Alpha tween in main timeline not tweening

Aug 28, 2013 8:33 AM

Hey guys

 

 

I'm trying to do something relatively simple... in theory.

 

 

I have a movie clip on the main timeline that I want to alpha tween from 100% to 0% over 8 frames. Now if I use the AS Tween class, it does just that, no problems with that.

 

 

However, if I attempt to do the tween using the timeline, it doesn't tween at all, it doesn't even acknowledge the alpha property on the keyframe, it just stays at 100%.

 

 

I don't want to use AS tweening as it's for running on specific hardware that doesn't lend itself well to anything that runs using a timer.

 

 

What could the problem here be?

 

 

Cheers

    almost certainly user error is the problem. attach a screenshot of your timeline.

     

    also, i'm dubious that timeline tweening will run more efficiently than as tweening.  what makes you think that?

    It's pretty straight forward... I attached what I am thinking you're trying to do. Is that right?
