How are we supposed to work with the new motion tweens if there's no motion editor anymore? Without motion editor we can't see what kind of keyframes are set and we can't set any accelerations anywhere. Does Adobe now want us to go back and use the old motion tweens?
Thanks for your reply, but either your answer is a bit unrelated or I don't understand it. What do you mean by 'check/edit'?
What I'm saying is that there's no way to know what kind of keyframes were set at any given keyframe in the timeline without the motion editor. This is certainly not visible from the properties panel unless I'm missing something. And as far as I know the 'ease' option from the properties panel doesn't work as you would expect when using the new motion tweens. It works rather like a strange delay. As far as scripting animations goes, just to have some accelerations: Well, if I wanted to animate by script I wouldn't use Flash at all. The strong point of using Flash is that animations can (or could?) be created visually.
So to sum it up again: Without the motion editor, almost all the pros of using the new motion tweens are gone. Are we supposed to forget about the innovations the new motion tweens had brought us and just revert to using the old motion tweens then? At least there's a 'feature' now to propagete the symbol to other keyframes when using the old tweens...
i mean, look at the properties panel to see what properties have change from one motion keyframe to the next. or, change the object's property in the properties panel.
the easing works for me. it look like a simple quadratic ease-in/ease-out so if you want something else you can't use the properties panel for that.
the biggest benefit i saw from motion tweening is when tweening an x,y translation; it's easy to manipulate the path of translation compared with classic tweens that required a guide layer.
@kglad: In the properties panel I don't see if there's a keyframe set for any of the properties. For example I might have an animation from frame 1 to frame 50. The position changes from 0,0 to 100,100 over that period. But there might be other keyframes set for scale, colour, filter etc... at frames 2, 20, 40 and 49. If I look at the properties panel at any give frame I'll see a change in the position, but that doesn't mean that there's actually a keyframe set for the position of the symbol at that time.
you're both welcome.
(the best thing about this creative cloud model is there is supposed to be no need to wait for adobe to bundle a bunch of updates and make a few update releases over the next 2 years. they can release much more frequent updates with less inconvenience to users and themselves because of the cc model. we'll have to see how that works.)
I just put in a request to bring Motion Editor back into CC and future versions moving forward. I also stated not all of us are actionscript pros and tools like Motion Editor are quite useful for a non-coding designer.
I have the same problem.
Also with the "Streamlined" importing it makes flash CC completely usless for me and my company.
I am sending the request for it frequently...
The flash is dead. I'm really desperate. It's really not good to be stuck with old version forever...
I was thinking about organising some kind of a group message / petition where would flash developers & motion designer, CTOs from companies who work with Flash note their statement about this. But I'm not sure if it would have an effect. What do you think?
It's really not good to be stuck with old version forever.
At this point with crucial functions missing from flash cc and practically no advantage in comparison wit cs6 it`s the only safe/rational way, especially when you have workflows established with customers/inside your company that rely on that functions.
how can they remove the motion editor? yeah, sure, you can just use action script. but with that kind of reasoning you could get rid of every single tool as well.
FLASH CC 2.0 = just a plain text editor -> please use action script
Seriously, Adobe... WTF???
