Basically I want to know if there is a way to go from a zoomed in version of something, and then seeing the whole image in another frame. (By pressing a button)
Let's say there's a tree, I would bascially like (upon pressing a button which I can do) to zoom out and see the whole scenery. Is there a way I can do this without actually changing the size of the image?
The whole premise of zooming is based on scaling, so if you are looking for something that does it without changing the scale in AS2, it doesn't exist.
There are various components already made on the internet such as v-cam, you can basically control the stage/view, scaling the v-cam keeps the objects on the stage the same, but scales the camera.
Check this out, it has links to both an as2 and an as3 version.http://www.fluidanims.com/FAelite/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=3369
