    Orbiting Planets

    twsims
      Hello Everyone,

      I am pretty much a noob when it comes to flash. HOwever, I am eager to learn and a project I have decided to pursue involves orbiting items around a central figure. Just like plantes orbiting around the sun. Does anyone have any how - to items or where I should begin. I have all the movie clips, symbols and buttons necessary just putting them all together is my problem. I have done programming in the past for Java, C# and the like so I shouldn't be too lost with any instructions.

          here's a carousel effect that's being discussed on another thread right now.

            You could do it as suggested in other reply, with code, or you could do it with
            simple masking and motion tween. Old but still valid tutorial of such :
            (motion tween and masking)
