I am completely new to Flash and have been learning about alpha tweening to fade one .jpg image (of a customer's happy comment) to another. This works fine if I only have a small number of comments, but modifying each and every stage of the transitions would be a huge task if I have more than a handful of comments to deal with.
Is there some way to set the transition and then apply that transition to all images? That way, I would only have to amend the transition once and it would make no difference whether I had 2 or 200 images to fade in and out of.
Many thanks in advance.
use actionscript, not the timeline, to fade your comments.
A way to do this in Flash CS4 with very little code is using tween instances. You make the motion in one motion tween (you can make it as fancy as
you want on the timeline, eases, etc), give it an instance name, then just apply that tween to the other instances using one line of code. To update the tween you just go to that span and change it - everything instantly updates.
In using this I've found multiple advantages - such as for menus,they roll out and in automatically on mouseout and so on. Some things are actually made easier
