I am a newbie to the forum and also to the Adobe Flash Pro CS6. I have a question about the motion tween of fla@sh pro cs6.
My question is, if I make some movie clip symbols and apply motion tween to them separately, then can I again group all those movie clip symbols to apply another motion tween to all of them in group?
What I am trying to do is, I want to display the word "WELCOME" in my animation. First the letters 'W', 'E', 'L', 'C', 'O', 'M', 'E' will come to stage from different locations one after another. So I make 7 movie clip symbols of the letters and apply motion tween to them separately.
Then when they are united at the center of the stage forming the word, then the word will move up from the center to the top-center location. My problem is, I can not apply motion tween to the word as a whole now. I want to avoid adding motion tween to them separately again. Is there any way to do that?
Thanks in advance to all of you ..................
What you need is an inner Graphic symbol. What I mean by Graphic symbol is when you select all your letters and hit "F8", choose "Graphic" instead of "MovieClip." In the properties panel, you'll see that one of the sections is called "Looping." Select"play once" (the default is "Loop"). Inside that graphic should be the animation of the letters moving in from left to right.
On the outer timeline, put a keyframe at the same frame number where the Graphic's animation ends. Change the Looping to "Single Frame" and then type in the frame number of the last frame. You can then create a motion tween that animates the graphic symbol upward at its final frame.
Thanks Amy .......... that really helped me
