interest in Flash, animation or video at all.
Incidentally, I have no connection to Adobe. These are user-to-user forums.
