    motion tweening

    JS-L

      Hi, I've drawn a big scrolling background for an animation I am doing. I have a man walking on the spot whilst the backdrop behind him moves along. It was all going fine, I was using a motion tween etc. However, suddenly right near the end of my animation, the tween stops the backdrop moving any further. I have tried re applying it several times, and nothing seems to work. Is it because my background is too long, and motion tweens have a maximum length? If so can I use a classic tween instead?  The animation is only around a minute long and I'm using cs6.

       

      Any help would be greatly apreciated!

          How many frames are involved? 

           

          You will probably be better off using Actionscript tweening instead of timeline tweening.  For starters look into using the built-in Tween class, and if you need better performance you can look into using TweenLite.

            Hi Ned,

             

            Thanks for replying... It is about 1500 frames or so. I don't think motion tweens work beyond a certain size. I instead used a classic tween, which has worked, but for some reason, when I export as a png sequence the animation in the classic tween has stopped working, and it has just become a static background (this is not the case when I preview). Any ideas why that would be? Am pulling my hair out a bit.

             

            Thanks,
