    Curved Motion Paths in Edge

    colleen.cook

      Is there a way to edit motion paths in Edge Animate as you can in Flash? I'm trying create a curved motion path and am wondering if that's possible to edit in the program or if there's a solution by editing the code outside of Edge (using Bezier curves, etc.).

          Hi Colleen, there is currently no built-in way to have curved motion paths in Edge Animate.

           

          There is a classic workaround for this however, which involves horizontal motion on a child symbol, and vertical motion on the parent symbol. When played at the same time, these 2 motions combine to create a curved path (kind of like how the curved line on an x,y graph in algebra math class works).

           

          nested child symbol: moves horizontally

          parent symbol: moves vertically
