Flash newbie here. I am trying to animate a world map, with dots popping up in various parts of the map as a timeline at the bottom of the page progresses. I have a simple shape tween of a circle that turns from black to green. I need to have 75-100 of these dots appear all over the map at 1-5 frames apart (each tween is about 5 frames).
Is there any way to put all of these tweens on a single layer, or am I going to be stuck with 100+ layers? The problem I am having with the single-layer method is that every time I add a new instance of the tween by adding a new key frame, then copying the tween and moving the dot on the stage, the previous dot dissappears, and I need the dots to gradually build up until the map is filled with them at the end.
thanks for the help!
you should really do that with actionscript. it would give you much more flexibility.
but you can use timeline animation and still simplify your approach by creating a movieclip that contains a circle that changes color over 5 frames. you can then add that movieclip wherever and whenever you want to add that tween.
