    What is a tween... (asked by software engineer, not graphics/movie/illustrator)

    rhimbo Level 1

      Hi folks,


      I am a software engineer, not a graphic artist, not an illustrator, not a Flash programmer... just to give you context for my question!


      Could someone please explain to me what tween is or what it means? I'm not even sure how to ask my question. Is it a "tween graphic," a "tween animation" or what?


      I have inherited some Java code that does graphic animation by sequentially displaying a series of PNG images one after the other. In that context, there are references to data structures called "tween".


      Assume I am a rank beginner (not in Java but in graphics, motion video, illustration) and be as pedantic as your heart desires.


      Many thanks in advance....
