I've been using Flash for a few weeks and have scoured and
scoured, trying to solve what I'm sure will turn out to be a small
issue I'm over looking.
Basically, I have buttons, scrollpanes, and FLVPlayer
components on my stage, in separate layers that work fine when they
are on the keyframe that I add them to initially. However, I want
to animate these components moving in and out of the stage (see
www.rossmnewton.com for an example). So I make new keyframes before
and after the keyframe I added the components on, copy the
components, move to the other keyframe, paste in place, move it,
then create a motion tween, and the animation works fine. The
problem is, no matter what I do though, my buttons, scrollpanes,
and any other component, will fail to work as soon as I apply a
motion tween to them. Instantly, they stop working. And I can't
figure out how to animate these types of components without
What am I messing up here? Can you not motion tween buttons
moving around? Or an FLV player?
And I notice that it creates "Tween 1", "Tween 2", etc.,
objects of type Graphic in the Library.
